A Fayetteville Arkansas Wedding at Teatro Scarpino | Austin & Tom

Although the rain was heavy and the clouds dark, nothing would stop Austin from seeing her groom. So picking up the sides of her dress, she made her way outside, around the corner of the building, and right up to the one person who mattered most on her wedding day. And when she put her arms around him, everything else faded away and all was suddenly right in the world.

Austin and Tom were married at Good Shepard Lutheran Church in Fayetteville Arkansas with a beautiful reception following at Scarpintino's. Lucas and I were honored to document it, and even more honored to spend the day with such wonderful people who know how to truly love others. Austin and Tom, I absolutely cannot wait to see where life takes you, and your friendship and trust means the world to me.

A few days before the wedding, I noticed that Tom wrote a few words online in anticipation, and it brought tears to my eyes as I read them. I thought it only fitting to include them here, as I couldn't imagine a better way to sum up such a beautiful day:

...She is nothing like who I expected I would marry some day. God truly knows what we need better than we do. I would never in a million years have expected to marry someone like Austin, but she is so much more than I expected. My life has already been so much better with her in it, and I cannot wait to see what more God has in store for us. He has worked us together, and I cannot believe that He is letting me marry His daughter. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with her. My expectations were nothing compared with who she is. I'm so honored to be becoming a part of her family, and to be having her become my wife. She is beautiful, smart, fun, Godly, and all around wonderful.
She is the most amazing woman I know.
