Brittany + Zach's Gorgeous Petit Jean Engagement Sesh

Erin Wilson Photography and Films

Brittany Knolkamper and Zach Jones met way back in 2015. Zach was a football player and Brittany was a softball player for the University of Louisiana. The two had a history class together, and Zach first noticed her one day when she came in late.

"I never would have thought being late that day could have led into the best thing that’s ever happened to me. That was also the last day we stopped paying attention in class. He worked up the courage to ask me out, and the rest was history."

After a gorgeous engagement at Crystal Bridges last fall, the two are ready to say their I Dos on Oct. 26, 2019, at Osage House in Cave Springs. 

Congrats, you two!

Tesori

Semi-annual Sample Sale / Nov. 30-Dec. 30

Fayetteville

Tesori has sliced the prices of their sample sale collection and we are here for it. Shop their inventory ranging from $100-$1,100. Before you go, there are a few things to know. 

    • The gowns will have been tried on by brides before, so expect minimal wear on the gowns you’re looking to buy. 
    • If you find a dress you love and are ready to purchase, you can buy and take home that day.

    • Most of the samples on the rack are a size 12 but are often easy to alter.

    • Tesori does not hold sale gowns so if you find “the one,” be prepared to purchase that day or you risk someone else buying it.

    • If you’re shopping the sample sale you do not need an appointment.

    • Tesori staff asks that you bring no more than two people with you.

    • During the week is less busy so Tesori staff recommends shopping on a week day.

    • Get excited because you are going to find amazing prices on designers such as Allure, Ti Adora, Blush, Hayley Paige, Allison Webb, Desiree Hartsock and Pronovias.

Hanna + Thomas' Incredible Park City, Utah Engagements

Erin Wilson Photography and Films

While Arkansas offers plenty of beautiful scenery, Little Rock native Hanna Hearnsberger and Clarksville native Thomas Plugge decided to travel back to Utah for their engagement session since it was where they got engaged. 

The two met at a party after they had graduated from college. Hanna remembers sitting across the room and asking "Who's that guy?" She introduced herself and it turns out they had mutual friends in college and Thomas had worked at her sorority house! 

"We started dating a year later after attending a weekend music festival with friends. Four years later, we got engaged in Utah and Thomas surprised me by bringing out both of our parents to witness it. We celebrated that day with snow skiing, dinner and drinks."

The couple currently lives in Salt Lake City, but are planning their wedding at The Grandeur house on March 28, 2020. 

Congrats, you two!
