Jessica and Brent’s Fantastic Fantasy Wedding! – Fayetteville, Arkansas


Jessica and Brent’s fantastic fantasy wedding is one that I will never forget! When Jessica and Brent contacted me earlier this year and let me know they were having a Lord of the Rings theme wedding, I was so excited! From their engagement session at Terra Studios, Jessica’s bridal session at Fort Smith’s River Front Park, to their beautiful wedding at St. Catherine’s at Bell Gable all were styled to match their wedding theme.

Jessica’s bridal session is one of my all time favorites with her gorgeous wedding dress and fairy wings and a beautiful fall day.

Jessica’s dress was actually modeled after Drew Barrymore’s dress in the movie Ever After.  She knew as soon as she saw it that it was the perfect dress for her.  She had it custom made and it tuned out beautifully!

Their wedding ceremony took place at St. Catherine’s at Bell Gable which is one of my favorite locations in Fayetteville.  It fit perfectly with their Lord of the Rings theme.

Their wedding was so awesome that Gandalf came out of retirement to perform their vows!

For entertainment, they had a Renaissance Faire Dance Troop to come and teach everyone a variety of Renaissance based dances.  All of the guests really enjoyed this.
