Reid and Lindsay had a beautiful late Summer wedding at The 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The ceremony took place in the Fountain Garden, and the reception followed in the Conservatory. What a gorgeous event! We were so honored to be a part of it! 🙂

Oh wow, there is so much I could say about Mike and Angie’s wedding. I met them several months before the wedding and was so excited to hear that they were planning a Buffalo River wedding in Ponca, AR. Ponca is one of my favorite places on the planet, and since I own land nearby, I feel like home there. Dad and I often go on adventures out by the Buffalo, cameras in hand, like modern day explorers. 😉 So, I knew we would LOVE shooting this awesome couple’s wedding. And we DID!! It was a beautiful Fall wedding at a gorgeous lodge that backs up to a creek and the woods. If you’re ever in the area, you should definitely check out the Cedar Crest Lodge. It’s perfect for small weddings or family reunions! 🙂
Anyways, here are some of our favorite portraits from Mike and Angie’s special day. Enjoy!!! 🙂
Eric and Laura were such an awesome couple!! They came up from Texas to have their wedding at Laura’s parents’ house in Little Rock. It was such a lovely Victorian home – it was the perfect venue for a small Fall wedding. I have to say, I was in love with the details of this wedding. The moss, the deer, the flowers – *sigh* – perfect! After the ceremony, we headed to the Mark Twain Riverboat for a casual reception and short river tour. Our groom is licensed to drive these awesome boats, so he got to steer for a while! So cool! 🙂
*Sigh*…this wedding was so gorgeous. It took place at the perfect time of day, during a beautiful time of year, at a stunning location, in to-die-for light. 🙂 Stephen and Ashley had their lovely tiny wedding ceremony at St. Catherine’s at Bell Gable in Fayetteville, AR. Their informal reception followed at the Cedar Lodge in Bella Vista, AR. The day was just so picturesque from start to finish. If only all weddings were this easy! 😉 One of my favorite things from their wedding was the replica of the chapel Ashley’s grandfather made them as a wedding gift. He made it by hand, and her mother painted it. It brought tears to my eyes when they opened it!!
We had such an amazing time photographing Bill and Nicole’s Fall wedding here in Eureka Springs, AR. They were married at the always stunning Thorncrown Chapel and had a reception following at the Basin Park Hotel. We LOVED everything about this wedding from Nicole’s GORGEOUS dress, to the blind-folded prayer before the ceremony, to the great band, to the lovely decor at the reception. 🙂 Here are a few of our favorite portraits from their special day!! Enjoy!
Matthew and Alyssa were such a sweet couple. 🙂 They had the perfect intimate Summer wedding in Eureka Springs, AR. Their ceremony was at the gorgeous Thorncrown Chapel, and they had a reception following at the Sky Ridge Pavilion.
I have to say, when I saw Alyssa’s dress, I was totally floored! I loved the dress and cathedral veil combo – so so gorgeous. 🙂 Matthew and Alyssa also had some super cool cakes featuring fairy-tales and books. They had such a fun style!
Here are some of our favorites from their special day. Enjoy! 🙂
I was actually lucky enough to meet Gizelle long before her wedding and chat with her about what she was envisioning for her big day. We had a great time getting to know each other over coffee, so I was totally thrilled when she booked us for her wedding. Once it arrived, it was a gorgeous Spring day with plenty of sunshine and a lot of wonderful family and friends who traveled thousands of miles to see Brendan and Gizelle marry. The wedding and the following reception were both held at St. Anthony’s on the Creek in Lowell, AR. This is such a beautiful venue!! We were excited to be able to shoot there when everything was in full bloom! And of course, Brendan and Gizelle were such a sweet couple to work with. We are just so blessed to have such great clients. 🙂 Enjoy!

We had the privilege of shooting Spencer and Amanda’s wedding on a blazing hot Spring day in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. It was sunny and gorgeous and they were so much fun to work with! 🙂 Having never been to Walnut Ridge before, we were more than pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the chapel at William’s Baptist College was. The receptions was held afterwards at the First Baptist Church nearby, and it was gorgeous as well! We especially loved all of the fun decor they chose for the reception – lots of little birds, crystal white birdhouses, and bright blue accents. 🙂
First, let me just say that I absolutely LOVE this couple. 🙂 I was introduced to Sammie about 3 years ago by our company’s Children’s/Family photographer, Nicona Jones. We all went out to dinner, where I also met Sammie’s boyfriend at the time – Wesley. They were such a fun couple! Not long after, Sammie asked me to do a portrait session for her. She ended up loving those portraits, and later hired me to do a couple’s session for her and Wesley. Fast forward a few years, and I had the privilege of shooting their engagement session, Sammie’s maternity session, AND FINALLY they’re BEAUTIFUL wedding. 🙂 I have to say, I love building relationships like this one with my clients. Dad and I continue to be blessed with lifelong clients who include us in all of the big events of their lives. They trust us wholeheartedly to capture all of the wonderful moments and phases they want to remember and be remembered for. And, of course, we are always honored to do so. 🙂
Now, on to the wedding! Wesley and Sammie were married and held their reception at The Garden Room in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I have to say, I love this venue. The people there are polite and gracious, and the atmosphere is that of a beautiful vintage/rustic backyard wedding (in a super GORGEOUS backyard ;). It was a warm late Spring day and it was sunny and perfect. Can’t get much better than that!
I am SO excited to be blogging this wedding! Allan and Shayla had their wedding on the PERFECT day. It was Spring, the foliage was just barely starting to bloom, the sunlight was golden, and the location was epic. 🙂 For those of you that aren’t familiar with the area, Castle Rogue’s Manor is an amazing location. It’s like a medieval wooden sprawling castle on the edge of a mountaintop overlooking the lake. LOVE IT. Needless to say, when you combine that type of location with a sweet fun couple who are celebrating the best day of their lives, it’s MAGICAL. 🙂 Hope you enjoy these portraits as much as we enjoyed taking them!
