Heather says of the facility, “and many people commented that it looked like it was straight out of Hogwarts!” The dining room was decorated with gold pieces, including painted wine bottles, picture frames and candelabras, as well as tall, thin glass vases filled with purple and blue flowers, peacock feathers and gold accent pieces. “The room felt cozy and lively with all of the rich colors and dramatic lighting,” Heather says. The four-tiered, round wedding cake was covered with a light coral icing and embellished with strands of gold detailing and a frosted gold medallion on the side of one tier. For their honeymoon, Heather and Corey spent six nights at the Dreams Cancún Resort & Spa in the Caribbean. Today, Heather and Corey continue to live in Columbia. Heather is a ninthgrade teacher for Jefferson City Public Schools, and pursuing a master’s degree full time in the University of Missouri Teaching Fellowship Program. Corey is an equipment technician at MBS Textbook Exchange. Heather is the daughter of Pam and Barry Slansky of Columbia, and Corey is the son of Debi and Bud Johnson of Columbia.
