Heather and Alexander’s Elegant Black tie wedding is one of the most gorgeous features we have done! Between the custom Vera Wang dress, vintage Rolls Royce, and stunning Napa Valley venue, what more you you ask for!? Unica Forma also created elegant custom gold engraved wedding invitations that you’ll see in the photos below!
Heather Dreblow (now Townsend), 30, CPA & CFP currently launching her own financial planning firm. Seattle, WA
Alexander Townsend, 44, Tax Attorney, Seattle WA
Alex was Heather’s boss in NYC. They had to keep their relationship a secret until they knew it was serious so Heather would refer to Alex as “B” on the phone with her friends and family. It stood for Boss, Boyfriend, her Mr. Big etc. Once they came out to HR the company was fine with it, but the name B stuck. Alex is referred to as B by the family and ever Mr. B by Heather’s mom.
Heather – Ah!, he is intimidating and wow he has a big butt!
Alex – When I first met Heather, I was obviously struck by her physical beauty, however, after our first conversation I was blown away by her ambition. She demonstrated a laser focus with respect to her goals and how she planned to achieve them.
When did each of you know you were in love?:
Heather – When I went out of town for a weekend and he told me had peanut butter waffles for dinner. It’s my favorite food and my go to dinner. I thought it was just a me thing, but he adopted it and has peanut butter waffles with me for dinner 2 to 3x a week! It’s a match!
Alex – One night we were having a quiet dinner sitting on the floor of my previous apartment – using no furniture, no television or radio – just us and a view of NYC. In this simplistic moment, without any distractions, I was able to appreciate the connection that Heather and I had as our conversation flowed. I realized, during this night, that I loved Heather and didn’t want to be without her.
In the Loire Valley of France Alex surprised Heather and took her up in a hot air balloon and proposed over a chateau.

Alex and his groomsmen made their grand entrance down the aisle to Game of Thrones
theme song. Heather surprised everyone and arrived in a 1959 Rolls Royce to walk down the aisle.
The ceremony. Heather’s mentor, Don DeMoss, was their officiant. He asked Heather &
Alex questions every month about their relationship and each other. The rule was they
couldn’t share there answers with each other until after the wedding. He created the
ceremony based on those answers. Heather & Alex heard each other’s answers for the
first time during the ceremony and there was a mix of laughter and happy tears.
