I lived in Jonesboro when we started our planning process (recently moved to little rock). We picked our photog, Mauldin Photography, first. She is amazing to work with. She is from Newport, but has made trips to meet us in Jonesboro. Her work is beautiful, and her prices are very reasonable compared to others in the Jonesboro area, like Laird and Joey Glaub. We decided to do pies instead of cakes. However if you are doing cakes, Lou Greer Burns. Her cakes are amazing. I know she has a myspace page.I also know of a few venues in the area. Just let me know if you would like some info on those. HTH!!
