Jessica and Brad wanted a different, unique venue that was large enough to hold a lot of wedding guests and where they could have both the ceremony and reception in one location. They found Drake Field in Fayetteville, Arkansas and knew it would be perfect. With the raw, industrial feel of the building, Jessica wanted to soften up the space with blush and gold tones, baby's breath and cheesecloth fabric. Jessica was inspired by Pinterest for her wedding reception decor. She purchased several glass vases of various shapes and sizes and painted them with a gold metallic paint to use as centerpieces on the reception tables. Accompanying those vases, were wooden flower stands scattered throughout the room. Lining the aisle were beautiful, wooden boxes that held sprays of baby's breath that met a backdrop made of strips of cheesecloth fabric. The wedding party got ready at the fabulous Chancellor Hotel in downtown Fayetteville, Arkansas. The perfect modern back drop for the bride and groom to prepare for their big day. Nothing creates the most raw emotion on a wedding day than a Father First Look seeing his little girl for the first time all dressed and ready to be wed. Jessica's sisters are in the background fully taking in this moment. They say every wedding has a story and this one was no different. This wedding almost didn't happen. The morning of the wedding, Brad was feeling under the weather. After seeing him progressively getting worse as the day went on, it was determined he had a severe stomach virus. The guests and the bride patiently waited. With the help of some powerful medicine and a lot of prayer, they made it through the ceremony, reception and onto the honeymoon! An interesting personal touch the couple added to the wedding day was Brad's high school mascot, the Winslow Squirrels. You could find squirrels on the groom's cake, the delicious fruit creation during the reception, and even on the groom's suit with a wooden squirrel pin made locally by MDI Collection. The guys thought it would be funny to recreate the scene of the groom getting sick right before the ceremony. Luckily the stomach virus subsided long enough for Brad to enjoy the remainder of his wedding day. In his own personal vows to Jessica, "I love you so much, it makes me sick."
