Barn at the Springs Wedding // Hayden + Savannah by April Walsh

Savannah, what do you love most about Hayden? I love how Hayden can always make me enjoy life. He is funny and easy going. I tend to get stressed easily and he is quick to make me laugh and relax.


Hayden, what do you love most about Savannah? Hayden said he everything about me. Haha! Really though, he says he likes my driven personality. I guess I am a go getter!


We were both raised in Fayetteville, High school sweethearts. Both went to U of A. I teach 2nd grade and he is a Walmart supplier for Kimberly Clark.


What memory stands out most to you from your wedding day? Our 11 minute ceremony. With rain threatening a down pour at any second we were still determined to get married outside. The ceremony was so fast but beyond perfect! Sweet and simple like us! And thankfully the rain held off until after cocktail hour.


Advice for future couples? Invite all your friends!! It makes the whole thing so much more exciting celebrating with all those you love!

Hayden said soak up every minute! It goes by SO fast!

How was your experience with me? Beyond amazing!! You was everything we hoped for and more. From the beginning you were easy to work with and quickly became a friend! You helped make us feel comfortable and excited to take pictures! Our engagement pictures and wedding pictures are something we will cherish forever and we are so grateful for your work!

Hilltop Elopement // Todd + Taylor by April Walsh

Todd and Taylor decided to have a small ceremony on the hilltop overlooking his grandmother’s house. Taylor wore her grandmother’s wedding dress from the 1920’s and the entire day was all about family. Everyone was so emotional all day and when Taylor read vows to Todd’s daughter, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Make your day your own and do what makes you happy.

Todd, What do you love most about Taylor?

“I love the way that you inspire me to be the best version of myself that I can be.”

Taylor, What do you love most about Todd?

“What a hard question! There is a lot to love in someone like Todd. He is kind hearted and I’ve never met a man so willing to put others needs before himself. He is truly selfless and that is a beautiful quality! From day one, that was the biggest stand-out characteristic.”

What memory stands out most to you from your wedding day?

The venue stands out the most to both of us!! What an incredible view of Arkansas. Not only was it a special location for my husband, but also my husband’s daughter and that was important to me.

Advice for future couples?

Do what you want how you want. Have the wedding that you and your spouse want to have, not what will please everyone else. If you are concerned with budget, be frugal. There is no handbook of life that says you have to cater to your guests needs. Talk about A LOT OF PRESSURE. It’s about you and your spouse and maybe that means getting married on top of a hill with no WiFi, limited friends, immediate family, and maybe you are only eating cake! Who cares? Do you!

How was your experience with April?

Our experience with April was great! April was attentive and creative. She was very professional and we had zero worries about trusting her to capture one of the most special days of our lives.
