Sunday, brides-to-be filled the Statehouse Convention Center for the Fall Bridal Show. While planning a wedding can be stressful, one couple won't let anything get in the way of their love for each other.
From bands to fashion and decorators, the Fall Bridal Show is a one-stop-shop for everything wedding-related.
"Brides get very stressed out when they have to plan a wedding, and this is really a place where they can come and they can plan a wedding in one day if they want to," says Tabitha Cunningham with the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
Billie Woods owns an event planning, design and decorating company.
"We feature chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate covered marshmallows, as well as a beautiful display. Again, we want to be affordable for most of the brides because they're excited, and everyone's working on a very tight budget," says Woods.
Kenbria Robinson met her fiance Kendell Summons in high school. They started dating sophomore year. While her parents are paying for their wedding, they still wanted to see what the vendors have to offer.
"Just to get ideas and to know what we're looking at. Since we' ve never been married before. It's the first time around, so we're going to make it the last and final time," says Robinson.
The couple came in second place in a competition Sunday for a free wedding day photo shoot. But, according to Kendell, their love is second to none.
"I decided to propose to her because I feel she's my better half, I mean, she completes me. She fulfills my every desire, my every need, so what crazy man would let that go by? You have to have that in your life. You need that," says Summons.
"I love him so much. He's my best friend," says Robinson.
"I love you, too," said Summons.
Organizers tell us 1500 people walked through the doors Sunday. Every bride got to take home a special bridal planner and wedding magazine.
