Peyton + Chase's Garden Engagement Sesh

Erin Wilson Photography

North Little Rock native Peyton Brazear and Little Rock native Chase Barnes grew up just minutes away from each other. They were introduced in September 2016, and Peyton says it felt strange that they hadn't met sooner. The two will tie the knot at the Clinton Presidential Center in March 2019.

Here's their love story in Peyton's words: 

"Chase sent me a photo one afternoon in December as he made his way home from hunting. It was a photo of a puppy on the side of the road that was obviously neglected. I remember thinking to myself that this would be the deal breaker — if he rescued the dog, then he was definitely the one for me. Who would leave a neglected puppy on the side of the road, anyway? Minutes later, Chase sent a photo of Ridge in the front seat and said: 'We're headed home!' Almost fifteen months later, Chase proposed on Easter while we were at the river with our lab, Macy. She retrieved a white bumper with 'Marry Me?' written across the front and we have been ecstatic ever since!"

Congrats, lovebirds!

Alex + Brad's Fairytale Engagement

Key Moments Photography

We hear about a lot of fairytale romances at Arkansas Bride, but Alex Rankin of Quitman and Brad Bennett of Springhill, Missouri, share a sweet story. 

Here's the tale in Alex's words:

Our parents graduated from Quitman together. My mom, his mom and dad, they were all friends. They've known each other practically their whole lives. His parents moved to Mississippi after they graduated high school, and that's where they raised Brad and his siblings. They always wanted to move back to Arkansas, and when they finally did, Brad stayed in Mississippi for a job opportunity. A car accident and a broken neck brought Brad back to Arkansas to be cared for by his family in March 2017. Shortly after, they all came to my brother's football game. I was invited to their house the next day for a cookout, and we've been together ever since. Brad proposed four short months later!

Alex and Brad will marry at Pine Mountain in Quitman on Sept. 29, 2018, but for now, we can enjoy their adorable engagement photos from Brandi Schulz of Key Moments Photography.

Amanda + Michael's Gorgeous Outdoor Engagement Session

Shelby Seaber

College sweethearts Amanda Moran and Michael Roberts have built a life in Bentonville, and now they're tying the knot! The couple will marry on May 11, 2019, at the Hunt Chapel with a reception following at the Record Downtown.

Here's the love story from Amanda:

"Michael and I met while attending the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Michael was one of the first people I met after transferring from a college in Georgia. We met at Hill Place apartments and were inseparable the entire summer of my sophomore year. Michael soon graduated and began working in the supplier community in Bentonville. Once I graduated, I began working at the Sam's Club home office in various buyer roles. Michael started working there a few years later, and now everyone thinks that's how we met! We absolutely love the beauty and vibe of Northwest Arkansas, with a lot of time spent at the Bentonville Farmer's Market or in downtown Eureka Springs. We are homeowners in Bentonville with two corgis, Sprinkle and Franklin."

Photographer Shelby Seaber caught the couple in dance after dance after dance in these adorable engagement pics.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Myranda Randle Photography

A wedding is such a special time, and you want to share that with the people you love. Conway twins Palmer and Micah Archer are taking that to the next level with a double wedding scheduled for Oct. 6 at Cold Springs.

The story from Myranda Randle (Grulke) of Myranda Randle Photography:

"They both got engaged around the same time, and instead of having separate weddings, they decided to share their special day with each other and have a double wedding."

We adore Palmer Archer and Cody Walker's artistic engagement session below, but we also love the surprise cameo from Micah Archer and her fiance Calvin Jones. We can't wait to see this amazing Arkansas double wedding!
