Truc and Doan’s Pre Wedding Portraits at Race and Religious

Wedding Gown:  Lazaro

Location:  Race and Religious

How did you two meet?  Doan and I first met in the third grade. It was during rehearsal for our first holy communion. The girls and boys sat on opposite sides of the church and because Doan and I were both shorties at the time, we were placed to sit on the front row of our section directly facing each other. So we couldn’t help but to stare at each other. I guess you can say it was love at first sight! We grew to become good friends and ended up going to the same grade school. Once we reached high school Doan officially asked me to be his girlfriend! and it’s been amazing ever since!

Truc and Doan’s Pre Wedding Portraits at Race and Religious

Ashley and Brandon get married at St Patrick’s Church in New Orleans, then celebrate at the Loews


When we have a couple that wants to get married at St Patrick’s Church in New Orleans,  our heart skips a beat.  St. Patrick’s is truly one of the most beautiful churches in New Orleans.   We asked Ashley what inspired her wedding,  and her answer is a classic:  “Kate Middleton meets Lauren Conrad… at a ridiculously lively after-party! :)”    We loved this couple so much-  and it’s obvious that their friends and family do as well, as you’ll see from the images of their reception at the Loew’s.
