    Callie + Wes | New Orleans Wedding

    I figured that you loved the Callie and Wes’s wedding so much from the Love and Lavender feature, that you just had to see more! Ask and you shall receive!

    These two pretty people came to me as a blank slate, and I love it that way! So I sat them down and asked them, “Who are you?” Their response was that they are laid back, outdoorsy people who just want to have one hell of a party… so that’s just what we created! From the quirky, rustic and mostly outdoor venue of Race & Religious, to the succulents and magnolia leaves in the florals, we created a wedding made only for the two of them! Every single decor detail had something near and dear to their heart! The day started with bullet cufflinks as a present for the groom (who is an avid hunter), the ceremony was sealed with a time capsule and a kiss, and the reception ended with a muscadine wine favor made in their hometown of Mississippi! This dad of three (2 daughters (MOH and Flower Girl) and a son (Ring Bearer) who you will see all throughout these images) married the woman of his dream and this beautiful family was united!

    Julie Harris and her team travelled all the way down from Colorado to be a part of this super special day and I honestly couldn’t imagine a more perfect photographer for them! Her documentary style of photography captured every wink, every glance of pure love between the couple, and every corner of this amazing venue! These photos are pure perfecting and I hope you love them as much as we do!

    What I love most about this wedding is that it shows that you don’t have to be the feminine, super glam bride to have a gorgeous wedding! What matters most is that the wedding feels like the couple! And because this event matched them so perfectly, this wedding will forever be one of my favorites!
