Hello Friends! I’m Diana, the heart behind Joy and Light Photography, based in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Today, I’m thrilled to share with you the intimate and emotionally rich micro wedding of Shani and Seth at the enchanting Fairlane Station in Springdale, AR.

The Essence of Micro Weddings

Micro weddings, like Shani and Seth’s, are truly special. Intentional and fully focused on what truly matters – love and intimacy. If you’re considering a wedding that’s more about heartfelt moments than big guest lists, a micro wedding could be perfect for you. It’s an opportunity to be surrounded by those who mean the most, in a setting that reflects your genuine emotions and desires.

Shani and Seth’s Magical Day – Micro Wedding at Fairlane Station

Shani and Seth’s day was a beautiful testament to their love. The couple chose Fairlane Station, a cozy venue that breathes romance and warmth, perfectly complementing their desire for a simple yet profound celebration. The back garden, where they held their ceremony, seats 225 and provided a dreamy backdrop to their vows. The chapel, seating 150, was filled with the soft light and echoes of laughter and promises.

The Venue: Fairlane Station

Fairlane Station is a gem in Springdale, AR, offering a blend of rustic charm and modern amenities. With a capacity of 225, it’s ideal for both intimate gatherings and slightly larger celebrations. The venue offers a variety of spaces including:

  • A fully furnished tavern.
  • An atmospheric chapel for ceremonies.
  • A charming downstairs dressing quarters.
  • A magical outdoor garden and covered back patio.

Rental prices are quite reasonable, ranging from $1700 to $2500, depending on the day of the week, plus a cleaning fee. The indoor space, extending to 3000 square feet, includes a sound system and a prep-space for caterers, though it’s important to note that it’s not a full kitchen. For those looking for an extra touch of luxury, the newly renovated bridal suite is available for an additional $500.
