PHOTOGRAPHY: RETT PEEK
Putting together my first issue of Weddings in Arkansas felt a little like planning my own wedding: Where to even begin in picking the right flowers, the perfect cake, the best invitation suite, that wow-ing gown? But this time, luckily, I didn’t have to narrow it down to just one of each—which made this task arguably more fun. Our team got to bring some of our wildest wedding-planning dreams to life, including a succulent-inspired celebration (page 11) and bridal fashion fit for a fairytale princess (page 25). We were also so inspired by the many ways in which our Real Weddings brides and grooms infused their celebrations with personality. Whether that meant donning a beloved older sister’s veil (page 48), coordinating the color scheme around a jeweltoned fruit (page 52), or finding the “cutest sparkly heel” for the big day (page 44), these couples remind us that it’s the little things—the details that maybe only you and your soon-to-be-spouse will notice—that really matter. If you’re reading this and planning for your own wedding, we hope you’ll find something here that sparks an idea to fill in a blank on your ever-growing to-do list. Remember, though, this part is all just for fun; the most important decision was the one you made when you said “yes.” DIGITAL EDITION
