It’s been a hot second since I’ve had a chance for wedding photography at Juban’s! Some people don’t know about this hidden gem in Baton Rouge. Not only is it an amazing Creole restaurant, but it’s also a fantastic space for holding your wedding and reception!
Summer and Brad could not have been more perfect on their wedding day this past Saturday. I love that they valued capturing the authenticity and real moments of their day over anything else! With as commercialized as the wedding industry has become in general, it’s music to my ears when I meet people who just get it. Moments matter more than anything else!
And then came the big surprise!
Mannnnn, did we get some magical moments on this wedding day. You could really tell just how much Summer and Brad were loved by their friends and family–everyone was just beaming all night long, watching them tie the knot and celebrate. So, the close relationships between everyone were on full display, and when Summer and Brad busted out their surprise news…! Let’s just say that everyone was completely over the moon to find out in quick succession that not only were these guys having a baby–but it was a girl!
Very few people knew that these two were expecting before the wedding, and no one but the couple knew what they were having! In a fun twist, they decided to use the groom’s cake cutting to announce to their already-shocked crowd of friends and family what their baby’s gender was.
How’s THAT for a gender reveal party? This one was probably one of the fanciest ever seen. 😉
I loved all of the joyful, tearful, hilarious moments that made up this day. And, as always, I felt so honored to be included in it. I never take for granted, the trust that’s placed in me to memorialize these precious memories for my clients.
Congratulations to these two! And, also…get some sleep while you can. 😉
Special thanks to the vendors who helped make this night magic!

Ahh, the post-kiss lipstick wipe. Classic!
These drink toppers were the funniest thing! A man in a speedo, from what I could tell! Ha!
Oh, hey – guess what! We’re having a baby!
It’s a GIRL!
