Steph Smith Weddings

A letter from the assistant editor: 

I joined the Arkansas Bride team in February, right at the beginning of venues reopening and brides getting back on track with planning their big days. In the year I have worked for this wonderful magazine, I have seen such an array of interesting and unique takes on what it means to have the "perfect" wedding. In my humble opinion, the weddings that always "wow" the most are the ones that incorporate the most personal and romantic touches.

The weddings that are the most wonderful are the ones that are the most "you." 

Here, we have collected some of our favorite weddings we've included in print and online in 2021. These couples and planners did a particularly fantastic job of making the wedding unique and heartfelt. We applaud the work of everyone who poured their time and talents into these weddings. 

Thanks for such a wonderful year, 

Beth Dedman
