I was so excited when Ashley and Jake won second place in the “She Said Yes” Contest. I was even more excited when they booked me for their wedding, and still more excited when I photographed their engagement session and got to work with them. They were a joy to photograph!
The couple were married October 1st at the Terry House in Little Rock, and their wedding was all I had expected, and then some. It’s really wonderful when a couple has a wedding that fits their personalities so well. From the beautiful dress to the party at the end, it was a joy just to be around this couple!
Wedding planner Charlotte French of Plan-It – Design-It did a wonderful job creating an atmosphere that was both lovely and elegant, while being laid-back and natural like this wonderful couple! Joe Snell of Central Arkansas Entertainment got the party started (and WOW, did it get started!) The Pontchartrain Room at Cajun’s Wharf was the perfect place for a reception … I loved how their glasses fit in perfectly with the wedding decorations!
Another thing I really like: good photos of the groom! The bride shouldn’t be the only one who is captured looking their best on the wedding day. (I still love looking at photos of my own handsome groom.) Cary shot this one of Jake:
The shoes were perfection in the way they echoed the design of the dress!
Keeping an eye on the Razorback game while getting ready.
This is the “magic garter.” It had been in two weddings besides Ashley and Jake’s and had worked twice! We’ll see if it keeps up the winning streak.
Still keeping an eye on those Hogs (via the smart phone) …
And … they won! Isn’t there a tradition about it being good luck for the Hogs to win on your wedding day?
