Paige and Dylan
In the quiet town of Greenwood, Arkansas, The Loft at Stone Oak, a gorgeous venue set in natural surroundings nestled in the valley of the Ozark Mountains. On a radiant October day, Paige and Dylan arrived to a chorus of camera clicks from this thrilled Northwest Arkansas Photographer. I was excited to second shoot with my friend Kim Christopher, to celebrate the best day of this couple’s lives.
Getting Ready and the Ceremony
The morning was all celebration and laughter. Decked out in cream-colored robes, the bride and her bridesmaids smiled and shared stories and tears of joy. Meanwhile, the groom and his groomsmen were laughing and telling jokes with each other while also taking shots of their favorite liquor. When the last boutonniere was pinned and the last curl was hairsprayed, the time had arrived to head to the First Look.
As Dylan turned around after Paige tapped him on his shoulder, he was so overcome with emotion that they hugged and embraced each other for quite a while. They exchanged gifts with each other and then it was time for the ceremony. Escorted by her father down the aisle of a beautifully lined sidewalk of pampas grass, Paige, in her gorgeous lace wedding gown, absolutely glowed. And her groom could only smile ear to ear as she proceeded down the aisle.
Under the expert guidance of the wedding coordinator Blessed 4 Events, the talented vendors painted a gorgeous fall-themed scene. Pampas grass, burgandy florals, and pumpkins decorated the wedding day and the neutral color palette with pops of color certainly complimented the natural tones of the venue.
Surrounded by family and friends and with the delicious catering wafting throught the room, the festivities carried on well into the night. The toasts from Paige and Dylan’s fathers were touching. And celebration was added on top of celebration as their was a conga line and even a limbo competition!
As the party came to a close, the crowd cheered and Paige and Dylan made their final exit under sparklers. Surrounded by friends and family, their life together as husband and wife began. I was thrilled to be able to document this day with Kim and I can’t wait to see where life takes them! chest out some of the photos from their breathtaking Loft at Stone Oak wedding and let me know which ones you love best in the comments!
