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 […]
