Heidi and Merritt in Traverse City, MI

Originally, Heidi and her mother planned to design Heidi's wedding gown together, but during a visit to To Have & To Hold Bridal Boutique & Formal Wear with her bridesmaids to select their dresses, Heidi found the perfect gown for herself. "It matched the dress we envisioned exactly," she says. Merritt, an F-16 crew chief for the U.S. Air Force, wore his dress blues.
