Here are fun facts for everyone getting married in Arkansas.
Crater of Diamonds State Park has a natural diamond field, and way back in 1924, a massive diamond was found there that was almost 41 carats—talk about a girl’s best friend!
Seems fitting that Arkansas has a “state gem” like other places have state flowers… of course, that gem is a diamond in Arkansas!
I figured that naming the capital city Little Rock had to do with diamonds. But apparently, French settlers named Little Rock (La Petite Roche) because of a small rock formation in the river that served as a navigational beacon.
You’ve got your ring and know where you are—beautiful Arkansas! We looked and found the best wedding photographers in Arkansas just for you.
