Laura and Ethan, James Grace House

Knocking out blog posts left and right! For this sweet couple’s wedding, we headed on over to Plaquemine, Louisiana to visit the James Grace House and let me tell you, it didn’t disappoint!

The James Grace House is actually the residence of Dr. Grace, one of the friendliest little old men you’ll meet. He took me on a tour of his home, told me about his family and his career, I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed working at this venue because of the kindness of it’s owner. And, it’s no surprise that Laura and Ethan, two of the nicest people that you’ll meet would also choose this sweet hidden gem as the site for their ceremony and reception.

These two love birds were married under the great oak tree located in the back of the property. The tree was dressed up a bit with beautiful flowers, draping and hanging candles from Hummingbird Floral Studio. After the ceremony, the guests then made their way to the old barn where the reception would be held.

The entire day was so sweet and special for Laura, Ethan and their friends and family. I loved people watching during this event. The pure joy on everyone’s faces was so special to see. I feel truly thankful to have been a part of and witness to such a special day in Laura and Ethan’s life.

Kathryn and Kyle, Mr. and Mrs. Schuler

I'm so excited to share a little about Kathryn and Kyle's big day! It's taken me several months to catch up, but I'm excited to finally be posting about them!

I met Kathryn and her mom last fall and immediately liked them. They are two of the sweetest, most classy ladies that you'll meet and it was SUCH a pleasure getting to know them and their family. 

Kathryn and Kyle were married in Grand Coteau, Louisiana at the chapel at Academy of the Sacred Heart. This church is one of my absolute favorites and I definitely think it was the perfect location for their ceremony as Kathryn was a former student there! 

The reception was held at Le Pavillon in Lafayette and was absolutely gorgeous! Flowers by Rodney did a phenomenal job and really set the space off in such a beautiful way. 

This reception was so much fun! Everyone seemed to have such an amazing time, it was incredibly fun to people watch. 

Kathryn and Kyle, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of such a special day. From the bottom of my heart, I wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness and joy!
