Will and Heather’s wedding was intimately planned out just like a movie script and their wedding guests were absolutely surprised.
Well, Straight Outta Compton producer Will Packer tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Heather Hayslett, in a romantic and intimate wedding at their brand-new Atlanta home in August– and the whole thing was a big surprise to their guests!
After purchasing their brand new home in Sandy Springs, Georgia, the couple planned a large housewarming party to celebrate. That’s when the surprise wedding idea was born. “When I saw her at the end of that aisle I just lost it,” says Packer. “That whole backyard was crying.”
The couple’s surprised wedding was officiated by Packer’s childhood friend, and the couple decided not to prepare vows, but to speak from the heart.
“I always imagined that my wedding would be just me looking into my husband’s eyes and us professing our love for each other, and that is exactly what we did yesterday,” says the bride. Hayslett was a vision of beauty in a stunning champagne satin Eve of Milady wedding gown with a silver beaded overlay. “When I went to look for a dress, I wanted it to be grown and I wanted it to be sexy, but I wanted it to be classy too,” she tells ESSENCE. “I told Will, ‘I want to walk down that aisle and see drool coming down the side off your lips.’ And, I could tell by the look on his face when I came down that aisle that I had done what I came to do. He couldn’t keep still.”
