Planning a wedding can be a rewarding and bonding experience for newlyweds, as they prepare to enter married life, which is no easy feat to begin with!
Love is at the center stage, but when you throw in the pressure of having to plan an event where everything should be perfect while pleasing both sides of the bride and groom’s family can be a daunting task for any young couple. Memories that will be remembered for the rest of their lives will be created that day, and the pressure of having everything going down perfectly can be stressful and downright nerve wrecking.
Heidi and Val Zherelyev’s wedding day was on the anniversary of their elopement, exactly 5 years earlier. It was the perfect time for the two of them to finally have the wedding of their dreams in Arizona.
With all the stress of the wedding planning, Heidi noticed that Val was a bundle of nerves and with the help of a friend and her brother, she planned something to light up his mood.
Her friend had a wedding dress laying around, and Heidi decided it would be priceless to send her brother Eric dressed in an old wedding gown to meet Val in her place for the first look.
Photographer Kevin Chole captured the hilarious moment between the brothers-in-law, while the bride watched the whole thing! As if this alone wasn’t enough, the groom and Heidi’s brother decided to have more fun take some romantic pictures.
Val was able to relax with the whole experience and really be able to appreciate the family he joined when he decided to marry Heidi.
Her father passed away when she was 18 years-old and both her brothers were always there for her. Her brother Carson was officiating the ceremony, and it was important for her brother Eric to also be a part of the wedding, even if he had to be the comic relief.
Moments like these are hard to come by and are meant to be treasured for a lifetime.
