Meredith and John-Michael’s wedding was a fabulous mix of rustic, beautiful, laid back and just plain fun! The ceremony took place at Fellowship Bible in West Little Rock and the reception followed at Wildwood Park. Here are a few of my favorite details, portraits and moments from the day. Stay tuned tomorrow for round two of Meredith and John-Michael’s wedding day portraits!

Meredith and John-Michael decided to have a first look. I always encourage my clients to do this since it allows more time for your couple portraits AND cuts down on the time you’ll spend doing formal family portraits. Meredith and John-Michael spent a few private moments together before Meredith gave her groom his gift, a custom embossed family bible, and then we began shooting portraits.

How gorgeous is this wedding party?? The entrance at Fellowship Bible was a fantastic location for some casual group portraits.

Meredith returned her purity ring to her father during the ceremony. It was a very touching moment between father and daughter.

Rachel Haynes did an amazing job at coordination and Central Arkansas Entertainment kept the party going strong all night long. The reception was the perfect balance of tradition, unique details and a party on the dance floor.
