I’m so excited for this blog post! I wanted to blog it sooner but my entire work time line was a bit behind because of the crazy storms.
Erin and Daniel were married at the very unique and fun East Square Plaza in downtown Fayetteville. I adored how close, relaxed, and fun-loving both of these families were! It seemed like every one was out on the dance floor, having a blast, and celebrating the happy couple.
I had, as always, such a hard time picking out which images I wanted to share.
That’s Bo, Erin’s awesome make-up artist.
I loved this belt. It was a serious, getting down to business belt!!
Gorgeous shoes, right?!
And these bridesmaid’s shoes?? Amazing.
It was so hilarious getting into the dress. Erin’s expressions were priceless.
I love, love, love this image!!!
The bridal bouquet was off by itself, chilling in a water bottle, as Erin got ready.
I can not stress enough how much I love doing First Looks. It’s such a great idea
and a chance to spend a few moments together without all the eyes of the wedding guests.
I just adore the look of anticipation Daniel is wearing.
See the girl in the green off to the left? That’s Erin’s sister and her reactions to the First Look made me giggle.
Giving away his baby!
Husband and wife!!
Sheets, plates, and glasses. Who would have thought that they would make
the perfect table cloths and dessert holders?
Pies and cupcakes instead of cake. Love this idea! It’s so fun and so casual but oh so cute.
The little heart crust pieces are my favorites.
Can’t you feel the love?
Thank you so much, you two, for allowing me to be part of your special day!!

This little guy’s mommy contacted me when he was a five weeks old, so he was so much more alert than a typical newborn. I explained that we probably wouldn’t get the super sleepy, curly shots of a baby ten days or younger, but that we would still have a fun time.
And we did. We got some adorable shots of him by himself, but, for me, it is the family shots that steal the show!
I really love this more relaxed, lifestyle approach to a slightly older baby session. Be on the look out for a future casting call
so I can try out a few ideas I have in my head!

I love how much in love this couple is with each other. It’s really stinkin’ adorable. I love how calm and cool Arissa was up until the last minute even in the face of the day running a bit behind. I love that Davey was super nervous the closer it got to go time. Most of all, I love the way they both light up when the other enters the room. It’s so sweet.
I see something old…
and some pretty sparkly things.
Her flowers were so, so gorgeous! I loved all the different textures, colors, and shapes to the them.
The guys were hanging out in the chapel after what I hear were some intense games of ping pong.
This is about the time she was starting to get nervous.
I’m sort of jealous. Doesn’t that look so relaxing? I want someone to do my make-up and put on my lotion. Even if I’m just hanging out at the house. Actually, I just need someone who does make-up this well because the girls like to put lotion on my legs, do my hair, and put on my make-up all the time! It just never quite looks the same….
The pearls around her neck were her gift from Davey. I think they add such an elegant touch!
Waiting in the wings before the ceremony.
I love, love, love how happy and excited she looks!!
Husband and wife!!
Stunning couple, yes?
I cracked up at the little doe and buck.
And they lived happily ever after.
