Hannah and Justin didn’t let a little rain interrupt their Arkansas wedding. In fact, the couple shared their first look in the falling rain, which couldn’t have been more romantic. Grant Daniels Photography captured every moment of the heartfelt day, from the personal ceremony led by a dear friend to embracing as newlyweds as the sun set over the park.

The Couple:

Hannah and Justin

The Wedding:

Petit Jean State Park, Morrilton, Arkansas

Our favorite moment in our wedding was our officiant, Daniel, a very close friend, took a moment to talk about how much growth he had seen in both of us and speak love and encouragement over our marriage. Daniel told funny stories about each of us, and he shared with family how much love there was in our relationship. Our favorite moment from the wedding day however, was our first look. It was a truly beautiful moment for just the two of us to share. We will never forget standing in the rain wearing our wedding best and celebrating an unforgettable day.

Our only advice would be to do what YOU want. Don’t let the opinions of friends or family members influence your decisions. Talk to each other and decide what the two of you want to do and stick to it. Do not let the expectations of others influence it. It will only take away the joy of it all and cause you a lot of stress. You will never regret your own happiness.

  2. Wow ! very nice and lovely wedding photo shoot. Thanks a lot for sharing with us.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! Does Petite Jean require a wedding permit to get eloped inside the park? Looking at eloping and haven’t been able to find any info on this for Arkansas state parks. Congrats to the happy couple!
