Mallory's Marlsgate Plantation Bridal Portraits | Lush Gardens and a Lakeside Sunset

Honestly, I don't even know where to begin with this. I've been a part of Mallory and Karl's wedding plans for over a year now... and it's kind of surreal that the wedding was this weekend and we're closing the door on this chapter of life together. I can't even express how great of an honor it was to be on this journey with them... from our first coffee date early this year to eating dinner on the floor of our apartment (because we STILL haven't bought extra chairs for our two-person table) as we said goodbye to a mutual friend moving away. These two just mean so very much to me, and while I'm excited to share their wedding images in a couple of days, I'm also incredibly thrilled to share Mallory's bridal portraits today!
We met up for her Marlsgate Plantation bridal portraits in Scott, Arkansas about a month ago, and even though it was hot and everyone got completely eaten up by mosquitoes, Mallory was such a trooper and never complained once!
The end result was absolutely, completely worth it-- Mallory looked like a princess, and Marlsgate was the perfect backdrop for photographs that look like they are straight out of a fairytale.
