We are pleased to introduce you to Heather and Nathan, another inspiring couple registered with bella vita! We have come to know Heather, her family and her friends since she has registered with us and we are so excited for her and Nathan- it's like we are sending off one of our own!

Heather and Nathan met during the fall of their sophomore year at Auburn University. Nathan had become friends with two of Heathers sorority sisters and unbeknownst to Heather they told Nathan that "they had a really cute friend he needed to meet." Heather was so embarrassed when her sorority sisters got home and told her what they had done! A couple of weeks later Nathan got a hold of Heather's phone number and they were on their way to TCBY for a blind date. "I'll never forget that moment," Heather says, "we began dating in October 2005 and have been together ever since! Who knew a blind date would turn into marriage!"

Nathan got down on one knee on February 7, 2009 in front of Samford Hall (on Auburn's campus). Heather was completely shocked and surprised! They spent the afternoon at the Georgia Aquarium and returned to Auburn that night to celebrate with their friends and family at a surprise dinner Nathan had planned. What a gentleman he is!

Heather and Nathan tie the knot on May 22, 2010 at St. George's Episcopal Church in Germantown, TN. It will be a beautiful wedding filled with life and love!

Congratulations Heather and Nathan! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding- we are honored!

A Bella Vita Registry- In Heathers Words

BV: You are almost married, how has Bella Vita treated you so far?
HEATHER: Everyone at Bella Vita has been extremely helpful and friendly throughout the whole registry process. They have been so easy to work with and have been great at communicating to me about my registry.

BV: Is there a certain feature or aspect to our registry process that assisted in your decision to choose Bella Vita?
HEATHER: I think it is so helpful that you will order items ahead of a shower or the wedding to have on hand for guests to purchase. I feel so special that there are items that are just in the store for me!

BV: Why did you choose Bella Vita over other boutique stores when it came time to register?
HEATHER: I chose to register at Bella Vita because they offer such unique gifts and home items. They also carry Casafina and Good Earth Pottery, two brands I wanted to register for and not many stores carry.

BV: If you could list one reason why you chose Bella Vita, what would it be?
Unique gifts and great service!

BV: Are there certain items on your registry that you most hope to receive?
HEATHER: I really want to receive my everyday dishes and serving pieces, as well as my everyday glasses.
