Katie + Joe: A Rock ‘n Roll Arkansas Wedding by Liz Chrisman
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Watch out!  Katie and Joe’s rock ‘n roll real wedding is one for the books. These two meant business when they set out to plan a retro-inspired event featuring polka-dot everything (Katie’s favorite) and Joe’s perfectly suited, graphic design paper goods.  The pair poured themselves into planning and with the help of the team at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch, their dream wedding was brought to life! Photographer Liz Chrisman says, ‘Katie and Joe march to the beat of their own drum, and that was most definitely reflected in their off-beat, fun, rockabilly wedding.’  We couldn’t agree more!

Katie’s passion for polka dots started with the bridal party attire.  From the wedding dress to the bridesmaid’s frocks, all of their vintage-chic attire was sourced from Etsy designer Pixie Pocket.  As for the invites, the very talented groom whipped up these rock ‘n roll paper goods in black and red to set the tone.

Of the ceremony, Katie says, ‘A moment that will always be special to me was while we were saying our vows. All day long it was supposed to rain. The sky was gray and the sun was hidden. I was terrified that this would be the death of my dream outdoor wedding.  Of course the barn had planned an inside move if needed, but I was still nervous. The rain held off and when it finally started to drizzle while Joe and I were exchanging our vows under the arbor, the rain sprinkled in a perfect circle around us. The trees were shaking off collected drops in such a manner that it looked planned! After the trees cleared their branches, the sun jumped out from behind a cloud and shined right on us. It was seriously like something out of a movie.  Although we had dated for six years prior to our wedding, this was proof that rain or shine- we were meant to be together.’
