To say it was a warm day is an understatement. More like hot and steamy, but not in a good way ;). The kind of day where if you walk outside, you would have to go back inside and reapply you makeup. It was a typical Arkansas, end-of-June day. None the less, it was Matthew and Annslie’s wedding day. It was the day that they were going to get to join their hearts and lives together forever. With Annslie squished in the back seat of her own car, myself in the passenger’s seat, and the maid of honor driving, we headed to the venue. The wedding was being held at the Royal Ridge Barns. Walking in was beautiful! A large chandelier hung right over the center of the dance floor. Around that were tables with smaller chandeliers hanging over them. It looked like it belonged in a magazine. As we all headed to the bridal suite, I looked to my right and saw the place where the couple would say their vows. The view was breath taking!
Soon after, hair and make up were being done. There were laughs and tears and many more emotions. As you would expect on a wedding day. Final touches were made and the bride was helped into her dress. It fit perfectly! Annslie was glowing.
Despite the heat, Matthew and Annslie had a fantastic day. The vows were said in a meaningful ceremony as the couple was surrounded by their friends and family. It was perfect.
Matthew and Annslie, I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. Thank you so much for allowing me to be apart of your day. It was an amazing weekend that I’ll never forget and will always treasure. You guys are perfect for one another and I look forward to seeing what life has in store for you. Congratulations!
Annslie’s mother passed away when Annslie was young and it was beautiful to see her memory honored by a framed photo and a long-stemmed rose. It was also very emotional.
It was an excellent time! Until next time.
Do Well and Do Good,
