Coral + Michael | Total Solar Eclipse Wedding – Anedodi, Mt Home AR

In the serene heights of the Ozark Mountains, overlooking the tranquil waters of Lake Norfolk, Coral and Michael’s love story eclipsed all others. Traveling from Massachusetts to the heart of Arkansas, they exchanged their vows in an intimate spring celebration at Anedodi, surrounded by their favorite people. This was an extraordinary wedding that I’ve been looking forward to.

Their day was marked not only by the joining of hearts and families but also by the cosmic spectacle of a total solar eclipse, a breathtaking moment mirroring the rare and profound love they share. Love, like an eclipse, is a rare alignment, an extraordinary event that reminds us that while the universe is vast, finding your true counterpart in its expanse is something truly celestial.

As the day unfolded, I was welcomed by the delightful chaos that comes with every wedding. Upstairs, Coral was a vision of beauty, preparing the final touches with excitement. Their adorable pup, Mazu,  playfully navigated the flurry of preparations. Downstairs, amidst the laughter and camaraderie and a few drinks, Michael was finishing getting ready.  Unfortunately, Michael was injured a week before the wedding, forcing him to don a leg brace and crutches. Despite this unexpected twist – it couldn’t dampen his spirits — and nothing would stand in his way of meeting his bride at the altar.

The first look was tender under the sheltering deck, a private moment for Coral and Michael before the remaining whirlwinds of celebration began. Soon, their loved ones made their way to the altar. As they stood hand in hand, their family and friends encircled them with warmth, their union sealed with a kiss under the darkening sky as the eclipse reached totality, a stunning background to this once-in-a-lifetime event

The reception was a joyful affair. A delicious lunch was savored, and speeches were shared with laughter and heartfelt emotion. And in a splash of spontaneity after portraits were complete, the bridal party dove into the pool, dresses and all. The rest of the afternoon was filled with drinks, dessert, and dancing as everyone enjoyed this laid-back reception.

Coral and Michael, it was an honor to capture the moments that will tell the story of your day under the eclipsed sun for years to come. Enjoy this tiny peek back at your day. There is SOOO much more to come!!  May your lives together be as unique and awe-inspiring as the celestial event that graced your wedding day. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your journey.

Lots of Love,
