Mary Shannon & Aaron: The First Look

Hey Everyone!

Today is my favorite day of Mary Shannon & Aaron's features. It's finally time to share their First Look! We were able to get special permission for them to use the wine cellar at the Capital Hotel in downtown Little Rock. It was a beautiful backdrop for this beautiful couple's first look...

Mary Shannon & Aaron: The Dress

Hey everyone!

Today I'm sharing an extra special moment from Mary Shannon & Aaron's reception. To honor her grandmother and surprise her grandfather, the bride planned to change into her grandmother's wedding gown (which she had shortened) during the reception and share a dance with her grandfather. So when it was time, we stole Mary Shannon away to make the change and when she returned in her grandmother's dress the band played a song by one of her grandfather's favorite artists, Frank Sinatra, and they shared a very special dance...

Incorporating moments like this into your wedding day are what makes it truly yours. It was absolutely one of a kind and Eli Murray captured it so beautifully!

Don't miss tomorrow! It's my favorite feature of Mary Shannon and Aaron's wedding and you don't want to miss it: Their First Look. Trust me, come back...

Mary Shannon & Aaron: The Reception

Hello again!

I'm back today with Mary Shannon & Aaron's reception. I think it's safe to say everyone at their wedding had a blast! The band was incredible, the dance floor was absolutely packed, the food was delicious, and hundreds of their friends and family were still there at the end of the night to send off the bride and groom. All in all, it was fabulous! Enjoy these details and moments from their reception captured by Eli Murray Photography...

The bridal all party rode on the vintage Trolley from the ceremony to the reception...

Now just a few of the reception details...
