Something I’ve noticed more recently with my brides and grooms is the unwavering level of support they have surrounding them on their day. This isn’t to say that some I’ve photographed have not, just that lately, this particular thing has set a certain tone for the weddings we’ve been photographing. Beth and Jacob’s large wedding party was just that–full of life and love for the two of them. In fact, the entire wedding party kind of seemed like one big family. What can you say? That’s kind of how we do it here in the South…

Classic New Orleans, simple and clean details, and a little bling were some of my favorite parts of Beth and Jacob’s day. Everything was in the French Quarter and had such a homey New Orleans feel. To make it a little sweeter, the staff at Riverview Room were just phenomenal, to us as well as the guests.

Here are a few of the vendors and locations that helped make Beth’s vision come to life…

Ceremony: St. Mary’s Catholic Church

We had a large chance for rain that day, but graciously it held off and we were able to do all of the photos outside like we had originally planned. The skies were perfect, the light was perfect, and most importantly, Beth was perfect.

Despite the head, Jacob was such a trooper in his many layers of stylish formal attire as he waited to hear his bride’s voice behind him.2014-07-23_0039 2014-07-23_00382014-07-23_00352014-07-23_00412014-07-23_0034

Beth and Jacob allowed me full discretion when it came to the creative nature of their photos, which really allowed us to utilize our photo time in the most productive way possible to create a curated collection. Additionally, Preston was unable to shoot this wedding with me due to military obligations, so I had the absolute PLEASURE of my ever-creative photog friend, Desiree shoot with me. It was a nice change of pace and her artistic capacity just blows my mind and speaks volumes to my soul. We worked, chatted, and bounced creative ideas off of each other all day long.


St. Mary’s is just breathtaking…
