If you missed the story of Zach’s sweet way he tells Tiffany he loves her each day, be sure to check out this post since it really is pretty awesome. And now for their wedding. :) I actually stumbled across Zach’s design work and their super rad wedding site he designed for their wedding. One of the best wedding sites I’ve seen for a wedding! And then finding out Matt of Our Labor of Love was their photographer? So perfect. I love Matt’s work too and knew he would capture their day pretty perfectly.
Tiffany + Zach choose October to get married since it has always been their favorite month with the cool temperatures + colorful foliage. The season and venue (Alda’s Magnolia Hill in Little Rock, Arkansas) were big inspirations for their day which was overall pretty Southern. They served chili as the main course with a mashed potato bar and other Southern influenced sides. They also had a bonfire with s’mores + hot cider by the lake where the ceremony took place. They kept the decor soft and simple, placing the most emphasis on having fun with their friends and family. Sounds pretty perfect to me. :) Congrats to Tiffany + Zach!
Tiffany + Zach wanted to do something a little unconventional for their invites, so they sent out 18″ x 24″ screen printed posters as their invitation which were designed by Zach. Absolutely love these!

For their favors, Tiffany + Zach made button packs for all their guests. (photo below from Zach)
The drive to the hotel after our wedding. It was the first time we actually had a chance to sit and take a breath. The entire drive all we could do was smile and talk about how perfect everything was. All of the stress of planning was behind us; we were just excited to be together.
Be assertive! Tell your vendors exactly what you want. Sometimes vendors have their own way of doing things, so don't be afraid to negotiate. Oh, and pace yourself. Make a detailed list and cross things off as you go. Other than that, just enjoy your day! How often do you get to throw a big party with all your friends and family to celebrate your love?
