Heather and Jack at The Estate at River Run

Heather and Jack were introduced through a mutual friend in their college town at Virginia Tech! Jack made his move and asked Heather to join him at his fraternity’s date function and they began officially dating shortly after that. 

Due to both of their heavy pre-med workloads they had plenty of library and dining hall dates. According to Heather, “We both have such high energy and were drawn to each other immediately. I always knew he would be in my life whether he was going to be a best friend or my husband.”

Jack had a beautiful proposal planned on a nature hike in Dallas, Texas where he would pop the question at a peak overlooking the valley. This plan was short lived due to Heather deciding she was far too hungry to hike any longer and forced Jack to take her to get a snack. After a quick stop for an emergency Slurpee and gummy worms, Heather was happy again. Once they got back home, without hesitation, Jack handed Heather an empty ring box with a note that read, “I love you.” Heather then turned around to see Jack on one knee and she burst, “Are you really doing this now? In the kitchen?” This expression was followed by tears and an ecstatic “YES!” 

The couple chose The Estate at River Run for the wedding. “As we were driving up the long, beautiful driveway, I began to cry and said, “This is it, I can feel it.” There was just something so magical about the venue and the surrounding scenery, river, and woods!” 

A live pianist filled the sounds of the ceremony overlooking the river. The ambiance was simple elegance with rose, champagne, white, and gold colors. They wanted it to feel classy but not overdone. 

Wanting to incorporate their love for medicine into the day, a traditional guest book was swapped for a prescription pad with a sign that read, “Write your prescription to a happy marriage.”  The night was filled with loved ones celebrating their beginning of forever, Heather and Jack couldn’t have dreamed of a better day!
