Katie & Mac: The Destination Wedding

Hello everyone!

I had the immense pleasure of consulting for Katie and Mac and their January wedding in the Bahamas. We helped to choose the details, to design the tablescapes, put together welcome bags for their guests, and even provided sketches for their Bahamian vendors to ensure that Katie and Mac's vision was interpreted flawlessly!

Here are some of the amazing images captured by Carper Creative Photography of their beautiful destination wedding.

Featured Venue: Moss Mountain Farm

Hey everyone!

I've been on a bit of blogging hiatus lately, getting everything ready for some amazing upcoming Spring weddings! But I'm back today with a wonderful new Little Rock area venue for you all. I visited with the team at P. Allen Smith's garden home, Moss Mountain Farm, yesterday and was completely blown away.  It is without a doubt THE new luxury wedding venue in Arkansas.
While the home itself has been standing for many years, they have just recently decided to open the property to weddings! Not only is this beautiful property completely secluded, but it overlooks the Arkansas River, and has a variety of possible locations for your big day! Here are just a few images I captured during my visit there yesterday...
The front gate.

Central grassy area in the Rose Garden overlooking the Arkansas River. The PERFECT spot for your ceremony!

And just a couple of others from their website...

One of the great things about this location is that it is truly a working farm. They are able to provide you with a one of a kind dining experience with P. Allen Smith's signature "Garden to Table" meals using ingredients from his extensive gardens to create an incredible experience for your guests!

P. Allen Smith's Moss Mountain Farm is guaranteed to draw brides and grooms from all over the country who are looking for a lovely, picturesque location for their wedding day. Choose to say "I do" in the romantic rose garden, on the intimate back lawn, under the giant tree in the front of the home, or in their gorgeous, rustic barn. And there are even more options for your reception location! With so many different options, the perfect place for every bride and groom can be found at Moss Mountain Farm.

If you want a unique wedding that your guests will talk about for years to come, you should absolutely consider Moss Mountain Farm. Be one of the first to get married on their beautiful property! Call me today (479.414.4136) and I'll be happy to set up your tour and be by your side for the entire wedding planning process.
