Happy New Year to all of my Newly Weds!! ๐Ÿ™‚

And one newly wed in particular – Stephanie and Jim!!

Oh my gosh! This couple was so cute! I love it when my couples are really chill. When, of course they care about the dรฉcor and the details, but they care more about getting married. I loved working with these two, and I loved photographing their day.

As I was looking through their photos choosing which ones I wanted to use for the blog, I had a huge smile on my face looking through them. There were so many sweet moments. It’s been a minute since their wedding, so I was reminded of Stephanie’s smile when she was looking at Jim.ย And Jim’s goofiness with his groomsmen. I loved their vintage car dรฉcor everywhere and their swanky getaway ride! Not to mentionย the HIL-ARIOUS toasts that their friends and parents gave them. Their awesome play mix. All of their guests bustin’ a move at the reception. A wedding is made up of so many moments.ย A photo is a constant reminder that it happened, you didn’t dream it up, and that moment was real.

So, let’s do this! Here is Jim and Stephanie’s Wedding day at the Barn at Crawfordsville in Arkansas!

Jim’s first look. Aww!

These two decided on a traditional look. I would consider their wedding to be a really successful example of how a traditional look could/should work. They had a mingling cocktail hour. The weather was also great, so guests had a good time just hanging on the patio for a bit while we finished up pics. They also had a small wedding party and small family, so getting those shots after the ceremony literally took 15 minutes.

The hilarious toasts! There were too many pics to choose from here, so I just chose a couple!
