Villa Marre Wedding Part II: Bree and Shanti

Here’s part two of Bree and Shanti’s wedding at The Villa Marre. See part one here. First up, the beautiful ceremony photos. This was a ceremony full of laughter and tears, and so many sweet moments to treasure. From Bree reaching out to brush a tear from Shanti’s face, to the kiss on Shanti’s forehead at the end of the ceremony … I wish they all could be this way. After the ceremony, Bree and Shanti did something awesome. Well, […]

Wedding at Chopsticks International Center: Amy and Matthew

Amy and Matthew’s wedding is an example of the trend I have noticed lately, where couples are having smaller, more intimate weddings. There is still a great amount of attention given to detail, and these couples still expect the same (or often, a higher) level of service and quality. Amy and Matthew had a small wedding at Chopsticks International Center in Jacksonville. They didn’t go overboard on decorations, but they took home an amazing album and a gorgeous wall art […]

When Lauren emailed me to say they had found a vintage Model T for their wedding, I was thinking “Yes yes yes!” The couple wanted beautiful photos together incorporating some of the architecture of the downtown area, but their ceremony time was in the evening. They made an excellent choice: to see each other before the wedding, thereby adding tons more time for portraits without keeping their guests waiting during the reception.

Which was a good thing. You wouldn’t have wanted to miss one moment of the reception. With Central Arkansas Entertainment’s Joe Snell as DJ, everyone had a blast. Adding to the fun was a photo booth, also from Central Arkansas Entertainment, along with lots of photo booth props, some brought by Alex and Lauren and some belonging to the photo booth.

Amber and Jeff were married November 5 at First Baptist Church of Little Rock. It has been delightful getting to know this couple and being a part of their wedding. Their wedding was such a celebration of their relationship with God and with one another!

Wedding Dress

I actually enjoy it when we can't get the now-traditional photo of a dress hung in a window or with some would-be-elegant background. It allows me to do something more creative. I love having the clock in this photo! We are always keeping an eye on the time as it ticks down to the moment of the ceremony.

Bride getting makeup done

Amber has her makeup done in the bride's room at First Baptist Church.

Custom designed guest book

I designed this guest book for the couple with photos from their engagement session. I loved their engagement session and was so happy they decided to use the photos for a keepsake book like this.

Bridal flowers and jewelry

Amber's bouquet incorporated some of her grandmother's jewelry.

Ring bearer

Lots of children in this wedding. Cary captured this image of one of the ring bearers getting ready.

Wedding Ceremony

I love the look on Jeff's face as he sees her coming down the aisle towards him. The moment has arrived!

Flower girl

You know I couldn't resist this image of the flower girl yawning! What child hasn't been there, when participating in grown-up endeavors such as weddings?

Little details: the decoration on the cake echoes the set of glasses and cake server/knife that Amber and Jeff had for their wedding.

Wedding rings

Most of the arrangements contained beautiful in-season wildflowers, so I chose one of those to showcase the rings.

Going away with streamers

These streamers make such a great photo, and they were cleaned up in mere seconds.

I love it when a bride is willing to be adventurous even with her bridal session! We not only took advantage of the beautiful afternoon light at the Albert Pike Hotel, we also went across the street to the Masonic Temple, and Lauren brought cowboy boots, sneakers, bike shoes and a UCA hat to liven things up.

Lauren and Alex were married yesterday at the Albert Pike Hotel in downtown Little Rock. I can’t wait to share some of their beautiful wedding photos with you! Meanwhile, feast on these lovely bridals from my bridal session with Lauren back in September.
