Haley, What do you love most about Nick? That’s so tough!! I think just how much fun we have together. We’ve been best friends since 7th grade, but he just makes the day to day mundane things so fun. He’s always trying to find different ways to make me laugh.

Nick, What do you love most about Haley? I love that I can be completely myself around her and how much fun we have doing random little things. She just makes me so happy every single day.

What memory stands out most to you from your wedding day? I think what stands out the most was our first look. We both remember being so nervous but so excited and the minute we saw each other those nerves completely went away and the rest of the day was just full of excitement. I was really hesitant to do a first look because I wanted the first time he saw me to be walking down the aisle, but the first look didn’t take away from that at all!

Advice for future couples? Literally everyone says this but take time to focus on all of the people around you who are there loving and supporting you, and your spouse, and to just soak the day in because it goes by so fast. Also, anytime you can sneak away just the two of you even if just for a few minutes, do it!

How was your experience with me? April was seriously amazing, my best choice for the whole wedding!! She just made us and our families and friends feel so comfortable and at ease. She made the day go by so smoothly and remembered all of the pictures that we wanted. The pictures are absolutely stunning and even better than I could have imagined!

Matt Lane Farm Wedding // Brad + Allie's Snowy Vows by April Walsh

It’s odd to think about this freezing January wedding when it’s so steamy and sun outside my window right now. I can’t wait to share all of Brad and Allie’s snow filled big day. The energy was infectious all day and they had one of the sweetest first look’s I’ve ever had the pleasure to capture. As we were taking portraits, we kept pretending we were somewhere on a hot beach with our toes in the sand ha! Whatever we had to do to stay warm, we knew the photos would be worth it. Here are a few other vendor’s who helped make the day so wonderful:

Florals: Zuzu’s Petals

Wedding Gown: Low’s Bridal. Designer was L’amour.

The bride’s sister actually designed and made all my stationary, so that was super special to her.

Wedding Rings and Jewelry- Blakeman’s

The groomsmen got all of their suits from Dillard’s, but Brad’s suit was a custom made Italian suit from Hubbard’s.

Bridesmaid Dresses- Low’s Bridal and Formal

Videographer- 3R Productions

Catering- The Event Group

Wedding cake was made by Shelby Lynn’s Cake Shoppe. Brad has a dream about what it would look like and they turned that into a perfect reality. They had three different flavors and not a single slice was left at the end of the night.

Live Music- Something Blue.

Kindred Barn Wedding // Dawson + Kailey // Mulberry, Arkansas by April Walsh

Dawson first reached out to me to capture the moment he was proposing to Kailey. We hiked to the Yellow Rock Overlook at Devil’s Den and arrived just at sunset for the most magical lighting. For their engagements we ran around the tennis courts and pushed each other into the pool. When I arrived at Kindred Barn on the morning of their wedding, the clouds were just rolling in and made that amazing rain smell all in the air (am I the only one that loves that smell?) The rain stayed away all day though and the whole day flowed seamlessly. They both cried, I cried, everyone cried. I had a hard time saying good bye at the end of the night and hugged them both so tight.

Matthew + Kasey // Floral Filled Wedding at The Ravington by April Walsh

I always say my couples are the best and that’s because they truly are. Matthew and Kasey are no exception. When we first met, we realized we were both shopping for houses in the same neighborhood and shared a love for puppies and snorting when we laugh too hard ha! Their big day was a sticky hot August day, and Kasey is a little sex pot who only made the day hotter. I loved all of the florals that surrounded their day and the non-stop giggles between the bride and groom all day.

Carson + Sarah // Sunny Winter Wedding at Barn at the Springs by April Walsh

Carson and Sarah are friends turned high school sweethearts. They both grew up with my younger brother, and we didn’t put it together until we met for coffee before the big day! They decided to get married in January because of both of their busy schedules, but the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for us that day. Carson and Sarah’s love shined through in the tender way they were with each other all day long. And in their friends faces who got to spend it with them. Take a peek at their sun filled day and one of the best dance floors I’ve ever been apart of!
