An Arkansas Navy and Blush Wedding | Jeff & Amanda

An Arkansas Navy and Blush Wedding | Jeff & Amanda

The flowers were ready. The decorations were in place. The dress was zipped up, and she was as ready as she would ever be. The ceremony was due to start in two hours, and Amanda stood outside the sanctuary doors, arm in arm with her father. The music began, the doors opened, and Amanda saw her groom waiting for her at the end of the aisle. Jeff smiled with tears in his eyes as Amanda’s father led her towards him, hugged her, and handed her over to her soon-to-be groom. And even though many of the circumstances leading up to that very moment had been bit overwhelming, none of that mattered anymore. All that mattered was the love that they shared and the union they were soon to enter into.

Jeff and Amanda, thank you for trusting us to document your day. We loved spending it with you, and we hope that these photographs will be a precious and sentimental reminder of your first day as husband and wife.

A DeGray Lake Engagement | Katie & Matthew

A DeGray Lake Engagement | Katie & Matthew

She was the shy freshman, and he was the outgoing junior. Although neither of them were music majors and they were both in different seasons of life, somehow they found themselves involved in the Henderson State choir. One day, like any other, Matthew was joking around during rehearsal and his sense of humor, green eyes, and rosy checks happened to catch Katie’s attention. And while it took a while for their friendship to develop, eventually they both realized they had more in common than they could have ever imagined. They both love to laugh, enjoy life, and most importantly, they both love The Lord and want to honor Him with their lives. Over time, their friendship turned to love… and two years after they began dating, Matthew asked Katie to spend the rest of her life with him.

Over the weekend, Lucas and I met up with Katie and Matthew for their DeGray Lake engagement session and had a fantastic afternoon exploring with them! These two know how to have fun together, and their adventurous spirits and general silliness was a pleasure to photograph!

Katie and Matthew, thank you so much for trusting us to serve you during this season of your life. We hope you love these memories we captured, and we’re very much excited to see you both again!!

A Natural Garvan Gardens Wedding | Ryne & Tara

A Natural Garvan Gardens Wedding | Ryne & Tara

Half a dozen or so ladies sat around a large dining room table in a room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking Lake Hamilton. Some perfecting their hair and makeup, others simply enjoying their time together while sipping from their personalized mason jars. As they prepared for the day ahead, they listed to a mix tape the groomsmen had prepared for the occasion the night before, complete with their own recordings of silly commercials, radio talk show segments, and sentimental tidbits from each of the men who held such a special place in Ryne and Tara’s heart. Their thoughtful faux radio show was the perfect background for a relaxed morning, overflowing with excitement for the day to come.

Soon, Ryne arrived at the lake house for his first look at his beautiful bride. Their time together was sweet and meaningful, and when it was over, the bridal party cheered from the balcony above. We then headed to Garvan Gardens for their ceremony, which was filled with natural beauty from the beautiful glass chapel with stunning architecture. After, their reception at The Regency was a fun time of celebration for the new couple and their closest friends and family. Overall, their day was elegant, fun, and perfectly represented the two of them as a couple.

Ryne and Tara, thank you for making your wedding so much fun to document, and for your friendship and kindness during this season of your life. Lucas and I think the world of you two, and we wish you the absolute best in your new journey together!

Tara’s Garvan Gardens Bridal Portraits in Hot Springs, Arkansas

Tara’s Garvan Gardens Bridal Portraits in Hot Springs, Arkansas

Over a year ago, I sat down with a newly engaged and incredibly excited couple and smiled with them as they showed me the scrapbook Ryne made and talked about their plans to marry the following year. That day simultaneously seems like eternity ago and just yesterday, and it’s both surreal and wonderful to be able to say that they’re married now!!

Tara is adventurous, fun, and most importantly, desires to glorify God in all that she does. She’s the type of woman that you just know is going to make a wonderful wife, and Ryne is absolutely the perfect man to be her husband. I’ve grown to love Tara more and more over the past year, and I couldn’t have been more excited to witness her say “I do” this past weekend.

Over the summer, Tara and I met up for her Garvan Gardens Bridal Portraits in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and had a wonderful time exploring it’s beauty. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from our time together!

A Journey Campus Wedding in Jonesboro Arkansas | Cody & Alesha

A Journey Campus Wedding in Jonesboro Arkansas | Cody & Alesha

As she waited for the ceremony to begin, Alesha closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and focused on the music drifting from the sanctuary out into the hall. She thought about Cody and all they had been through, and she thought about the commitment she was going to make to him in just a few short moments.

Then, she linked arms with her father and walked down the aisle to meet her groom. Everything from their vows to the moment they were pronounced husband and wife was intentionally focused on honoring God through the covenant of marriage, and it was a beautiful and honest thing to witness.

Their ceremony was followed by a fun reception, filled with dancing, laughter, and lots of sweet treats. It was truly a celebration of life, love, and all of the blessings the Lord had poured on Cody and Alesha, and it was an joy to be a part of the occasion.

Cody and Alesha, thank you. From the bottom of my heart. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the two of you over the past few months, and Lucas and I wish you the absolute best in your future together. We hope these photographs will remain a special reminder of the love you share forever.
