Last night I received a phone call from my brother letting me know that I had a new sister. My brother Gary and his fiancée Karen got married this weekend.
They were married in what is considered by many to be one of the most scenic areas of the country, the Richland Creek Wilderness Area in Northwest Arkansas.
Here is Falling Beauty Waterfall, which is near where they parked. I have seen pictures of this waterfall with a much higher volume of water and it is very beautiful. I also think that it is beautiful the way it is here in this picture.
Karen told me that they had to hike for two miles to get to where they held the ceremony. It took them two hours to get there as it was over very treacherous terrain.
From the pictures that my brother posted on Facebook, I can see why this is considered to be one of the most scenic areas. I really liked this picture with the patch along the creek and the trees reflected in the water.
Thanks for letting me share them.
Here is their beautiful little wedding cake. No big wedding cake for them as they had to carry everything with them through the woods. Plus, they had a very, very small wedding party.
Here is the bouquet. You will see it in a few more pictures, so here is a nice close look at it. I really like the roses in the bouquet.
Here are Karen and Gary picking their way along a cliff. You can see that the terrain is not the easiest to traverse. Karen had a very long aisle to walk down with her bouquet.
I can just imagine how beautiful the hike must have been. I can imagine the smells of the forest and river and the sounds of the birds and rustling leaves along with the water flowing over the rocks.
In the bottom corner of this picture you can see the bouquet making another appearance.
They finally reached their destination.
Twin Falls at Devil’s Fork is definitely a scenic location. The falls come from two creeks that join together here in this pool.
What a beautiful spot for their wedding ceremony.
I can imagine the peaceful sounds of nature that are only broken by the words of the ceremony.
Now for one final picture. Here is the happy couple holding a Just Married sign.
My brother is a geocacher, disc golf fanatic, bike rider and spelunker so I am not surprised at their choice for a wedding location. I should have him write some guest posts about some of his wanderings.
Of course, the fun was not over. They then had to make the two mile trek back through the woods to where they parked.
Congratulations to Gary and Karen!
