I’m bad at social media. It’s just a fact. But there’s a loooot more to it than not knowing what to post or when to post or what to say or how to be genuine still doing whatever the algorithm wants – as if all of that wasn’t problem enough. Do you want the truth […]

When I think of what an iconic fall Arkansas wedding would look like, I think emerald greens, crimson reds, burnt oranges, and a venue that showcases all of the natural beauty Arkansas has to offer. Well the Burt wedding had all of that and more. With a mid-day ceremony inside the Mildred B Cooper Chapel […]

The room is silent as she makes her way up the aisle. His back is turned, but he knows she’s coming. Her dress gets fluffed out, the veil lays perfectly, the lighting is magical, but we all know that he won’t see any of that. He’s going to see her face. Her beauty. Love reflecting […]

The ease in which Morgan and Zach interact with each other is truly something special. They met with me at Wilson Park in Fayetteville for their engagement session and it was immediately obvious to me how comfortable they are together. When you find that person you can be fully yourself with, it is only natural […]

Imagine this: you’re speed walking through Epcot trying to get in line to meet Aurora before the rest of the crowds line up when you pass by familiar faces. Like stop you in your tracks, can’t believe I just ran into you here, Disney magic is REAL. Ok, ok, it’s not quite THAT dramatic since […]

Is it weird to say that people can have things in common with buildings? Because between knowing just a small snippet of Danielle & Elliott’s story and reading the history of Cooper Memorial Chapel – they are both testaments of great faith.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll shout it from the rooftops every chance I get – the most important aspect of a wedding is the couple and their love. I knew from the moment I met Emily that her and Derrick’s Sassafras Springs Vineyard wedding would be exactly the embodiment of this motto. Emily was […]
