I wish all the happiness in the world to Morgan & Chase! It has been so much fun getting to know this awesome couple over the past year, we bonded over coffee, favorite movies, music, & a rainy hike out at Petit Jean Mountain for their lovely engagement photos. And though, like every wedding, there were challenges along the way when the wedding day finally came it was so full of joy and love.
Morgan really wanted a non-traditional wedding dress (her first choice was black, I love it!) but, this blush pink gown couldn’t have been more perfect. While her bridal party was helping her into her dress, the theme from Beauty & the Beast started playing and everyone just lost it!
Her unique bridal bouquet was created with vintage brooches passed down from the women in her family. I love how she incorporated sentimental & vintage touches into her look while still keeping it elegant and timeless.
Their wedding reception welcome table featured custom signs (pet nicknames also represented!) and a really cute timeline of their love story
Although Morgan eventually decided on the blush wedding gown instead of black, she still incorporated black lace in her table decor, wedding cake, and her bridal party’s dresses. Seriously, the flower girls were feeling so chic in their black lace & tulle.
Whether it’s just the couple & me or the whole world is watching, the First Looks are always incredibly special and emotional. Upon seeing Chase’s stunned reaction, Morgan said, “that’s the picture every bride wants” and “my face hurt from smiling so much!” I’m sure many brides can relate!
Happily ever after indeed, this is fairytale stuff here, ya’ll! This was my first time photographing a wedding at St. Joseph’s Church in Conway, AR and I was so struck by this place! The pastel blues, golds, and reds of this ornate church ceiling were such a beautiful background for this moving wedding ceremony.
Chase & Morgan’s guestbook was a memory frame filled with little wooden hearts signed by their guests. There were lots of natural wood & DIY type details included in their decor. They are both nature lovers & Chase even handmade a ring box for his bride to be with wood he gathered from one of their hikes (awww) so it was a perfect fit for their style & story.
That “I just married my best friend” victory dance! A confident ring bearer taking his job just the right amount of serious. Throughout the day the couple shared a few special gifts with each other but, also with their best friends & family. The guys are showing off their new sunglasses below.
