Autumn-Inspired Wedding Inspo with the Perfect Touch of Velvet

Natalie Smith Photography

Autumn in Arkansas is hands down one of the best times in The Natural State. We love how photographer Natalie Smith highlighted Arkansas' natural good looks with gorgeous florals and an unexpected pop of pink.

Here are a few of our favorite things:

  • Those stunning florals mixed with Arkansas' natural beauty.
  • The romantic lighting courtesy of the lovely multicolored candlesticks.
  • The beautiful place settings. 
  • The perfect touch of velvet on the table.
