Leila + Ernesto
Beckham Creek Cave Lodge Wedding
When it comes to destination weddings, you don't have to go very far, nor do you need to spend a fortune. In fact, believe it or not, Arkansas holds a lot of hidden gems, and they're just waiting to be discovered. Take Beckham Creek Cave Lodge for an example!
Beckham Creek Cave Lodge is located in Parthenon, which is a little community in Newton County, Arkansas. Here is one of the most beautiful places to get married that you will ever see. It's an actual cave (yes, you read that right, a real living cave) that has been transformed into a stunning lodge that comfortably sleeps over eight people. Outside the lodge is a gorgeous rock backdrop that makes for the perfect place for an intimate ceremony site. It's like a dream come true for anyone looking for something truly unique and memorable!
Leila and Ernesto are a beautiful couple and are totally natural in front of the camera. They made posing so easy!!
Leila and I go way back, having grown up together as sisters from different mothers and living in the same house for a while. Oh, the stories I could tell if I had the time to sit down and write, and maybe someday I will do just that! But for now, I can say that in many ways, I was shaped into the person I am currently from the time she and I were children together.
It was fascinating to get to be part of this day and watch this special couple promise themselves to each other for life! I feel so blessed to have been given the privilege to witness such special days and moments of my couples. I genuinely have the best job in the world!
Leila and Ernesto chose to read their own vows that they had written, which is just one of the many ways they were able to make this day so special.
They also had a first look not far from the lodge at a place called The Eye of the Needle, and that was just what it looked like! The rocks were arched just like a head of a needle (see photos!!)
I could go on and on about this amazing day, but I will just let the photos do the talking. After all, that is what photography is all about, reliving a day, one image at a time.
