brianne & justin

Mr. & Mrs. Heape, the newlyweds and expecting parents.

We met in the halls of our high school, but it wasn’t until college that our love story began. Initiated by a few, flirtatious conversations, a spark was lit through friendship and progressed. As months faded to years, our love grew stronger – but, the distance (in mileage) between us grew farther. As Justin moved to Athens, Brianne packed her bags for the city of Savannah. On this family beach trip to Grayton Beach, Justin asked Brianne to marry him. She said yes! On September 1, 2011, we embarked on a journey… a Heape of love. Documented through our blog, we share our journey of a long distance relationship, job searching, moving, finding our home, planning our wedding, decorating our home, various DIY projects, and the everyday’s of life in the Heape home. Our life together a blessing from the Lord and filled with a Heape of love.

I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine… Song of Solomon 6:3

Brianne, the wife

I am a 26 year old, PR professional who enjoys life and my recent journey… life as a wife! I am blessed with a wonderful familyfabulous friends, and a best-friend who I fell in love with. On May 5, 2012, I married the love of my life and in October of 2013, we found out we are expecting!

My life has been impacted by many incredible people, but one remarkable lady will always hold a special place in my heart, my Mema. She taught me the necessities of life such as integrity, honesty, and patience. She is also the inspiration of a charitable program I created in her memory, Mema’s Closet. I have my amazing parents {Brian and Lisa}, to thank for introducing me to my Lord and Savior, for being such powerful, Spiritual leaders, and for setting such an incredible example of what marriage should be.

To add to my list of dreams coming true, I’ve recently launched an Etsy shop with one of my best friends from high school – Chevvy & Ron’s. Be sure to check it out for some of my custom creations, including wooden door hangers, celebratory signs, pendant banners, and other art!

Justin, the husband

I am a 24 year old, University of Georgia graduate who lives life to the fullest. I am the youngest son of Barry and Teresa Heape. My favorite pastimes include fishing and hunting. In 2009, I transferred from Auburn University to the University of Georgia. Here I graduated with a Terry College Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Management. Eventually, it is my dream to own my business – potentially as a franchise owner. As for today, you can find me in the IT department of Heritage Bank.

Throughout our five year relationship, I fell in love with Brianne. In the fall of 2010, I asked her dad for her hand in marriage. On September 1, 2011, I asked her to marry me. She is my best friend and I can’t imagine the rest of my life without her. On May 5, 2012, I married my bride and am anxious to see our lives grow together as one.
