Melissa's Lovely Bridal Portraits

Hello everyone!

We have had a busy October at Finishing Touch and I am so excited to have the first of our October weddings to share with you today!

Melissa & Drew were married on October 5th at Cooper Memorial Chapel in Bella Vista with a fabulous reception to follow at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. This couple wanted to treat their guests right! And they did just that with welcome bags in their hotel rooms (90% of their guests came from out of state), a wonderful rehearsal dinner, and a wedding day full of excitement, great food, and fun! Today I'm going to start by sharing Melissa's beautiful bridal portraits! After a slight change of plans due to rain, these were shot by Hudson Photography just before the First Look at 21C Museum Hotel.

Hello again!

Meredith Melody snuck away with our bride & groom for just a few moments during the reception to capture some sunset portraits during the best time of day. Here are the beautiful results...

And because it is so gorgeous, I just have to share it one more time. My absolute favorite image of the day: the tree portrait...

Thank you again to Meredith Melody for the beautiful images of DeMee & Adam's wedding. And thank you to DeMee & Adam for allowing us to be a part of their wedding. It was a pleasure from beginning to end!

DeMee & Adam: The Details

Hey everyone!

This week I'm so excited to share DeMee & Adam's wedding from just 2 weeks ago. They were married in a sweet ceremony in the bride's hometown of Prattsville, Arkansas with the Country Club reception in neighboring Sheridan, Arkansas. This couple is one of the nicest, most down to earth I've ever had the pleasure of working with! And I'm thrilled with the way Meredith Melody captured their day. Today, enjoy the details...
love this unique angle on the dress shot.

Hannah & Justin: The Artist

Hey everyone!

The most wonderful detail from Hannah & Justin's wedding was the on site artist who painted their First Dance as they were on the dance floor. He was amazingly talented, and I adore this for EVERY single bride and groom. A one of a kind piece of art to remember your wedding day is priceless. I for one would love this hanging in my home!
Isn't it just gorgeous?! Don't forget about these special details for your wedding day.
