A Garvan Gardens Intimate Wedding

African american bride and groom loving each other during their Garven gardens Hot Springs wedding


In the picturesque Ouachita Mountains in Hot Springs, Arkansas, a gorgeous Garvan Gardens intimate wedding occurred. The weather was perfect on this warm sunny afternoon. Tevin and Tysha arrived to a chorus of camera clicks from this thrilled Arkansas Wedding Photographer. Additionally, I am so happy to celebrate the best day of their lives with them!

Celebration and laughter from a small group of Tevin and Tysha’s family and friends rang throughout the Rose Gardens, prior to ceremony time. Tysha was nervous about walking to her groom. She wanted everything to go perfectly. Tevin was excited to see his bride. The groom’s buttoned his jacket. Lastly, the bride finished last minute makeup touchups. The time has arrived for Tysha to proceed to the Rose Garden. Escorted by her stepfather across the lawns of Garvan Gardens, Tysha, absolutely glowed in her gorgeous fitted gown from the Bridal Cottage. And her groom just smiled and amazement as she walked toward him.

The romance of the perfectly manicured flowers around the arch provided the perfect backdrop for Tevin and Tysha’s ceremony. After the ceremony, we moved into portrait time using the various gardens as our backdrop. Portrait time came to a close, and the couple enjoyed a catered lunch in Hot Springs. Surrounded by friends and family, their life together as husband and wife began. I am thrilled I was able to document their big day and I can not wait to see where life takes them!
