On February 22nd, in the cutest chapel in Farmington Arkansas, Lawrence and Emily’s elopement ceremony was the prettiest and most fitting one I’ve ever seen. The Chapel at Walnut Grove is an amazing venue made of red brick, and stained glass with a big bell on top. I am absolutely obsessed with this chapel! The inside is gorgeous from all the stained glass on the outside, so the pictures inside were all super pretty!
It reminds me of those old English chapels. Just a smaller and more compact version of them. But the smaller space didn’t stop the stately and regal feel that everyone felt in that Chapel that day.
Emily’s dress from She Said Yes Bridal was absolutely gorgeous with amazing beading! It was so pretty, I will never forget how beautiful it was. And the getting ready area was small and intimate too, but we made it work. I was able to get those awesome getting ready photos that everyone always loves!
The Bouquet that Emily held was from Bloom Floral and Gifts. I absolutely love working with them, and think their work is just some of the best!
We set up a First Look before the ceremony for Lawrence and Emily to have a quiet moment. Lawrence even got emotional when he saw his beautiful bride. It was freezing at 28 degrees, and it was even snowing, but the scenery was so pretty! And they were all for getting those shots, and I’m so thankful they did. They turned out amazing!
The wedding chapel held the guests for their intimate elopement quite comfortably, and one of the most awesome things about this event was the peace and calm that radiated among them and their family. Lawrence’s dad officiated the ceremony, and it was so special.
The Chapel at Walnut Grove has a special send off they do for the newlyweds married in their venue. They line up the immediate family, grandparents and friends around the bell, and Lawrence and Emily rang the bell, signifying the start of their married life! All of her family smiled and cheered. It was super special and it added to the amazing touch to the whole event.
It really was an awesome day. The simple and peaceful vibe, and the beautiful venue made the day, and getting to work with Lawrence and Emily was just so much fun! The beginning of their love story was an honor to be a part of!
