Reba & Grant — Paragould Backyard Wedding

Reba and Grant have become very near and dear to my heart. I met these two at Grant’s sister Katie’s wedding a bit over a year ago. Reba is the energetic and spunky side of the relationship and Grant is the more reserved, calm, and collected side. They’re the best of humans. :) I loved spending the wedding day with these two, but it was also half sad that it was the last photographic adventure that we would have for a little while.

Since rain always seems to follow Reba (which is good luck, right?), we had a bit of rain during this day too, but similarly to the engagement session and bridal session, the rain held off when it mattered and made for some cool weather and dynamic lighting. 👌

Without further ado, here is the beautiful wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Howe! ❤

Savanna & Austin Married!

Savanna and Austin’s wedding was not the most typical day, but it turned out beautifully and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. The ceremony was originally planned to be in the evening, but after seeing the forecast for an impending torrential evening downpour, friends and family took to the phones to notify all the guests about a ceremony time change. I have to say that it was splendid planning and execution!

I’ve known Savanna and Austin for a while, and they’ve always been some of the most cheerful, encouraging friends anyone could ask for. I’m excited to see where the future brings these two and I know wherever life takes them, they’ll be brightening people’s lives and turning frowns upsidown. :) Congratulations Savanna and Austin! ❤

Singing in the rain…what a way to finish a wonderful wedding. :)

Casey & Justin Married!

Even without spending a lot of time with Casey and Justin before their wedding day, it was so easy to see how much they respect and adore each other. This was truly a wonderful day and I’m excited to see what the future holds for these two.

The wedding was at Leachville’s Adams Estate, which is one of my favorite venues for its pretty gardens and architecture. Without further ado, here’s the abridged story of the day Casey & Justin got hitched. ❤

Dixie & Andrew Married!

There’s something really special about people willing to pursue the dreams that they have that aren’t just copies of what other people have done or what is normal, but pursuing what is in their heart. In this case I’m talking about weddings, and more specifically, Dixie and Andrew’s! Dixie’s dream for her wedding wasn’t anything close to traditional, but it felt as genuine and authentic to both of their personalities as could be, and I couldn’t really ask for anything better than that. :)

The wedding was in the backyard where Andrew grew up, their dog was a part of the ceremony (yess!), they fed each other popsicles instead of cake (well, in addition to), and had a killer first dance to the song and style of The Rockafeller Skank.

Dixie and Andrew are such kind and caring (and super smart) people and it was wonderful being able to spend the weekend with them in Dallas.

Here’s to Dixie and Andrew, to always making each other laugh, and to not taking formalities too seriously. :) I wish you guys the very best!

Holly & Preston – Southern Arkansas Church Elopement

Holly and Preston tied the knot at a pretty church that Holly fell in love with after driving past it one day. It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon for an elopement in this cute little church with Holly and Preston and a few of their closest family members who couldn’t be talked out of missing this. :) Congratulations you two!

Lydia & Jake – Lebanon TN Wedding at the Mills

Starting off this year of weddings for me are none other than Lydia and Jake. Lydia has been a wonderful friend for so many years and has always been someone that I’ve looked up to. So this whole getting married thing was extra exciting for me too. :) Jake and Lydia make such a wonderful couple and I’m very proud to be able to document and tell the story of that one brisk day in March when Jake and Lydia became Mr. and Mrs.

The wedding was at The Mills, a cute rustic venue in Lebanon, TN. And the day went something like this…

Tori & Daniel Married!

Tori and Daniel are married! I had the greatest of rainy days spent in Memphis getting these two hitched. Tori and Daniel’s family and friends were what some would call a hoot (or a hout? ahhhh bad jokes), so we had the most wonderful of times. I’m super excited for these two and can’t wait to see what new adventures life will throw their way next as Mr. and Mrs.!

Congrats to the Houtrouws! ❤

Gotta love a snowy NYE wedding exit. 😄
