Ashley + Terik | Barn at the Springs Wedding PhotographerJanuary 18, 2018

We can’t find the right words to describe how much we loved Ashley and Terik’s wedding at Barn at the Springs. The barn was buzzing with a host of loved ones helping them to make the barn look just perfect for the celebration. The ceremony was set to be outdoors initially but changed to indoors at the last minute due to a rainstorm moving in. We wouldn’t have changed a thing though because everything turned out just right! Everyone pitched in to set the ceremony up inside and make it look absolutely magical as Ashley and Terik prepared for the day. Barn at the Springs Wedding Photographer

Ashley was preparing in the charming Bridal suite at the barn, surrounded by her sweet Bridesmaids, Mother and future Mother in-law. She donned her contagious smile the entire time even with the threat of rain and having to make a few last minute changes to the ceremony setup. There was a lot of genuine laughter and happy memories being made in that little room. We absolutely adored how much care went into making sure even the smallest details were so carefully laid out for Ashley, from her dress to the earrings that were lent to her for the day. We loved how fun everyone enjoyed the moment as they prepared for the day, that time can often be so stressful but they seemed to have an absolute blast! Barn at the Springs Wedding Photographer

Ashley’s first look with her Dad could have brought anyone to tears. It was so special to witness an often overlooked moment of a Dad seeing his daughter for the final time before she makes her walk down the aisle to change her name. I think Ashley’s Dad was left breathless when he finally saw her in her dress and veil…as a Bride! They shared some happy tears and endless smiles. Barn at the Springs Wedding Photographer

Terik and his guys worked hard to make sure the ceremony set up was perfectly in place before they retreated to the Groom’s suite. There were words of well wishes, lots of laughter and tons of excitement for the rest of the day. We loved that Terik’s Grandpa, who was also his best man, helped him prepare for the day. Terik’s Mother also gave Terik the final inspection and relished in the moments before he was to see his Bride for the first time. 

Terik and Ashley’s first look was so intimate and sweet. They were of course all smiles and nervous anticipation for the moment they finally got to lay eyes on one another. We really loved the way Terik paused and took in the whole sight of his Bride and adored each detail before they moved in for a hug. The two took a little walk and enjoyed a few quiet moments before the day moved forward to the ceremony. 

The ceremony was so perfect! The details of the décor were perfect, the wedding party looked amazing and the guests were absorbed in each precious moment of the ceremony. In perfect timing, the rainstorm began and made a beautiful and soothing background for the entire event. We hear rain is good luck so Ashley and Terik must be extra lucky based on the timing! One of the Groomsman played the guitar and sang a special song for the couple before they shared their first kiss as Husband and Wife which was absolutely beautiful. Barn at the Springs Wedding Photographer

The reception was nothing short of amazing! They had the most fun dessert bar with homemade hand pies that were made by the family, an adorable coffee and cocoa station and of course all they best food. There were some super sweet toasts, lots of fun in the photo booth and so many memories made. We adored the first dance and how the rest of the party disappeared just  for a few moments as they swayed. Of course as photographers, we really loved how willing Ashley and Terik were to brave the rain for a fun photo opportunity. These two are just so sweet and fun to be around, we can’t get over the joy of their day even as the time passes. We feel richly blessed to have been able to witness a day as wonderful as this one. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Jones!

Jeny + Drew | Amadeus Ranch Wedding PhotographerJanuary 16, 2018

Jeny and Drew’s day at Amadeus Ranch embodied everything we love about weddings, lots of smiles, happy tears, lots of pretty things and so much love! Amadeus Ranch was the perfect setting for the day and made for a beautiful backdrop for their intimate ceremony. We loved every part of the day from the getting ready moments that are always so fleeting that only few see, to the amazing dance off at the reception that will be remembered by all in attendance. Amadeus Ranch Wedding Photographer

When we arrived at Amadeus Ranch Jeny was looking flawless as always and was just so calm, cool and collected as she patiently awaited her walk down the aisle. We loved how she was surrounded by such caring family and friends that made sure her only job was to enjoy her day to the fullest! As there often is during the Bridal and Bridal Party getting ready part of the day, there was much laughter and lots of reminiscing. Our favorite moment was when Jeny and her Bridesmaids that she used to play soccer with threw on their soccer cleats for a fun photo opportunity.  So fun!! Amadeus Ranch Wedding Photographer

While Jeny and her girls prepared for the main event, Drew was having just as much fun with his Groomsmen. The thing we learned about Drew that day is that he’s notorious for being a little tardy at times. This didn’t concern us since we’re good at improvising when it comes to timelines, but it did get quite a few laughs from those who know Drew very well seeing as it seemed to take the guys longer to prepare. We know Drew was just making Jeny wait to raise the level of anticipation. There was so much laughing in the guys getting ready room and maybe even a toast or two but definitely tons of fun. Even after a little teasing about being late, Drew was all smiles the whole time he was getting ready in anticipation of seeing Jeny during their first look.  Amadeus Ranch Wedding Photographer

