Gatsby on Oak Fall Wedding Sneak Peek


It’s time to celebrate, friends – Arica and Sami are married! These two had the most beautiful Gatsby on Oak fall wedding last weekend, and we absolutely cannot wait to share more with you from our time together! 

A candid black and white picture of a groom reading his vows to his bride as she smiles at him during their intimate wedding ceremony in Kansas City.

Like so many other couples, Arica and Sami met online (Bumble, specifically). They knew they had something special when they closed the Boulevard Beer Hall down on their first date and had to move to Ponak’s to catch a late dinner. (Also – talk about one of our favorite date nights!) 

Fast forward to Christmas Eve of 2020, and Sami somehow managed to drag Arica out of their nice, cozy house to the Scout Statue. Little did she know, he had plans to propose to her here. It’s one of his favorite places in the city, and these two even named one of their dogs after the statue (Scout!). 

Lucky for Sami, Arica loves him to the moon and back (especially his cooking), and said yes when he popped the question. 

And their super intimate, super unique Irish-Lebanese wedding day? Friends. It was full of so many of their loved ones celebrating their love, so much laughter, so many new and old traditions, and so much love. Family and friends – we can only imagine how excited you are to see more from Sami and Arica! Feel free to pre-register to see their full gallery when it’s released in just a few short weeks!
