Oh, what a FUN wedding this was and we are SO excited to share with y’all today! Andrew Hankins & Laura Minkiewitz planned their destination wedding right here in our home state of Arkansas. Andrew & Laura love traveling around the country visiting all of the National State Parks, so Hot Springs National Park was the perfect location for this Washington State & Washington D.C. couple & their families! We love how the even used this theme through their wedding reception! Such cute details! These two thought about every little detail of their day, and definitely made it their own! It’s not every day we have brides wanting to surprise their groom with a dinosaur costume for their first look… yes, you read that right! Laura wanted to make Andrew laugh to ease any wedding day nerves, and she definitely succeeded in that! Even their wedding ceremony had a unique twist! Andrew & Laura didn’t want an officiant to perform their ceremony, but chose to have a self solemnizing ceremony in the style of a Quaker marriage ceremony. We really loved this! It was just two people committing their lives to one another, making promises, and confessing their love to one another before all their family & friends.
We are so thankful that Andrew & Laura chose us to be a long for this adventure & to capture these beautiful moments for them! We hope y’all enjoy a few of our favorites from their wedding day!
