When we found out that Amanda and Jacob wanted us to shoot their wedding in Arkansas, we were over the moon with excitement. When we found out the wedding was at Degray Lake we were even more over joyed!  Amanda and Jacob decided on a date and booked us to shoot their Degray Lake wedding on September 30. We just knew it was going to be a blast!

John and I traveled to Arkansas a few weeks earlier for the engagement session, and since John is from the area it was an added bonus to spend time with his family before and after the session. The weekend of the engagement session was overcast and a bit cold, but the wedding weekend couldn’t have been more beautiful. I love a good sunny day! The ceremony took place outside overlooking the lake. Amanda and Jacob sure have some great taste because I loved everything about this place.

After the wedding Amanda asked us if we could do bride and groom portraits after the day was complete instead of doing them during the cocktail hour, which I loved because sometimes the amount of time we spend on family formals and bridal party there isn’t very much time for bride and groom pictures. The four of us walked all over the resort finding the coolest spots for portraits. We even found a boat to take pictures near! A little while after we found the boat the owners came down to take the boat on the water, luckily we didn’t sit on it or get inside!

I totally want to give a shout out to the brides mom, Toni, she was phenomenal! She listened and read everything we sent over to the couple to prepare them for their wedding day and I loved her for that. The day ran so smooth and I can honestly say it was all because of her!

Amanda and Jacob, your wedding was amazing. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and we’ll be following your married journey forever! Check back HERE for more blogs next week!

    The scenery is so beautiful. I had a family member get married on a lake in Arkansas. The photos of the bride and groom at the end are some of my favorites. I like the fact in the beginning where you said that you were able to visit family when you took the couples engagement photos.

    Love a lakeside wedding (but I may be biased because we had one too). Gorgeous wedding dress!
