When you know, you know. That was the case for Arkansas natives Kelsey Hatcher and Weston Dacus. The two met after college, but they knew each other from playing sports for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. Weston and his 2-year-old daughter proposed to Kelsey on her front porch, asking her to marry them both and become a family.

The Inspiration

Kelsey and Weston wanted a casual, elegant feel to make their guests feel at home. Kelsey describes the overall theme as “urban organic,” with mixed metals and organic green and white florals. Moss Mountain Farm had always been a favorite of Kelsey’s, and it happened to make the perfect venue for the outdoor ceremony. Tanarah Luxe Florals created beautiful arrangements full of lush greenery and white roses.

How They Customized

Kelsey and Weston wanted to keep things simple. “I wanted the wedding to be about our family coming together, not all the fluff,” she says.

Only family attended the ceremony, making it even more meaningful for the couple. At the reception, Kelsey and Weston went with family-style fare. Each guest left with a custom-made candle, with a scent the couple loves to fill their home with.

Kelsey says her most worth-it splurge was her Vera Wang dress and veil from Stanley Korshak. And Kelsey’s father, Greg Hatcher, gave a wonderful father-of-the-bride speech during the reception that she says will always stay with her.
