Brittany and Brad’s beautiful wedding took place at the lovely Houmas House Plantation in Darrow, LA. This venue holds a special place in my heart because it’s where I said, “I do” over 4 years ago! This has always been and still is one of my top favorite wedding venues in the south. It’s southern charm is simply breathtaking… so I’m always pretty giddy when I book a wedding that is taking place there. Brittany and Brad’s big day was simple, sweet, and prefect. They were both so incredibly easy going… it was a beautiful, but hot (in the upper 90′s) summer day back in May… The heat and humidity did not stop them from wanting to get amazing photos… so they, and their UBER amazing bridal party put up with being outside and took photos for 2 straight hours before the ceremony. With being the troopers they all were, it allowed me to do what I love doing. I broke this wedding down in to 2 parts. Part One is the beginning of the day and everything else leading up to the ceremony. I hope you all enjoy!!
To top off this amazing day, Brittany and Brad decided to see each other before the ceremony…!!! Their reactions were priceless during their “First Look”… Every time I have the opportunity to shoot a First Look, I fall more and more in love with the idea. It’s a moment just for the Bride and Groom… a moment that they can share together… they can talk… kiss… touch each other.. it’s truly beautiful. Here are some words from Brittany about her First Look with Brad :
“Our favorite moment from our wedding day was definitely our “first look.” It was so great to have that moment together in the midst of all of the hustle and bustle of the wedding. Seeing each other before the ceremony really helped to get rid of some of those wedding day jitters too!”
