From "Sigma Nu?"

to "I Do"

Hailey & Carter


How They Met

Hailey and Carter met at the University of Arkansas’ weekly Volunteer Action Center Board meetings. Hailey was so immediately interested in Carter that at the end of their first meeting together she went up to him and casually asked, “Oh, are you a Sigma Nu?” Asking this question was just the start for this couple. Hailey and Carter later found out they had many common friends. After an awkward encounter to get to know each other, they added each other on Snapchat and have not stopped talking ever since. From that moment on their life has been nothing but endless fun and happiness. 


The Inspiration

For Hailey & Carter, Amanda Reed was absolutely the wedding planner for them.  Her taste and experience are unmatched and she truly was able to make this couple feel like their special day was her top priority. “Now that the wedding is over, I miss interacting with her for what previously felt like every day.”

“We wanted our wedding to be fun and a day that people could look back on and see how appreciated they were to us. The fun came from the color scheme and all the different textures used along with the personalization from all the small details that represented us.”

To complement the couple’s want for an endless fun experience, Plush Party Band set the tone perfectly for the whole night, making sure the dance floor was never empty.


Unique Elements

Hailey & Carter included a disco ball feature throughout their wedding including disco ball floral installations along with their shared monogram throughout on throw pillows, wax seals, and more. Another special element this couple had was their drinks. Instead of a groom’s cake, they chose to do an Irish coffee bar along with having custom cocktails at each bar with personalized drink decor.


Words of Advice

“Trust the people you hire! They are professionals for a reason and if you pick good people that you mesh with, the rest will fall into place. At the end of the day, you are marrying the person you love most and that’s all that matters.”
