3 Year Wedding Anniversary Session At St Catherine's At Bell Gable

Hi friends!

I'm so excited to share with you this session with Ashton & Taylor in Fayetteville At St Catherine's Chapel. These two got married in June almost 3 years ago now, and I got to photograph their marriage! To say I was excited to photograph them again is an understatement.

This session is in collaboration with Bridally NWA who I joined up with to giveaway this session to one lucky couple! Be sure to follow Bridally for more venders and wedding ideas in northwest arkansas!

Enjoy fam!

The Ravington / Styled Bridal Shoot With JLK Weddings

Hi there friends!

I'm so excited to share with you this set of photographs from a recent bridal shoot. This was a project I dreamed up and was itching to shoot. I reached out to Jessica from JLK Weddings and she so perfectly made it come to life.

What we really wanted to convey, was a wedding concept which was simple, natural, romantic, and elegant. A lot of what Jessica designed and styled was minimal. If you're planning your wedding, I hope this inspires you. Simplicity can be so beautiful, and will most likely be timeless.

I honestly can't wait to bring together more projects like this in the future! Hope you enjoy scrolling through these pretty images!

5 Things To Expect On Your Wedding Day

Hi friends!
Coming to you with yet another post on a few things I've observed as a wedding photographer for the last 4 years. Most people don't know quite what to expect for their big day, but as someone who got married a year ago, and who sees some reoccurring things take place as I work with my clients, there's five main things I can tell you are likely to take place.

1.) You should expect things to go wrong. 

Yep. Every single wedding I've ever been a part of has had some sort of last minute change of plans or several things go "wrong". Go into your day expectant of this, because not every detail will unfold perfectly. The biggest thing to remember is that you've done months of planning, and now it's finally your wedding day, so let it happen and soak up every moment.

2.) Expect to feel so excited it's overwhelming

Oh my gosh. I've seen that look on every bride's face, one where she's so grateful, happy, relieved and overwhelmed all at once. So many things are going through your head and you can hardly keep up. It's going to be amazing seeing all of your family and SO many close friends all together in one place, there, for you!

3.) You should expect to look and feel like a million bucks

You're going to look back on this feeling for years to come. I remember on my own my wedding day thinking I could've lived in that dress forever and didn't want to take my hair down from how perfectly arranged it was. And when my husband finally saw me and told me how much he loved the dress, my hair, the flowers - I really couldn't breathe.

4.) Expect the day to go by WAY too quick.

I've heard this one time after time. I can promise you that the day you've waited and planned out for months is going to fly. You'll get to the end of the day and it might seem impossible how quickly it slipped by.

That's why I want to tell you this - please enjoy it! Take the time to hug everyone you can and visit with those who came to witness this event. And look at your new husband lots of times and let your heart swell with thankfulness.

You can't get this day back.

5.) You should expect an imperfectly perfect day

Most of all, I promise you'll look back on this day and love all the beautiful imperfections. Because this is your wedding, it will be unique to YOU and your fiance. No day is perfect, but the love you share is, and that is worth celebrating.
 

This is the day I want to capture for you!
Your wedding day, which will be the day you'll remember for years to come.

Until next time,
Lydiah Chrisitne
