Kris is a Texan from Ft. Worth and Billea is an Okie from Tulsa. Early in their relationship, they took a trip to Eureka Springs and had the time of their lives. Billea's parents also honeymooned there 35 years ago! So for them, it was an obvious choice for a fun destination wedding. They also truly love the town and wanted to share its unique charm with their friends and family! Their vision for for their wedding included in part a tribute to their past and the families and friends who have helped shape the people they’ve become. That image also captures who they intend to become (covers-sharing, fun-having, love-giving folks). We started the day out with Billea at Manor House Cottage in Eureka Springs. After the ladies had a chance to relax a bit, Billea slipped into her STUNNING dress. Billea and her father, Billy, had a first look on the porch of the Manor. It was perfect and emotional. After the first look we moved over to the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa. A member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa is a mountaintop spa resort known widely as Arkansas’ symbol of hospitality. Surrounded by 15 acres of pristine woodlands, the hotel has an impressive history that has been thoughtfully preserved while providing modern comforts.
