Thorncrown Chapel | Eureka Springs Wedding Photographer | Karis + Josiah


Karis and Josiah's simple wedding at Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs was filled with an abundance of gorgeous personalized details.  The vintage shoes perfectly complimented the bride's beautiful gown constructed of pieces gathered from the mother-of-the-bride's very own wedding dress. The couple had a goal of creating their perfect wedding that was laid-back, stress-free and just celebrating the joy with family and friends. The  fun-friendly dessert reception, held at Castle Rogue's Manor in Beaver, Arkansas was personalized with a variety of gorgeous handmade DIY details. Origami birds and the floral cake topper were only the beginning!

Karis had a wonderful idea to have a hot chocolate bar during the reception. All the guests enjoyed getting coffe or hot cocoa and mixing in different things like peppermint sticks, chocolate chips, marshmallows, cinnamon sticks, and red hots.

The bride wanted to incorporate that Josiah, the groom, was from Texas. What better way than to do a armadillo groom's cake!

The most magical part of the evening was when all the guests went outside and released lanterns into the night.
