When it rains...it pours love and laughter! This wedding will forever hold a special place in my heart. We definitely weathered the storm at Botanical Garden of the Ozarks (more like flood with 10+ inches of rain!) and made the best wedding celebration from it. We pulled off one of the most gorgeous outdoor wedding ceremonies I have ever seen amidst the one break in the monsoon--right at the exact time of they had chosen months earlier--it was truly a miracle and very meant to be. I have to give giant props to the beautiful and charming bride and groom team, Kamarra & Brian, for staying calm and positive through the entire day. Honestly, it even shows in their pictures how much fun we had. There was never a dull (or dry) moment and these two laughed and held on tight to each other every step of the way.

Exciting, beautiful, sweet, loving, fun, and laid-back are all words that I would use to describe the wedding of Cameron and Rachel Manders. These two are the type of couple that others set goals to become, seriously, so in love and so considerate of eachother. The wedding was a combination of DIY and GORGEOUS florals. Rachel has great taste which made my job that much sweeter. Photos provided by Britney Young Photography.
Morgan & Nathan are devout Christians who dedicated their lives to eachother through the love of Christ with beautiful vows in a simple and sweet wedding ceremony. They incorporated a foot-washing ceremony and a beautiful duet sung by two dear friends. The reception was filled with laughter, hugs, and dancing. Guests danced the night away to tunes provided by Groove Productions and enjoyed delicious barbeque from Penguin Eds. The Heinze and Boyles family member came together to set-up a delectable candy bar and a gorgeous photo display. The event was a true representation of their love for Christ, family, and eachother.

Tracey & Ryan could not have hand selected a more beautiful day to get married. These two lovebirds (you can definitely see it in the pictures!) chose one of my favorite venues, Pratt Place Inn, to exchange vows. The leaves were changing, the sun was bright and the weather was perfect. Not to mention the strong support and love of family love made this wedding extraordinarily memorable.

Melissa and Erich are two beautiful people who know how to host a wedding with style and energy. This couple threw a party for the books; we had a dress up dance (fit with masks and boas), a conga line, and delicious food provided by Table Mesa. Guests were busy on the dancefloor all night long. My absolute favorite part of the night was the toasts and getting to know the couple even more through the loving words of their closest friends and family. These two families came together seemlessly and poured out their love and adoration for this gorgeous couple. Venue: Stone Chapel & Photography: Kati Mallory Photo and Design
Leana and Andrew drove all the way from California to Arkansas to get married near his hometown. And I have to say it...this was the cutest little family I have ever seen! Just look at those 3 little boys, so handsome and precious. Aside from their gorgeous mommy, they definitely stole the show! Their parents were so chill and laid back, and so in love. The outdoor ceremony took place in the lawn of The Cypress Barn in Siloam Springs. The day was gorgeous and the wedding was officiated by one of the couples' best friends, which made it extra special. A peacock blue-themed reception followed indoors with dinner, tons of dancing, jello shots (bridesmaids brought their A game!), and yummy cake. Reception was catered by Penguin Ed's BBQ. The groomsmen had fun dancing and being extra goofy, just check out the picture where they are recreating a moment from Dirty Dancing. Music provided by Groove Productions. Obviously, this couple knows how to host a fabulous party! Congratulations Leana & Andrew! Photos by: Bryan Striegler Photography.
Eoghan & Erin were two of the easiest-going people I have ever met, yet head over heals for one another. The couple truly displayed that they understood the meaning and importance of family. Due to a health concern of a close immediate family member, the couple decided to move up the date of their wedding at the last moment. That is true love and sacrifice; to me, it is one of the most humble and loving things I have ever witnessed as a coordinator. And to make the story even more breath-taking, the new date of their nuptials: Valentine's Day! With Erin's sophisticated style, Ethan's sweet character, and the best-friend/officiant's sense of humor, the wedding took place at the Inn at Carnall Halll was simple and elegant followed by a lovely reception filled with endearing toasts and lots of laughter.

Liz & Alex were really able to capture both of their personalities in the details of the reception. They chose wedding colors to represent each of their Alma Maters. In addition, to make the reception even more unique and special, their families united to surprise the newlyweds with a sentimental slideshow. Also, the Event Group (Fayetteville) did an amazing job with the elegant sit down dinner. And we can't forget the cheesecake bar, a major hit with all of the guests (including me--so yummy!). The guests enjoyed every aspect, and the dance floor stayed busy all night long! Photos provided by Striegler Photography.
Thank you Note from Angela Clark
This gallery is not only a tribute to so many of my beautiful clients, but also a testament to how important strong vendors are to the overall success of a wedding. I say it all the time, but a wedding is a team effort and every member of the team plays a vital role in pulling off the event. Photographers, Venue Managers/Owners, Caterers, Decorators, Musicians, and Florists are essential pieces to the puzzle. Thank you to all of the fabulous and hard-working vendors who helped put together all of the puzzles that I have been a part of. We could not have been successful with all of you. :) -AC
We had so much fun planning and coordinating this wedding with a fabulous couple. Joe & Alena's wedding style was represented by simplicity, tradition, and love. I especially loved the beautiful setting for the reception at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Photos provided by Drew Cason Photography.
