Olivia and Phillip, St. Pius and Le Pavillon

It’s been a while! I have so much catching up to do on the blog, but my Louisiana brides have been filling my heart and my calendar with so much goodness! Since I’m so far behind, we’re going to throw it wayyy back to Olivia and Phillip’s hot July wedding day!

I had so much fun working with Olivia, Phillip and Olivia’s mom! Olivia’s engagement was a quick one. I think we planned her wedding in about 5 months and if you know me, you know I love a quick engagement. It allows for quick, solid decisions and no real second guessing. This group was so trusting and didn’t over think anything, they knew what they liked, didn’t like, wanted, didn’t want and completely trusted me and the process. Plus, they were just a fun group to work with.

Planning Olivia’s wedding for July meant we could use and thankfully, she was really into using COLOR! So many brides steer clear from too much color in their florals, afraid that it will take away from the classic, timeless look that they may be going for, but I completely disagree! I think using fun colors is a great way to add spice, personality and really make your wedding stand out. I’m so obsessed with the florals for this wedding, Root Floral Design did an amazing job, per usual and Kim always does a phenomenal job with the photos.

I loved this family, loved these colors, loved Olivia’s classic wedding dress… this wedding was full of SO MUCH GOODNESS. Like really goodness that matters: family, friends and love.
