Happy Anniversary Katie and Ethan!

This Fayetteville Town Center reception, with a dreamy Fall wedding at Old Main Lawn on the U of A campus, is one of my all time favorite weddings!

Five years ago today, I found myself walking up the steps to Old Main lawn to a gorgeous sight of Fall Leaves. They appeared in every color as the background for the day’s wedding ceremony. I remember being in awe of what I was getting to do: photograph a wedding at Old Main in the Fall.

The Fall Wedding Details…

Amanda Reed gathered some of the areas best vendors, including Tanarah Luxe Florals from Little Rock. The team succeeded in transforming the Fayetteville Town Center into a Fall wonderland. The huge space was breathtaking as Katie and Ethan’s guests entered to the following sight:

I’m obsessed with the hanging cake! It was literally suspended from the ceiling! The rest of the details were equally dreamy, with pumpkins and fall leaves and gourds decorating the reception at the Fayetteville Town Center.

But let’s back up… I don’t want you to miss the incredible Fall wedding ceremony at Old Main!

The gold confetti that the bride and groom’s family threw at their grand exit from the wedding ceremony was a perfect ending to the Fall wedding festivities at Old Main.

Because we had some red fall leaves on the Old Main lawn, I thought we should photograph the couple with them in the photo to show how gorgeous Fall in Northwest Arkansas is!
