Laura Sessoms & Ben Grimes were married at the Terry House in Little Rock. As a bridal stylist, Laura had insider insight when it came to planning her own wedding. This real wedding is full of unique and personal touches, and a nature-inspired theme based on Ben’s pet name for Laura, “bird.” Take a look. You won’t be disappointed!! These beautiful images were taken by Punam Bean Photography.
The bride wore a custom dress by New York designer Janet Nelson Kumar that included a navy satin belt. The blue and green hues of hydrangeas, sedum and Dusty Miller leaves created a unique bouquet.
A variety of birdhouses topped each table, many found at flea markets scoured during road trips between the cities where the couple resided during their engagement.
Laura and her father used blue Ball jars, green river stones, votive candles and navy ribbon to create lanterns that lined the aisle.
With all the navy accents, Laura had multiple “something blues,” including her satin heels. A vintage handkerchief emblazoned with an Arkansas map wrapped the stems of her bouquet.
Each bridesmaid carried a different bouquet of a single type of blue or green flower-thistle, hydrangea and more- with miniature bird nests inset. Vintage handkerchiefs wrapped the stems and sported each bridesmaid’s monogram.
A custom-made pair of lovebirds ordered via Red Light Studio on Etsy was detailed to resemble the happy couple and adorned a monogrammed layer cake.Wedding Sources Photography Punam Bean, punambean.com Ceremony, reception The Terry House, Little Rock Cake Mickey’s Special Affairs, Little Rock Catering Simply the Best Catering, North Little Rock Entertainment Central Arkansas Entertainment, Benton Flowers Fairy Tale Florals, North Little Rock Makeup Tess Wilmans-Higgins, Glo Limited, Little Rock Rentals Party Time Rentals, Little Rock
