October 4th was a crazy busy day for me as a Fayetteville wedding photographer. In that one day, I shot two weddings and my second shooter shot another one for me. You might wonder why that day would be so popular; well, it was the off week for the Razorbacks, so if you had your wedding that day, you wouldn’t have to compete with the game.
Fayetteville Wedding Photographer: Victoria and Kyle
For the first part of my day, I got to hang out with Victoria and Kyle at St. Catherine’s at Bell Gable. You might remember this awesome couple from their engagement photos that I posted awhile back. This wasn’t the longest wedding for me, but there were some really special moments in the day.
Victoria set up for an old classic Ford to bring her down to the ceremony site, but like all weddings, there was a hitch. The old car wouldn’t start. Lucky for her, the site had their own classic car she could borrow.
There ceremony was held outside of the chapel, which for photography purposes can be a real blessing. Victoria and Kyle faced each other in front, while the bridal party was out in front and the crowd was arranged in two sections. This allowed me to really move around and get some good angles. Inside the church I’m much more limited.
After the ceremony, the reception was held just about a hundred yards away at the barn. Because it was an early morning wedding, Victoria decided to serve breakfast including eggs, bacon, and chocolate milk. I have to say I loved that idea. They still had the traditional cake and even pies, but the breakfast was a nice twist.
Fayetteville Wedding Photographer: The Details
Victoria also had some great wedding details. She had Jinga blocks set out and her guests were to write marital advice on each block. This way, they could play the game later and also have some great ideas. She had a wood wall with photos hanging up, a giant cloth chess board, and Hershey kisses with their date on the bottom.
The morning ended with Victoria and Kyle running out from the barn through their friends and a ton of bubbles. It was a classic ending to a beautiful day, one that any Fayetteville wedding photographer would love to be part of, including me.
