For their wedding day Lance and Laura picked an amazing spot, The Crescent Hotel, in Eureka Springs. I was lucky enough to see it for myself in person this fall while attending and working a friends wedding there. It’s so full of old vintage charm, and definitely a great spot for an event. Laura loves purple so they chose this color, and decided to use silver as an accent. She also felt that lovebirds were a really sweet symbol of love, and thought they would be a perfect match for the outdoor garden ceremony they were having. Their day turned out beautifully thanks to a lot of hard work from the bride, her family, and friends, so simple, bright, and fresh! A big thank you to Laura for sharing all the details of the day, and to Natasha Lopez for her images.
From the bride…
Lance and I met at Churchill Coffee, here in Springfield, MO where Lance used to work. I was a frequent customer there. A year after Churchills closed, we reconnected on Facebook and had our first date shortly after that and were immediately in separable. For our one-year anniversary, we spent July 4th weekend in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. While we were there we played with the idea of getting married there eventually because we both thought it was such a beautiful place. So two years after out first date, we got married there at the Crescent Hotel on July 4th!
Many things were DIY projects. The save-the-dates, invitations, programs, favors, centerpieces, and flowers were all planned by me and assembled with the help of my family and friends. All paper was purchased from paperandmore.com. Most craft supplies came from Hobby Lobby and Michaels. The coffee mug favors came from discountmugs.com the bridesmaid dresses were also custom. My former roommate, Alicia, helped design them and made all of them.
Lances favorite part of the wedding day was the reception – getting to talk to everyone. It’s hard to decide, but I think my favorite part was saying our vows.
