Caden & Kersten | Petit Jean Elopement

Speechless. That is the only word that comes to mind when I begin to describe the Strother Wedding. Caden and Kersten chose ,after many plans changing, to elope in Arkansas on top of the Petit Jean Mountain. To think that I might not have been able to capture these two tie the knot is crazy. Their original wedding date was in May. About a week before I made the phone calls to my May brides that I would not be able to capture their weddings because Liam was due the weeks before, Kersten called me asking if it would be okay if they moved their date to the fall. It’s crazy how things work out for the better. I am blown away by EVERY single shot. It’s going to be so hard to top this one.

The day started off with Kersten getting dressed in the Cabin. When I arrived we got her in her dress and made our way to the look out for Caden and Kersten to have a first look. Dreamy, Jaw Dropping, Drool Worthy Photos were taken right after. Seriously, can every bride get married here…PLEASE! The rain was in the distance and Kersten kept saying ” I just want a few photos without rain” , but we got SO MANY good ones. We then tried to wait the rain out to hold the ceremony there, but the rain persisted so we made our way back to the pavilion where Caden and Kersten exchanged the sweetest vows.

I also have a new wedding standard that every bride must not only get married in epic outdoor locations , but also cater chic-fil-a. This entire day was my dream. I know the rain made it stressful for the couple, but I don’t think God intended the day to be any different than what it was, Picture Perfect. Here are quite a few of my favorite shots form their day.

Caden and Kersten, I just love you two! I love the friendship that has formed since you have booked me and I am so excited to watch you two grow in marriage! Congrats Friends.
