Laura and Matt’s wedding at Houmas House

Laura and Matt’s wedding at Houmas House.

Before their big day, we asked Laura to share her vision for her wedding with us.  Here’s what she had to say:

From day one, Matt & I knew we wanted something very romantic & whimsical, and a ceremony that definitely took place in the outdoors. When we found our venue, The Houmas House Plantation, it was the easiest decision we have had to make thus far. With the lush gardens and the beautiful oak lined front lawn, we knew it was exactly what we wanted for our special day. After choosing the venue, everything else just fell into place.

We wanted to keep the ceremony simple, but added a touch of romantic lighting by adding 8 tall lanterns with column candles inside.
When deciding on decor for the reception, Pinterest came to the rescue. I’ve been planning my dream wedding for the past 7 years we have been together so the floral arrangements and decor weren’t a difficult task for me. We chose to do whimsical arrangements on both the entrance tables & the buffet tables with baby’s breath, curly willow, and blush & ivory roses. For the guest tables we did a mixture of lanterns, candles & rose pedals, as well as floral arrangements similar to my bouquet.

For the reception, the band was it for us! Without a doubt we wanted a band that was going to bring both our families together for a night they would never forget, and I think we will definitely accomplish that & much more with Groovy 7. We can’t wait to dance the night away & share our love with all of our friends and family.”

Kisatchie Family Photo Adventures, 4 sessions available now!

Kisatchie National Forest – The Longleaf Vista between Alexandria and Natchitoches is one of our favorite areas in Louisiana.  The terrain is very unique for Louisiana, with limestone rock formations, beautiful forests trails, a small cave opening, and a rocky bottom stream that often has a few small waterfalls.  We want to take you and your family (or you and your love) on a  family photo adventure to create amazing portraits of you in the majesty of Kisatchie.  We’ve opened up 4 sessions on a few upcoming Saturdays.   The spots are not far from the road, so we’ll spend a good bit of time in air conditioned vehicles, so heat shouldn’t be an issue-  and if it is, we’ll just jump in the water together for some really fun images!

These sessions can be used by families (including pets!!!), couples, or even an adventurous bride!  The goal of these sessions is to create beautiful wall art for your home.  We want to create memories with you and your family that you can proudly display in your home.  We have 4 sessions available now.  Each session is $450. This fee includes the session time (around 2 hours), and a $250 print credit towards your wall art purchase.

Q. What inspired your style for the wedding day
A. Kate Spade meets J Crew describes my style exactly. I have an obsession with bows, and you’ll often find me in an oxford button down with leggings and flats, which is the J Crew in me. These two styles are a perfect mix of being relaxed, yet polished. The navy blue and white stripes brings out the preppy side in both Matthew and I.

Q. What inspired your cake
A. I knew I didnt want just one cake, after seeing all the amazing cake flavors Pure Cake has. I have always loved multiple cake displays, so I am pretty excited about there being 5 (yes 5) cakes displayed. With three different amazing flavors. Cake tasting is a fun memory for us as Matthew said in the beginning that’s all he could think about. After our first cake tasting in New Orleans, he was so sick he said he never wanted to have cake again. So I think getting five cakes is fitting, for him especially (ha!)
