The Portfolio Building Workshop round two was so incredibly dreamy!! This Workshop was greatly inspired by the classic romance of a southern charm wedding! I wanted to incorporate Pretty Old Stuff NWA‘s stunning blue and white China to compliment the soft white, green, and shades of blue color palette. Ollie Marie’s kept the floral designs […]

This day, where do I even begin!? There were so many things that I loved about Morgan and Christian’s wedding day! The day began in the classic 1930s bridal suite house at The Ballroom At I Street in Bentonville. Laughter, stories, giggles, and pure joy echoed through the house as the bridal party finished getting […]

I have forgotten just how much I adore shooting at The Ballroom At I Street in Bentonville, Arkansas! The clean and bright white ballroom is the perfect simplistic backdrop to create stunning portraits. I love the plantation feel of the getting ready house, and how it compliments the courtyard so well! Not to mention the […]

Now that she is officially a MRS, I can FINALLY share Lauren’s bridal session!! I’ve been dying to get these out into the world since the day I took them – I even edited and put the blog post together long before I could post because I was so excited to share them! The moment […]

This wedding was so FUN!! Alek and Shannan were a #covidcouple that had to completely change their wedding day plans because of the pandemic restrictions. Their original wedding day at Kindred North got moved to an intimate ceremony with family and a socially distance parking lot “reception” of a few close friends congratulating them. Because […]

You may have seen my recent post “Benefits Of A Day-Of Wedding Coordinator” by Elizabeth Northrop of Kindred Blooms and wondered to yourself, what’s the difference of a day-of coordinator and a wedding planner? Well today, Britt Jones of Britt Jones Co. Weddings is here to give us a little insight into those differences! As an […]

I have to confess something. I have a deep love for first looks on weddings days. Which is actually pretty ironic coming from the girl that didn’t have a first look at her own wedding. That was one of the only things that my husband requested of our wedding day. I tried to talk him […]

I get asked ALL the time from brides if a wedding coordinator is really necessary or worth the extra money, and I will always say a big loud YES!! Having a day-of coordinator that was willing to also come to my rehearsal dinner (be sure to ask if you’re potential day-of coordinator does this because […]

I knew the moment I read Dylan and Krista’s “getting to know you” questionnaire that I would love this couple! At our very first meeting at Starbucks, we talked for hours and almost forgot that we also needed to go take their engagement photos before the rain rolled in for the evening. From their engagement […]
