Southern Oaks Wedding | New Orleans
Mannnnn, I’ve been excited to show off this wedding for a while, now! This will go down in my books as one of my favorite wedding days EVER. Amanda was an infectiously joyful bride–full of love and excitement all day long. Adam was such an effortlessly cool groom, and the two of them together did our city of NOLA justice, for sure.
Their whole crew was just the right mix of fun and all kinds of emotional – which was right up my alley. Telling the story of a wedding day in a way that is real and authentic is so easy, when you have clients like this!
The getting-ready part of the day began at The Westin, and their incredible ceremony was held at the iconic Southern Oaks. If you’ve never been to this venue, it is TOP NOTCH New Orleans, man. Those sweeping, moss-laden oaks are just gorgeous. (And the food is OVER THE TOP delicious!)
Annnnnd, how about Amanda’s entrance…IN A HORSE AND CARRIAGE!?
So much love poured out of these two, and their friends and family all day long, for this wedding day. It was all kinda of magical, and perfect, and I’m so glad I got to spend this day with them!
Special thanks to the following vendors for making this day the dream that it was:
Cake by Marguerite’s Bakery in Slidell
Videography: B. Bryant Films
Venue: Southern Oaks
Okay, now: Onward, to relive this amazing day in photos!
I love a dramatic portrait, man!
Because Amanda was having a destination wedding in New Orleans, we made plans to photograph her bridal session the day-of. Her bridal images were ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I couldn’t pick just a handful of favorites. So, you’re welcome or I’m sorry for the overload. 😂
Horse. And. Carriage. 👏👏👏
Welp, this reaction was everything I was hoping for!
I love watching for parent reactions during the ceremony!
I love wedding second lines!
Fun photos with your parents, anyone?
These are the moments that make your wedding day YOURS! There are no “mistakes” on a wedding day – only memories. 😎
Funniest garter toss ever! (I know, I say that every time)
Sorority sisters and this special tradition is so amazing, every time at weddings!
Pralines as wedding favors are never a bad idea!
