Featured: Catherine + Sean with PenWeddings Filming

Hello on this sligtly sunny Sunday morning here in England. We wanted to share with you a darling event that was filmed by the amazing PenWeddings - wedding films with such personality. As southern belles originating from the USA, we relish in a good southern styled wedding! Which brings us to introduce Catherine + Sean who married at Cooper Chapel (this chapel with take your breath away!) Our favorite part? The cheeky reception. Have a look for yourself.

From Sarah of PenWeddings:

“This is the Traylor-Parks wedding. Yes, those are their real names. And Catherine and Sean took full advantage of this coincidence, using an Airstream trailer as the bar for their adorable backyard reception. There ceremony was held at the stunning Mildred B. Cooper chapel in Bella Vista, Arkansas, created by renowned Arkansas architect E Fay Jones. Although it’s not far from the nearest highway, once you’ve walked the meandering path through the trees to the chapel, you feel as though you’ve left the world behind. We were so thrilled that Catherine and Sean set aside time after the ceremony to take photos by the water, in a field, and at a neighbor’s barn, too. They finished the night with an adorable reception at Catherine’s parents’ house. Wooden signs directed guests to the “out house” and cocktail hour on the front lawn. Beautiful arrangements of bottles, flowers and tree stumps awaited guests at their tables, along with their favors of honey and tea. The Southern cooking was to die for, and the dancing seemed like it would never end. Nothing could have made this day better, other than maybe a 20-degree drop in temperature. I can’t say enough about what a fabulous day it was.”
