Riki + Brent
Jonesboro // June 3, 2017
We’re happy to share Riki Sisk and Brent Taylor’s wedding on the blog today! These two were married at Harmony Gardens in Jonesboro. Read on for Riki’s inspirations, advice, and favorite moments throughout the day, plus beautiful moments captured by photographer Courtney Hollowell of CoHo Creative.
“I chose champagne as my wedding color when I was 14! I saw it in a bridal store when I was shopping for a bridesmaids dress for my cousin’s wedding. I loved how timeless and elegant it seemed. When it actually came time to plan my wedding, I tossed around some other trendy colors, but I kept thinking about how those colors might clash with the flowers planted in the gardens at my venue—since my wedding was a year away, it was hard to know what they’d have planted at the time. My bridesmaids and I went to David’s Bridal and tried on dresses, and I just kept coming back to champagne. It ended up being perfect!”
“One of my best friends found our venue, Harmony Gardens, on Facebook. When we looked at the venue, I loved all that it offered. The idea of a garden wedding seemed super romantic. I chose the venue without even looking at any others.”
“I planned the whole wedding myself along (with the help of Pinterest)! I bounced ideas off my bridesmaids, but I was set on what I wanted. My husband’s Aunt Candy helped coordinate the day of. I made sure to be very organized and have every little detail scheduled and everything worked out perfectly.
I really wanted a timeless look for my wedding which is why I had my husband wear only black and white, and to go with an arrangement of white florals and greenery. All of the greenery ended up looking perfect with garden color scheme.”
“It’s honestly so hard to choose a favorite part of the day—I loved every bit of it. I think my favorite memory is just the over all emotion and sentiment that was a part of the day. I felt surrounded by so much love, and I remember reminding myself throughout the day to just soak it all in. Even though my ceremony had to be moved because of rain (and my wedding cake fell over!), I can’t think of a single thing I would change about my wedding day—it was the most romantic day I’ve ever experienced. I think every bride deserves a day that special!”
