Time for another real Arkansas wedding! You will be absolutely inspired from the unique and colorful details of this summer wedding. Lindley Summers and Caleb Snowden were married September 1, 2013 at the Stables on the Hill in Fayetteville.
Below are some of our favorite images captured by Kaity Whitman of Photo Love. Keep an eye out for antique treasures, handmade elements, and lovely pastels.
The bride handmade the wedding programs which also served as fans!
What is that gorgeous flower in the center of the bouquet? A Protea King flower, shipped in from Africa! Designed by Pigmint Florist.
Don’t you just love this perfectly candid first look?
The groom carved a jewelry box by hand for the bride’s “day of wedding” gift. Inside – a vintage gold “S” locket!
Instead of flower petals, the flower girl threw paper hearts punched from old vintage books.
The bride’s uncle performed all wedding music with his acoustic guitar, including the wedding march which he learned for the ceremony.
Tying the knot!During the ceremony, the couple tied a fisherman’s knot to represent unity. They chose the fisherman’s knot because it is regarded as the strongest knot known to man. The rope will break before the knot will! The couples plans to frame the rope in their home as a reminder of their special day.
In preparation for the wedding, the couple spent weekends exploring flea markets and hand picking vintage treasures for wedding decor.
The furniture for the wedding display was refurbished and hand painted by the bride.
Family heirlooms such as quilts, books, mason jars, and even a Great Grandmother’s old camera were essential decor accents.
Family members brought in homemade pies and other desserts, some made from famous family recipes! Name plates labeled each dessert and paid tribute to the baker.
Such fun! The groom’s father restored this bright yellow 1977 Jeep Wrangler for the getaway car.
Wow! With so many personal touches, this self-designed wedding was truly the vision of the bride and groom.
Warm wishes to Lindley and Caleb! We hope your years together reflect the beauty and thoughtfulness of this special day.
