We loved heading to Jonesboro, Arkansas to celebrate Jacob and Hannah's marriage.
These two love birds met at Evangel University in Springfield, MO but tied the knot in Hannah's hometown.
As you can see below, this wedding was BEAUTIFUL.
Let's start with the first look. QUE THE TEARS. We had 3 photographers to document and lets just say, our allergies were acting up. Jacob had the perfect reaction to seeing his beautiful bride. I highly recommend first looks. Its a special moment to just be together before the chaos of the rest of the day kicks in.
Now, Let's talk about the Venue - Harmony Gardens. This place was a DREAM. The ceremony was held outside in a beautiful garden with a pergola big enough to fit the officiant, bride and groom with the wedding party lined up just outside of it. If you're in the Jonesboro area. We HIGHLY recommend.
The officiant, Bethany Strawn did an excellent job. I especially loved the tying of 3 strands referencing Ephesians 4:12 in place of unity candles. It was a beautiful take-a-way that the couple can hang in their homes.
The reception was held in a Greenhouse which was equally as beautiful as the outdoor garden. Not very often do we choose to do photos indoors, but this beautiful indoor space had beautiful lighting and kept us out of the harsh sunlight and wind. It was perfectly decorated by Hannah's Mom and friends. The talents of their support systems shined in this Wedding. The first dance song was sang beautiful by Jacob's sister - Haylea Crews. Family members made all of the bouquets, flower crowns and boutonnieres and Jacob's mom made all of the cupcakes and cake. She owns Sweet Sensations out of Bolivar, MO.
Just delicious! You can find her on facebook @Sweet Sensations.
This will go down as one of the most fun receptions we have photographed to date. There was a breakout dance between Hannah and Her dad that had the whole guest list cheering and chanting.
Jacob and Hannah, words do not do your wedding justice. THANK YOU for letting us help tell your love story.
