I have no idea how I missed blogging this gorgeous wedding!  I guess this means our wedding posts will be a  TINY bit out of order - no biggie! ;)

Trent and Chelsey were married at the super gorgeous Thorncrown Chapel, here in Eureka Springs, AR.  Their reception was immediately following at The 1886 Crescent Hotel, and was equally lovely. :)  I must say, I absolutely loved the combination of Trent's military uniform and Chelsey's stunning Vera Wang gown and shoes.  Perfection!!  Oh, and the yellow bridesmaids dresses and flowers were the icing on the cake - such bright happy colors. :)  This was such a fun group of people to work with (note the last image...that song they're belting out is of course Journey "Don't Stop Believing") - gotta love it!

Enjoy! :)

Dwayne and Ashton were married and had their reception at the gorgeous Park on the River in Maumelle, AR (which is near Little Rock).  It was another absolutely perfect day - warm weather, beautiful golden sunset, and a great looking couple.  How could we ask for more?!  Hope you enjoy some of our favorites from their special day!

Another gorgeous summer wedding coming up!  Cade Davis and Mara Nelson were married in June at the Myriad Botanical Gardens in Oklahoma City.  Let me tell you, this is one GORGEOUS location!  We started the day getting ready with the wedding party at the Skirvin Hotel which has to be one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever seen.  It's this fabulously renovated historic hotel in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City.  LOVED IT.  From there, the party traveled by carriage to the Myriad Gardens, where the wedding and reception were held.  It was sunny and warm and perfect. :)  On a side note, Cade actually plays professional basketball overseas (he's awesome!), so I was surrounded by ball players all night!  Oddly enough, it took seeing Blake Griffin on a Subway commercial to realize he had been there as well. lol  So much for knowing my sports, right?  So, if you see several people in this crowd that look familiar - don't be surprised....just email me and tell me who they are.  ha ha ha ;)  Enjoy!!

Put a Little Steam into Your Nuptials

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the union of stunning steampunk style and the classic tradition known as the wedding. If you look at traditional bridal magazines and find yourself yawning at page after page of white dresses, shabby chic & indie DIY décor, debates on whether celadon or hot pink is the hottest trend in accent colors and bored to tears with the photos that look like they were shot in the 1960’s and have been sitting around in someone’s attic for the past 50 years then do I have something for you. Have you considered a steampunk inspired wedding?

For those of you who are unfamiliar, steampunk, which began as a literary movement, has now turned into a full-blown subculture complete with music, conventions, and a highly unique aesthetic. I suppose the best way to describe it is if goth grew up, had a tryst with sci-fi and then time-traveled back to the Victorian era to raise their lovechild. Confused? Have you seen Back To The Future III? *(spoiler alert)* You know at the end when Doc comes back to the future in the flying steam locomotive with his wife and his children Jules & Verne? The mix of high-tech with low-tech all wrapped up with a neo-victorian bow? That is steampunk…an updated, edgy classic with ray guns, goggles, bustles and braces.

Think that sounds too over the top for a wedding? Think again. Here are some awesome ideas for adding some steampunk style to your special day.
