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!

Kindred North Wedding // Logan + Amanda by April Walsh

Logan and Amanda are one of those couples that you meet and know right away that they’re perfect for each other. All day Amanda kept stopping everyone one and asking “Are you making memories?” A wedding day can go by so quickly and it was so important to them that everyone stop and be present. The decor for their big day was simple and beautiful and fun. Amanda even surprised Logan with a trick first look with her brother in a wedding dress to loosen the nerves! Take a peek at these beautiful souls and their palpable love for one another.

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!

Colorful Fall Wedding at Cold Springs Events // Josh + Amber by April Walsh

These two got married in Little Rock on the most perfect fall day. The autumn colors stuck around longer than normal this year, and we really got the peak colors for their big day. Amber is a beauty (inside and out), and we had an immediate connection. The emotion that I felt and documented between Josh and Amber brought me front and center to the realization of why I love photographing weddings so much. Even after a very long day, I didn’t want to leave them and go home at the end of the night ha!

Kindred Barn Personal Family Wedding // Jesse + Hannah by April Walsh

Jesse and Hannah are two of the most warm and welcoming people you will ever meet. They decided to tie the knot at Kindred Barn in Mulberry, on their family’s property. Their first look was in the same woods outside her grandmother’s house where they shared their first kiss. Hannah’s dad made and bottled the wine himself for their guests. Hannah sang Jesse’s favorite song herself after their first dance. Every single detail was so personal and thoughtful, and I can’t wait to share it all.
