Sarah + Kameron
Cave Springs // 5.7.22
The workplace brought Sarah Stoiber and Kameron Keesling together. After several years of friendship through working at Sam’s Club’s corporate headquarters, the two began dating. Kameron proposed the day before Sarah’s birthday, which she planned to celebrate with a barbecue at her house. Kameron had her open a couple of gifts and then gave her a large, heavy present. She opened it to see a tiny ring box surrounded by bricks. “I immediately said ‘yes,’ and our friends arrived shortly after to celebrate with us,” Sarah recalls.With Kameron being from Florida and Sarah growing up in Little Rock, the two decided to host their wedding in their current home base of Northwest Arkansas. Osage House gave them the ability to have both the ceremony and reception in one location but in separate spaces, which was attractive to the couple. “Most importantly, we loved how it was nestled in Arkansas’s natural beauty. Everything was green and in full bloom,” Sarah says. Working with a planner, they began to pull together everything for a spring wedding. “The amazing Amanda Reed helped to make all of our dreams a reality,” Sarah says.
Sarah had long dreamt of the flowers for the big day. She selected her favorites, including peonies, ranunculus, tulips, and roses in vibrant shades of orange and pink. Additionally, the dance floor corners were anchored by four statement-making trees handcrafted by Samantha’s Garden. Guests dined on filet mignon and chicken piccata before taking to the dance floor to celebrate the newly married couple.
Sarah and Kameron shared a private last dance and then joined their guests on the bus to downtown Bentonville—extending the evening as long as possible. After a honeymoon in Italy, they are now at home in Rogers.
To keep the memory of her late father close during the day, Sarah attached a locket with his picture to her bouquet. An engraved charm for their late dog, Charlee, was also added.
“Most women have a Pinterest board titled Wedding Day. My wedding Pinterest board has always been titled Flowers & The Party. So, my must-have was the florals!”
The couple’s cockapoo, Rosie, adorned with the wedding day’s signature orange blooms.
Sarah and Kameron worked on a set list with their band, Lost Wax. Their first dance was to an acoustic version of Elvis’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Guests were greeted at the reception with glasses of Prosecco.
