Gail and Brian were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch in Dardanelle, Ark. on September 21. “The boho-inspired wedding day was super unique and fit their personalities so perfectly,” said Lance of Shingleur Photography. “Every detail, from lighting a prayer candle at the guest book table to gold cow skulls in the reception, was executed based off these two’s crazy dreams.” Their first look? Extremely intimate! “Gail walked barefoot through a field blanketed in flowers as Brian stood waiting her arrival,” he said. “When she tapped him on the shoulder, he turned around, saw his bride for the first time, and was absolutely speechless.” The ceremony featured a ribbon backdrop, rustic tree stump aisle markers, and wooden pews for guests. Bridesmaids stood side-by-side wearing white dresses, accessorized with wreaths in their hair, while groomsmen did the same wearing gray suits, accessorized with cowboy hats. Following the reception, everyone enjoyed a wish lantern send off!

Gold Chevron Summer Garden Wedding in Arkansas

From the bride:  “My overall goal for the day was to create a relaxed and fun day. We used the colors orange, light pink, cream and gold to help set a warm mood and environment. For the groom’s cake, we served sugar cookies from Great American Cookie Company. Anyone who knows Jud well knows he LOVES those cookies! I had a cute signature tree made on Etsy that we used as the guestbook. One of my favorite moments in the wedding process was probably our playlist. Jud and I picked out songs to play before the musician played. It reminded us of all the concerts we have been to together. I loved everything about the wedding day! I had a great time getting ready with my mom, sister and closest friends and taking pictures with Jud even though it was HOT. I loved being on my dad’s arm as he walked me down the aisle. I had fun singing and dancing with Jud and friends at the receptions. We also had a great time going out in Dickson with our friends after the reception! All in all we had an amazing and carefree time!”

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Let me start off with I’m from Arkansas, the “Natural State.” We have abundant trees and wildlife everywhere you look. The barn for me really encompassed the love I have for my state and natural surroundings. To get to the barn you take the “backroads” through beautiful wildflower pastures that have scattered trees that have stood the passage of time. You then travel down a dirt road with almost a perfect tunnel of blooming and green trees. You are greeted with a rustic and large barn, even though they constructed this barn about a year ago, it holds such an aged grandeur, it really makes you feel something special.  A connection to something you saw a long time ago, a place you always wanted to visit.  The area it is surrounded by has skillfully constructed stone garden beds with all colors and shapes of flowers. It also has a bonfire area and huge flatbed swing.  All of these things made me feel comfortable and at home. They made me feel proud that I could live in such a place full of beauty. The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch is a place where I believe many couples could find a serene but lively venue to create their perfect wedding memories.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Altar

2. Cake

3. Koozies

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

All day long it was supposed to rain on my wedding. The sky was gray and the sun was hidden. I was terrified that this would be the death of my dream outdoor wedding.  Of course, the barn had planned an inside move if needed, but I was still nervous. The rain held off and when it finally started to drizzle, while Joe and I were exchanging our vows under the arbor, the rain sprinkled in a perfect circle around us. It was the trees shaking off the collected drops in such a manner it looked planned. After the trees cleared their branches, the sun jumped out from a cloud and shined through these trees right on to us. It was seriously like something out of a movie.  Although we dated for six years prior to our wedding, this made me feel like this was proof that rain or shine we were meant to be together.

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The outdoor space. It had a waterfall, creek and lots of greenery.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. The pies and tiramisu instead of cake
  2. The outdoor venue
  3. The slideshow the maid of honor made which was watched during dinner

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Don’t do things just because that is “what you are supposed to do.”  If you want to do something a little non-traditional, then do it!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

The dancing during the reception.  Our family and friends live all over the country so it was very special to be able to celebrate and enjoy the night with all of them together.
