For starters, their introduction was over a cup of tea, and although Heather immediately noticed Steve's smile, what won her over was his Welsh pronunciation of "banana bread." To compound the cute factor—and much to Heather's initial dismay—her married name is, wait for it, Heather Hetherington. So, yes, this couple is charming, no doubt, but their nuptials at Rumbling Bald Resort were just as so. Need proof? Not only did Heather walk down the aisle arm-in-arm with both her father and stepfather, but also the couple participated in a "ring warming" ceremony, in which rings were passed around and prayed upon by immediate family sitting in the first rows before being exchanged. As for the reception, it was filled with lush, eucalyptus arrangements, surrounded by amazing mountain views, and, because you can't have a Lake Lure wedding without some dancing (Dirty Dancing was partially filmed there, after all), moving and grooving. Cheers to these two who clearly—pun intended—had the time of their lives.
