Abby and Adam’s wedding at Fellowship Bible Church


Abby and Adam were married on May 28, 2011 at Fellowship Bible Church in Lowell, Arkansas. The ceremony and reception were both held in a pretty little building behind the main church. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, which gave us some really nice options for portrait locations. The couple chose to have a traditional ceremony, and included communion and the lighting of a unity candle.  The decorations for the ceremony were kept almost entirely free of color with white candles and a little greenery to decorate the large stone fireplace. This clean look for the ceremony decor allowed the vibrant flowers of the bridal party to really stand out.  The reception was decorated with bright Gerber daisies on the guest tables and the cake. The food was also very colorful with large trays of sushi taking center stage. The wedding cake was four different flavors, and actually made by the groom! I guess that’s one of the perks of marrying a chef 🙂

The bride and groom decided to "see" each other before the ceremony. Despite tradition, I have found this really helps both people to relax, and getting some of the group pictures done before hand really helps streamline things later on.

Decoration Details. The groom baked and decorated the wedding cake himself! What a renaissance man!

The ceremony was held in a lodge style building with a beautiful stone fireplace on the back side of the Fellowship campus. I loved watching the flower girl sitting in the front row, who was so intently watching the ceremony.

This is a fun bridal party shot we did on the side porch of the lodge.

The reception featured beautiful sushi platters from the chefs at the Embassy Suites Hotel, and the favor boxes contained handmade fudge from the Amish Cheese house in Chouteau, Oklahoma.

The grounds at Fellowship Bible Church are really nice. It was like having a park all to ourselves for portraits!

Congratulations to Abby and Adam! Ed and I wish you all the best in your new life together.
