Beth Anne & Adam Iconic Fayetteville Wedding


July 12, 2019

There’s never been a sweeter couple than Beth Anne and Adam Jones. These high school sweethearts finally got to say “I do” on June 29th in their hometown at a breathtaking celebration with their family and friends. Beth Anne loves all timeless and traditional and she worked with her planner Erin Duncan, who is in the business of making wedding dreams come to life, to capture her vision for her wedding day. Words can’t quite do it justice, this day was gorgeous!

Beth Anne and Adam chose to get married at Central United Methodist church where Beth Anne’s parents were married years ago. In fact, we took a portrait of Beth Anne and Adam on the exact same staircase where her parents took a portrait on their wedding day! The couple wanted an outdoor reception near their alma mater, and The Inn at Carnall Hall on the east side of Old Main lawn was the perfect spot for the occasion. Beth Anne’s bridesmaids wore light blue silk taffeta gowns and the groomsmen wore traditional black tuxes, with personalized cufflinks, which were a gift from the groom. Beth Anne wore a gorgeous Isabelle Armstrong gown from Stanley Korshak in Dallas and she was absolutely radiant. She had her hair and makeup done by Olivia Blair Yeager from Dead Swanky, who completed her bridal look with an elegant swept back bun.

Every detail of their wedding day was both sentimental and stunning, down to the cocktail napkins that shared 6 different fun facts about the couple. Since Beth Anne’s favorite colors are sea blue and sky blue, a nod to her Kappa Kappa Gamma days, and she accented her day with light blue, navy, and white. They welcomed their guests to Fayetteville with gift boxes that included navy and light blue koozies, locally made macarons from Alchemy Macarons, a bottle of champagne, all tied up with a navy striped ribbon and of the couple’s custom crest on the side of the box. Rose of Sharon Floral created gorgeous floral arrangements for the entire reception area. Shelby Lynn designed the perfect cake for the wedding, complete with 5 tiers of icing hydrangeas, navy striped ribbon, and the couple’s crest. And the band Funkytown out of Memphis kept the party going all night long. The couple whisked away through a gauntlet of confetti and drove off a vintage Cadillac. Beth Anne and Adam’s entire wedding day was lovely– the details, the guests, the family and everything in between– and we felt so honored to be a part of their celebration.
