Katrina + Andrew. I will be forever grateful and so honored that I was there to capture such a romantic, whimsical woodland wedding at Anthony Chapel in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Everything from the handmade hoops with florals attached that the bridesmaids held, the beautiful dress designed by Sarah Seven purchased by Katrina’s lovely grandmother, to the amazing food catered by a close family friend from Texas, was an absolute dream. It was all so beautiful and perfect in every way.
Family members and closest friends traveled from all over to witness Katrina and Andrew say “I do”. The number one thing that stood out to me the most were the co-officiants, Dusty and Cecily Breeding, who traveled from California to perform the ceremony. They have played a huge role in Katrina and Andrew’s relationship – mentoring them, guiding them, teaching them how to be a team. They spoke so beautifully during the ceremony about marriage. I may or may not have cried the entire time.
Once we returned back to the Airbnb (a huge, gorgeous lake house in the middle of nowhere Hot Springs, Arkansas) Katrina and Andrew had their first dance as a married couple, in front of all their closest loved ones. The best man, maid of honor and the father of the bride all had a moment to toast the bride and groom. They each spoke so highly of them, and said some beautiful things about their relationship. I also may or may not have cried during the speeches.
Needless to say, I am so very thankful to have met Katrina and Andrew. They have such warm hearts and kind souls.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this beautiful destination wedding from the Anthony Chapel at Garvan Woodland Gardens.
