Bayou Wedding: Sometimes, dreams do come true - a fairytale wedding

Romantic and royal wedding on the bayous of Louisiana!

Many ladies dream of their weddings. Many dream of the princess fairytale and wonder if it's possible. Really, what girl doesn't want to be a princess (there are some, but many want it all)? They want to wear big poofy dresses and play with flowers and eat divine cake. So many ladies have this dream, but living in South Louisiana they wonder if it's possible. 

So when Jessica with New Orleans Weddings Magazine approached me with the idea of a bayou wedding, I could not turn it down! A great collaboration between some awesome vendors and models and it went oh so perfectly at Palmettos on the Bayou. This shoot was to die for fun and gorgeous! 

Palmettos on the Bayou offered so many options for the perfect Bayou wedding! (You can see our inspirations on Pinterest - think Princess and the Frog!) I knew what I enhance the setting, not cover it dress it up to make it fit for our royal event. 

This shoot included bridals, a ceremony, couple's time, reception ideas, and so much romantic lighting we simply fell in LOVE!
