Monochromatic Moss Mountain Wedding
Hannah and Koby’s wedding is a vision of minimal monochromatic luxury style. Full of timeless details (check out their vow books!) and I can't help but gravitate towards their Vanity Fair style bridal party portrait (anyone else LOVING this trend for photographing your bridal party?!). Here's photographer Erin Wilson Photography with all the details of this luxury wedding...
"Hannah, the bride, is a film photographer herself and when she inquired with me at the very beginning she had her heart set on me photographing her entire wedding on film. Hannah studied abroad in Italy and fell in love with Italian culture and that heavily influenced their wedding style. They first chose Moss Mountain Farms as the setting and location for their beautiful wedding. The gardens are full and lush and have the most beautiful views. The ceremony was located in the rose garden of Moss Mountain, afterwards guests wandered the property having cocktail hour and then ending the evening under the large oak tree that sits front in center in front of the property. It was a perfect day filled with love, gorgeous smells from the garden and twinkly lights lit the evening as they celebrated. Hannah wanted to incorporate some Italian traditions and details like having the bridesmaids wear all white and the groomsmen wearing black tuxes. They served Italian Food and cannoli for dessert. They had live music play off the front porch of the beautiful southern home that sits center of the property and danced under the twinkle of the lights. It was a site to see and I loved all the minimal style details, the luxury feel and the view was just incredible. Hannah and Koby are incredibly kind and deserving and I absolutely loved their wedding and getting to know them."
Hannah and Koby met in 2009 at a livestock show. With 382 miles separating their hometowns and barely old enough to drive, they saw one another a few times a year at livestock shows and also during Skype dates. They continued their long distance relationship for a few years until they both attended the same college in Lubbock at Texas Tech University. Koby graduated in 2015 and moved seven hours away to begin his career, while Hannah had two years left to graduate. Long distance dating struck again, however, their love for one another stood the test of time. During Hannah’s senior year of college, Koby proposed on Christmas Day. Hannah graduated from Texas Tech in May 2017 and they were then married on September 30. They have put an end to long distance dating forever and could not be happier!
P Allen Smith of PBS’ Television Show Garden Home owns and created Moss Mountain Farm in Roland, Arkansas. Hannah’s mother is a huge fan of the show. When Hannah mentioned the venue as a potential option her mother was ecstatic. She immediately searched through her DVR to show Hannah the latest taping of the show. A few days later Hannah and her what would soon to be mother-in-law visited the venue and immediately knew they had arrived at the final decision. The moment they stepped onto the property they were warmly greeted with beautiful views. They were captivated by the beauty of the sweeping vistas of the Arkansas River valley, orchards, perfectly curated gardens and rose conservancies. They loved that florals and decorations would be minimal and that the property would give guests an “experience”. This experience would showcase all that the property had to offer by having their wedding welcome gathering at the Eagle Fountain, a tour to the Rose Garden for the ceremony led by a violinist, cocktail hour in the East Garden and the reception under the ‘Big Sister’ oak tree. Hannah and her mother-in-law felt like they were in a dream and they would choose this venue 100x over again!
Koby and Hannah wanted to have an intimate celebration with 70 guests in Arkansas. Their wedding had a minimalistic luxurious style with an Italian influence. Hannah studied abroad and lived with a host family in a rural agricultural town named Tuscania. She was inspired by their minimal (but beautiful) and relational way of living. She wanted to incorporate that into their wedding by: lavender seed gift bags, cannoli’s for dessert, acoustic singing, bridesmaids in white, both her mom and dad walking her down the aisle, and all white flowers. Most importantly, their vision for the wedding was for each person on the property—from the staff to the makeup artist to feel loved.
