It seems the weather patterns have been unpredictable lately. The Saturday morning started off with scattered rain. But by the time Ben and Joy were ready to see each other, the sun had appeared and the temperatures had warmed up. You might remember these two from their engagement photos. We had a blast in the little town of Eureka Springs, where they love to get away for the day or the weekend. After the we finished with photos, they bought me pizza and showed me how to play darts. And since then, we've become good friends. Right now, they're off to Cape Cod and Boston for their honeymoon but should they check their phones while they're away, we hope that these photos are a nice little surprise :) Cheers and Congratulations you two!
For the life of me, I can't recall a wedding other than my own where I had to hold back a few tears. But such was the case this past weekend, when Collin Jackson and Erin Pham recited their beautifully written and intensely personal vows to each other. It was a beautiful day for the wedding. For what seemed like the first time this year, the temperatures rose above freezing and the sun graced us with its warmth. We arrived in the morning and spent the day with Collin and Erin, their family and friends as they prepared for the long awaited celebration. And when it finally arrived, I found myself, like the hundreds of others in the room, getting a little emotional. Stone Chapel was indeed packed out for the celebration, but I do believe even MORE people packed out the adjoining reception area, where the guys from Brock Entertainment pumped out the music and the motivation to respond to that music with lots of epic dance moves. Even with 11 stitches in my knee from a recent mountain biking accident, I found myself in the middle of it all, capturing various displays of awesomeness while attempting a few dance moves of my own. All in all, it was a wonderful way to start out 2014 and we are SO HAPPY for the new Mr. & Mrs. Jackson. Here's a few images from the day. Enjoy!
