Michelle and Jason were wed on September 12, 2020 on a warm fall day at Rusty Tractor Vineyards in Little Rock, Arkansas with Kaitie Gill of Sailboat Weddings as their wedding planner.  In a sea of navy, ivory and sage, these two could not have looked more perfect together under the beautiful vineyard sunset.  We love working with foodie couples and Michelle and Jason are a perfect example of that.  They really focused on the cuisine for their guests, so be sure to check out their delicious wedding menu, below.  

 “When the best man gave his speech, he said something I will never forget and could not be more fitting for this couple.  He said, ‘There’s always going to be people who talk about who married up and who married down, but in the case you both married the best for each other,” says Kaitie Gill with Sailboat Weddings.
