Danielle and Will planned their wedding so that they could be married only a few short weeks after suffering through the Bar Exam. We all joked that if they could endure that test of will together, then marriage would be a breeze! In all seriousness, though, these two have nothing to worry about. Their hearts are already so giving, and their arms already so open, that taking this next step is just the natural course of their adventure together.
All of Danielle and Will’s guests made the trip to Little Rock to witness their pledge of love. One of the most important things to Danielle was that these guests – the most important people in their lives – would feel welcome and right at home. They could not have chosen a better venue for the gift of Southern hospitality! The Capital Hotel made us all feel like part of the family. It has a rich history and is as beautiful as it is charming! Not to mention a killer tile floor and lots of natural light. It was a photographer’s dream!
Danielle looked like a for real princess on her wedding day, and even more importantly, was just as gracious as one. Her smile never faltered. Every step was graceful. Every gleam in her eye was genuine. She hugged everyone. She laughed all day. And when she caught a glimpse of her groom at the bottom of the stairs (just WAIT till you see their First Look!), her whole being simply glowed. She had been waiting her whole life to wear that dress, but the dress had nothing on the love she has for Will.
Thank you both so much for hosting us in Little Rock! Your wedding was a breath of fresh air, in more ways than one, and we wouldn’t have missed it for the world! Enjoy a few of our favorites!
Loved these robes. Loved these cups and straws. Loved these girls!
This is one of my favorite photos of the whole day! When Danielle sat down and her dress wooshed around her, she literally squealed! She was so happy to be a bride!
Danielle and Will chose to see each other before the ceremony, and they said afterward that it was the best decision they made all day! I certainly agree, and these photos are priceless! Danielle walked down the beautiful staircase to see her groom, and they both immediately relaxed and were so HAPPY!
Yes, they are this adorable in real life and need absolutely no prodding! This is a completely un-posed photo!
The inside of the hotel is too beautiful to ignore, so we had to have some inside photos as well. I’ve rarely been this excited to shoot indoors! The light was beautiful, and that FLOOR!
Loved the blush ties and the hint of the South in the boutonnieres!
This bridal party was AWESOME!
There was a slight drizzle after the ceremony, but it didn’t scare these two! They were more than happy to stand under an umbrella for a few post-married shots. Love them so much!
The ballroom looked gorgeous in shades of blush and navy.
Yes, that is a Cinderella slipper on top of their cake. I told you Danielle was a for real princess 😉
Danielle and Will, we can’t thank you enough for including us in your amazing day. Everything was beautiful and perfect, but not as beautiful and perfect as you! I know you’re enjoying Mexico right now, and we can’t wait to hear all about it!
