Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Hollowell!

Katie & Tripp were married last night in one of the most fun weddings I've had the pleasure to be a part of. The fall decor was stunning, the food & service was spectacular, and the band was beyond entertaining!
Until we have some of the amazing wedding photos from Brooke Robinson Photography, I thought I'd share a few pre-wedding images...

Here are just a couple of my favorites of their engagement photos:For more, head on over to Brooke's blog.

It's wedding week for Katie & Tripp!

Katie & Tripp are getting married on Saturday at Saint Vincent dePaul Catholic Church in Rogers, Arkansas. The beautiful, fall reception will follow at Pinnacle Country Club. Until we have photos of the gorgeous wedding, I thought I'd share a sneak peak of their stunning, classic invitations from Sincerely Yours Paper, Inc.
Beautiful isn't it?

In addition to the usual contents of a wedding paper suite, Katie & Tripp chose to include a beautiful gesture for their closest family & friends, a "within the ribbons" card.
To read more about the "Within the Ribbons" cards, visit the Sincerely Yours blog today.

And stay tuned for more from Katie & Tripp's wedding in the coming weeks!

Meet Sloan & Tyler!

This Dallas couple will tie the knot on November 20th in Little Rock, Arkansas. I met with Sloan back in May for the first time and at that point they were planning a summer 2011 wedding. Soon after it was moved up, because they just couldn't wait that long!

Sloan and her sweet mom, Paula, have planned every detail and our team will simply come in during the week of the wedding to make sure everything runs smoothly for this great couple!

Until then, here are a few of their engagement photos from SoHo Photography in Conway.
With a couple this fun, their wedding is bound to be a blast! I cannot wait to see what Sloan and her mom have designed! Here's to November...

Alli & Ben's amazing Eureka Springs wedding!

This Boston couple are big fans of Faye Jones, the architect of Thorncrown Chapel, and chose to have a destination wedding in Eureka Springs so that they could be married in the amazing chapel that they had studied in their architecture courses in college. 86 of their closest family & friends flew into Arkansas from all over the country - Seattle, Baltimore, Memphis, & Boston just to name a few. This amazing family made our job easy. It was such a pleasure to work with them all to create an absolutely stunning wedding of rustic elegance!

Until the amazing professional photos from Hudson Photography are ready, I thought I'd share a few of my iPhone shots of the fantastic details.

We used a mixture of round and banquet tables each covered in beautiful gold lamour linens with Burlap runners from BBJ Linens...
Alli expressed her desire to have the centerpieces feel like a "collection of treasures". To accomplish this look, for months we shopped thrift stores, antique stores, and borrowed items from family and friends. The containers consisted of vintage sewing machine drawers, tea cups, milk glass vases, vintage tea tins, and much, much more.

The favors, CD's of beautiful Scottish music as a nod to their heritage and the Scottish themes woven into the entire wedding, were custom designed & created by the bride's sister & maid of honor...

One of the beautiful sewing machine drawers...
We filled the drawers with pave style arrangements consisting of hydrangeas, dahlias, ranunculus, roses, thistle, liatris, seeded eucalyptus, and other greens and fillers.

One of my favorite of their centerpiece containers...
Vintage brass tea pot found in a thrift store in Little Rock for only $2.00!

View from above of one of the sewing machine drawers....
Alli & her family found some amazing vintage tins that we sprinkled throughout the reception space...

The cake, from Eureka Sweets, was a beautiful, simple design that we perfectly accentuated with burgundy dahlias and set atop a vintage wooden bowl that we used as a cake stand...
The bar menu was written on a rustic chalk board and laid on the bar, topped with a small arrangement of blooms in a vintage tea tin...
And one of my favorite details ever.... {sorry for the blurry photo!}We created gorgeous table assignments on vintage windows and set them atop the guest book table. The table was finished with beautiful lanterns from Eventures and a set of vintage sewing machine drawers to act as the "card catcher".

I cannot wait to share what are sure to be absolutely amazing photos from Hudson Photography!

Meet Ashley & David

I began working with Ashley a couple of months ago for her wedding in February in Little Rock, Arkansas. Their wedding is going to be absolutely amazing! We're talking gorgeous flowers, stunning lighting, and amazing music throughout the evening.
Ashley's fiance, David, lives and works in Dallas, so they chose to have their engagement photos taken there by the uber talented Sarah Kate Photography. Here are just a couple of my favorites...
