{love stories} Jessica & Brandon | Dancing in the Rain

December 07, 2011  •  Leave a Comment
As the chapter of our HARDING University couples continues we were super excited to meet Jessica Johnson - a good friend of a few of our OTHER brides from Harding, and a completely fresh and creative kind of bride.  It's always tough when so much planning goes into a beautiful wedding and the couple wakes up to rain - but this wedding was so different than the norm...


St. Anthony's on the Creeks is a brand new venue for Northwest Arkansas, and this was my first shot to get a camera inside.  Their lush forest scenery wasn't lost even in the rain as the colors of the gardens and even the stone in the chapel and reception hall were so deep and warm.  There are really only a few locations that I get really excited to shoot at in Northwest Arkansas and I can honestly say I can't wait to get back out there soon.


Right as the guests started to pull up the clouds broke into a beautiful sunset and Jessica and Brandon said all of their "I do's" to warm sun coming through the stained glass chapel windows.  The beauty of St. Anthony's is the maybe 75ft walk to the reception hall from the ceremony and though there's more than enough places for us to run around and shoot, the reception started immediately.  We all (myself included) danced pretty late into the night and when the bubbles flew during the leave I'm sure we woke up more than a few homes nearby with the guests screaming and whistling.  


Long story short this really was a beautiful one.  Such a fun, loving family on both sides really allowed for great ideas and great fun to be had, and the absolute best part was watching the fun and joy of the day come through despite the weather.  Congrats you two! Thank you for letting me be such a big part of all of this with you!
