Arkansas Engagement: Lauren Robertson & Nelson McCord

Lauren Robertson of White Hall and Lake Village native Nelson McCord are engaged to be married and will exchange vows on Saturday, May 30, 2015, at the Palazzo Del Sol House in Destin, FL.

We're crushing hard on their engagement session by Miki McCurdy and too-cute love story from Lauren!

I was living in Memphis for Dental Hygiene School when I was set up by a friend/classmate to go on a blind date with Nelson, who lived in Fayetteville at the time. With prior plans made to visit some relatives who live in Memphis, we made additional plans to meet for the first time to see if we would hit it off. We met at a small restaurant named Tug's located on Mud Island, which is where I lived at the time. After that night, I knew the rest was history! After three years of dating long distance and adding a fur-baby to the mix (a golden retriever puppy who we named "Tug" after our special place), Nelson took me back to Tug's and proposed in the midst of our closest family and friends!

Arkansas Engagement: Cameron Alt & Matt Calhoun

Clinton, MS, native Cameron Alt and Matt Calhoun are tying the knot on Saturday, December 20, 2014, at Cone Chapel on the campus of Harding University in Matt's hometown of Searcy.

Check out these dreamy engagement photos by Cassie Jones Photography and their sweet love story!

Cameron and Matt met on a medical mission trip to Guatemala in July of 2010. Cameron did not know anyone on the trip, and Matt was the first person to introduce himself on a bus outside of the airport. The two got to know each other very well throughout the trip and decided to keep in touch. Coincidentally, they would both be attending Harding University that fall. Their first official date was to see the Eli Young Band in Little Rock, and the rest is history!

Dreamy Park Pics That Will Make You Fall in Love With the Natural State

What is it about temperatures like these that make us want nothing more than to spend our whole days in a park?

Since that’s not an option (boo), we instead fill our free time with lovely photos of even lovelier couples enjoying the great outdoors.

While we stare longingly out the window, here are a few of our favorite shots of Arkansas Brides taking advantage of the gorgeous parks and gardens the Natural State has to offer.
