Sweet Southern Ice Tea and a Dash of Scottish Whiskey: Kristin + Paul´s Wedding in Arkansas

A man from the Highlands of Scotland marries a Southern Belle in the beautifully historic Terry House in Arkansas. Full of Southern charm and (we hope) whiskey, this wedding is a beautiful blend of cultures.

There are three things we love about Scotland and the South. The top two are whisky and whiskey, and the third is this perfectly blended wedding of a Southern Belle and a Scottish race car builder. Andrew and Kaycie of Luv Rox Photography captured all the charm of this sweet Southern rustic wedding highlighted with touches of Scottish traditions and we think it´s absolutely lovely.

How did you two meet?
Kristin: Paul and I met at a mutual friends birthday dinner. Both of us inquired about each other and six months later we finally went on our first date. Three years later he took me on a trip to Glasgow, Scotland (where he is from) and there he proposed. We were married three months later.

Who was in charge of the decor?
Kristin: the flowers were done by a local florist, Courtney Pigg Florals and decorations were by Jenny Malara.  They did a wonderful job incorporating the southern charm for me (the bride) and tid-bits of Scottish tradition for Paul (the groom). For example, they included heather that lined the aisle.  Jenny even took care of the small details like attaching a silver coin to my shoe for good luck (another Scottish tradition)!

Any additional advice for future brides?
Kristin: my word of advice for those planning weddings is to ENJOY it!  Don’t sweat the small stuff and remember the what the ultimate goal of the whole event is. I loved planning my wedding in just a couple months and would recommend it to everyone! I didn’t have time to second guess everything and change my mind again and again.  I went with my first instinct and everything turned out amazing.
