A Wedding Planner’s Elegant Wedding in the Rolling Hills of Arkansas
Britt’s obsession with all things fall served as the jumping off point for her wedding theme. She wanted to bring together a day that represented the season with modern and elegant touches during her favorite month of the year, October.

Britt Jones Co. planned every detail, Zuzu's Petals created all of the amazing florals, linens were from House of Hough and rentals by Eventures for this special day at Osage House. You can see all the images in the full gallery.
She fell in love with the Osage House from the moment she saw it. The couple’s ceremony took place in the stunning chapel with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. “There truly was nothing like it in Northwest Arkansas,” she says. “To this day, every time I go in that chapel it completely takes my breath away.” Britt’s favorite part of the wedding design was the flowers.
Her bouquet by Zuzu's Petals had pure white orchids, lunaria, pampas grass, deep burgundy ranunculus, dried bunny tail and creamy roses. The flowers perfectly complemented her romantic long-sleeved lace Essense of Australia gown. To decorate the ceremony space, Britt worked with her florist to create a beautiful arch with pampas grass, greenery, hydrangeas, dusty roses and light pink anthurium. Letting the beauty of the chapel shine, Britt added just two other 6-foot tall gold candelabras at the altar and two arrangements at the beginning of the aisle.
The couple’s vision for the reception was to have food and drinks galore and lots of fun throughout the night. Britt’s mom works in food service and she created a massive 18-foot charcuterie board with gourmet cheese, crackers, dips, spreads, fruits and veggies for the cocktail hour. Guests danced to a mash-up of feel good music, 2000s hip hop hits and some ‘80s classics. At the end of the night, the couple drove off together in a white Jeep.
Looking back on her favorite moment of the day, Britt says it was the moment they locked eyes when she walked down the aisle. “Zach is the perfect person for me,” she says. “He is the most supportive and positive person I have ever met. We always push each other to be the best version of ourselves.”
