Erin and Edward, married at Southern Oaks

Erin and Edward traveled home from Connecticut to get married in Edward’s hometown of New Orleans.  It was such a perfect day for a beautiful couple to get married!  We loved working with them and can’t wait to share these images with you.

A little about Erin and Edward’s story:


  • Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details! 
    A. The proposal was perfect! A couple of weeks before he told me that some of his investors were coming into town and that we were going to take them out to dinner (very typical for us.) I get dressed up and go to the restaurant and when I got there Eddie was waiting for me outside (again very typical.) I walk to the back of the restaurant and I noticed everyone sitting at the dinner table with their menus covering their faces, which I thought was very strange until I noticed my father, then my mother and sisters and a couple of friends and I immediately start crying! It took a second for everything to sink in and for me to realize what was going on. I then looked over at Eddie who had a HUGE grin on his face and he takes my hand and proceeds to make a speech about his love for me and how excited he is to spend the rest of his life with his best friend (meanwhile my face is covered in tears.) He then gets down on one knee and says “baby will you please marry me?!” I of course say yes! 

    The restaurant he chose was where we had our first Valentines Day dinner at. It’s a small restaurant owned by a sweet husband and wife couple. The food is fantastic and the ambiance is unforgettable! Everything was absolutely perfect and I still can’t believe that he pulled that off without me having the slightest idea!

Bethany and Matt’s Wedding Part 2

I’m really excited to bring part 2 of Bethany and Matt’s beautiful backyard wedding to the blog.  I thought I’d share a little more of their story with this post as well. Enjoy!

Q. How did you meet and how long have you been together ?
A. Matt and I went to the same school for a few years, but we really met through my brother in law, as they are best friends. Matt used to always tell my sister that he was going to marry me, before we had even had a conversation!
After my sisters wedding, which Matt and I walked in together, he persistently asked me out, to which I said no many times, because he was about to leave for the military! About 6 months later I said yes and I am so glad I did!
We have been together for 4 years!Q. Where did you go on your first date?

Q. Where did you go on your first date? 

A. We don’t remember our first official date but the first time just him and I really hung out was at a UL football game. We ended up playing kick the rock for a while and had a blast. It doesn’t take much to entertain us!
Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details! 
A. It was Friday June 7th and Matt had made reservations for us at our favorite restaurant, French Press at 8:00. At 7:15 he said he decided he was going to propose that night, so we went have a fun, nice dinner and then he asked if I wanted to go get a milkshake from Indulge ( a dessert shop ). When we got there, he wanted to go walk by the lighted archway where there were fountains. All I was concerned about at that point, was getting my milkshake before the shop closed!!
So we went walk out to the archway and our song (Hold you in my arms by ray lamontagne) started playing. I was clueless and got very excited because I thought it was a coincidence that our song was playing. He stopped me and then very sweetly proposed and danced with me for the rest of the song!
Q. Favorite things to do together.
A. We absolutely love to go to music festivals and concerts. We like to go to Saints games as much as we can. We also like to try new restaurants as well as cook. Matt loves to cook and I love to eat his cooking so it works out well!
Q. Have a passion (besides your love of course) tell us about it!
A. I enjoy doing floristry work, it’s something that my mom has always done and I learned from her!
Matt has really been looking into different organizations to kind of mentor young guys that have gotten into trouble. That is something he has been wanting to do for a while.

Bethany and Matt’s Wedding Part 2

Bethany and Matt Wedding Part 1 of 2

Bethany and Matt were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in Bethany’s parent’s backyard (and by backyard, we mean they should rent it out as a resort).  Bethany’s sister happens to be the event coordinator at City Club in Lafayette, and Bethany’s Mom is a super talented artist-  so this combination helped make up a great team to bring Bethany’s dream wedding into fruition.  However, it was Bethany’s vision that really put this wedding over the top making it one of our absolute favorites of year (in terms of decor and location).  Of course, we may be bias towards her colors (which included our brand colors, Gold glitter and  baby pink).