Jeny and Drew’s first look couldn’t have been more intimate, grand, exciting and peaceful all at once. Drew waited outside the front doors for Jeny to come out and see him for the final time before they were officially Husband and Wife. Drew looked into the distance as Jeny opened the doors behind him and made her way down the steps to make her grand reveal. The two have the best smiles so it was basically the happiest scene ever watching these two anticipate this moment. Lots of anticipation, lots of smiles and when Drew turned around I’m pretty sure they were both breathless at the sight of each other. They both were so in the moment it was as if no one else was around and it was just the two of them. We’re so glad they had this moment before the ceremony to enjoy, have some time without the hustle and bustle and to simply share in the excitement for the ceremony. 

The ceremony was so thoughtful and bright. We loved the traditional vows mixed with personal stories about Jeny and Drew, lots of laughter and a beautiful message. A lot of thought went into not only the decorations, attire and location, but into the people involved in the day. Everyone in Jeny and Drew’s circle of friends and family was so happy to be there supporting them and so fun to be around, it made for an even more fun reception!  Amadeus Ranch Wedding Photographer

To follow suite with the rest of the day, the reception was nothing short of amazing. We loved the fun grand entrance that highlighted all the unique and fun personalities of the wedding party, it really set the tone for the night of fun that was about to be had. Being the sweet souls they are, Jeny and Drew had a birthday cake for one of the Bridesmaids and they made sure to wish her a happy birthday and celebrate her when it was time to cut their own cake. Oh, and we can’t forget the shoe game! These two played the shoe game (check it out…it’s hysterical!) and DJ Brock from Brock Entertainment kept them on their toes with some super fun questions that had them either being unapologetically honest or throwing the shoes and refusing to answer. No party is complete without a dance off…this party had the whole crowd on the dance floor. The always amazing first dance, sweet Mother-Son dance and super special Mother-Daughter dance were all tear-worthy and beautiful.   There were many heartfelt toasts made, lots of sweet dance moves demonstrated and so much happiness throughout. The whole evening was so lighthearted and an absolute blast. We’re truly honored to have witnessed such a perfect celebration of two wonderful people and their families uniting. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Pearcy!

Kiersten + Josh | Cooper Chapel Wedding PhotographerNovember 10, 2017

Kiersten and Josh had the most perfect day! We have had the best time getting to know them and we feel so lucky to have witnessed them saying their vows and celebrating with loved ones. We loved everything about this day. For starters, they both have the most amazing families and the whole feel of the day was just warm and fuzzy! These two are so wonderful and they surround themselves with equally great people. Their day started with getting ready with Family and Friends at the Four Points by Sheraton. Those rooms were full of laughter, nervous yet excited smiles and lots of anticipation for the ceremony. Cooper Chapel Wedding Photographer

Kiersten’s Grandpa brought his classic Chrysler to take the girls to Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel in style and for the Bride and Groom to use as a getaway car. It is so beautiful and such a sweet memory for them to have. We took full advantage of the photo opportunities obviously. We just love those little details that make the day that much more fun and unique!

The ceremony at Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel was absolutely perfect and Josh was definitely blown away when he saw Kiersten for the first time. So. Stinkin’. Sweet! Let’s also take a moment to talk about the kiddos in the wedding party. Lanterns, flower crowns, tulle and little bow ties? We can’t get enough of their cuteness…cutest little wedding party! We loved everything about the wedding party and sweet ceremony. Cooper Chapel Wedding Photographer

Kiersten and Josh made their way back to the reception at Four Points by Sheraton in their beautiful getaway car. Their grand entrance was epic, the cake was amazing, the dancing was way too much fun and the celebration was memorable. The day was perfection and not soon to be forgotten. We feel so honored to have shared in the celebration of these two sweet people and we wish them a forever full of happiness. We’re happy to have them as part of the DP Family! Cooper Chapel Wedding Photographer

Carlie & Eric | Fayetteville Engagement PhotographerJune 14, 2017

Carlie and Eric are so much fun!  Their session was so easy going, lighthearted and sweet.  None of us had been to Lake Sequoyah Park but they decided they were up for an adventure. We had the best time with them walking, laughing and hearing plans for their big day. They even brought their pup along for a few photo opportunities which made their session even sweeter! We are counting down the days until their wedding and we know it’s going to be simply amazing. Stay tuned for their wedding on the blog in the future and enjoy! Fayetteville Engagement Photographer
