Ashley and Jon’s Fall wedding took place on a cloudy November day at Pratt Place Inn and Barn in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Ashley and her mother coordinated with the phenomenal team of Bates Events to create a vintage and rustic wedding setting. Ashley had no desire to stick to a color palette so she chose to use every color for her Fall wedding day! The couple made the day theirs by incorporating vintage furniture, a signature cocktail, hand potted succulents as parting favors, and Shake’s ice cream for guests to enjoy.
Ashley was thinking of comfort when choosing her stylish Toms wedges to wear on her wedding day.
One of my favorite things on this day was Ashley and Jon’s dog Otto was present during the getting ready process as well as being the ring bearer during the ceremony!
Ashley’s favorite part of the day was being able to spend the entire morning with her mother, sister, and her dog Otto.
This blue heart was sew into Ashley’s dress as the “Something Blue”.
These exquisite bouquet arrangements were created by the talented hands of Julie of Jules Design in Fayetteville, AR.
Ashley and her dad shared a first look together on the front steps of the Inn. It was a touching moment while Ashley’s mom and sister watch from a distance.
Jon’s older and younger brother were his groomsmen.
Ashley and Jon had a first look out in front of the cottage. Ashley gifted Jon a monogramed teal pocket square that he wore during the ceremony.
There was a hand drawn tree for guests to leave their finger print and sign in place of a traditional guest book. Accompanied with a sign stating “Choose a seat not a side!”
“We did have our own signature drink, which, was a total hit. The drink recipe we used was from St. Thomas, which was one of the first vacations that we took together. We went on a day sail with a great boat captain that had her very own drink recipe that was delicious and we called her and asked if we could have the recipe and of course she said yes” -Ashley
There cannot be a exciting wedding reception without Brock Entertainment there to liven everything up. Brock himself joined the wedding guests that night to entertain and motivate guests to let loose and have fun.
If the day wasn’t already perfect, everyone ended the evening with a lantern release in front of the barn.
