This wedding was a fairytale. It was the closest thing to a Disneyland wedding you could imagine, without flying the entire bridal party to California! Chason and Jennifer have been together for seven years. It was May 16th, 2011 when Chason asked Jennifer to be his girlfriend in the halls of Skyline High School. It was May 16th, 2015 when he asked Jennifer to be his wife in the halls of Skyline High School. It was only right to make it official in the halls of Skyline high School (jk)…But they did get married on May 16th, on the most beautiful day at Wadley Farms Castle.
Jennifer could be a professional bride. She was SO good at it. When I arrived at the Grand America Hotel, I rang the doorbell to her suite and was welcomed into her family. Her and her girls were keeping her calm, beautiful and staying excited about all the things in store for their big day. She had personalized gifts for each of her bridesmaids, ring bearers, groomsmen, groom and family. Her couch was filled with all the details I needed to shoot. And she was prepared in every way.
There was SO much crying during these intimate hours of getting ready. Sweet tears of love for each other. After everyone was fully glam, they headed for the limo and were off to Wadley Farms Castle.

The Outdoors Ceremony
The ceremony was lead by the best officiant I have EVER witnessed. It was personal, funny, fun, emotional, sweet. Before they even shared their vows, we got to learn so much about their love. There were so many more tears. The bridesmaids were emotional watching their best friend marry the love of her life. The groomsmen were emotional that they were in black suits with the sun on their back. ;)
The night ended with a dinner, beautiful toasts, dancing and of course, sparklers. It couldn’t have been a better evening celebrating Mr and Mrs Heywood.
Inside Wadley Farms Castle
The castle was filled with the most elegant decor. Details, details, details. Jennifer is organized and thoughtful. Her details weren’t just beautiful, but so personal. Their Disneyland pins were on the sign in table. The guest seating chart was titled “Be our Guest.” Other favorite Disney quotes and decor were all across the room. The Photo Booth station at all their photo booth strips from seven years of dating.
