Lincoln Arkansas Wedding: Sarah and Brian

Big or small, I love weddings. I’ve already talked about a few other small weddings I’ve had recently, but Sarah and Brian’s Lincoln Arkansas wedding had a different feel than the others.

The first thing that was really interesting was the location. We were in a small church in Lincoln. It definitely had that small-town feel to it, which is what they wanted. They didn’t want a big group of people and a lot of stress. I was really surprised by the chapel. Inside it was lovely. There were stained glass windows on three different sides and the whole place looked brand new.

Before the ceremony, I had time to snap some shots of Brian and his son. It was really sunny at that point, so I used the shade of the building to make things work. We were also in the city, so it was a bit of a struggle to avoid houses and other things in the background.

The ceremony had some great moments. Sarah’s father had passed, so she was walked down by her brother. I know it’s not the same as being walked down by your dad, but I think it’s really special to have someone else there to fill in. There were quite a few giggles during the ceremony as well. Apparently, Sarah has quite the personality, so that was mentioned a few times and she made some great faces in response.

After the ceremony, we spent a few minutes doing couple portraits, but again, it was so bright outside it was hard to do much. I ended up finding a spot inside the chapel and the reception hall to do something a little creative. The rest of my time there was spent at the reception. It was very low key. People were eating and talking and just enjoying it all.

I think I was only there for 2 or 3 hours, but I really got a feel for the couple and the area. It was a beautiful small wedding, and I hope it was everything they wanted!
