Sometimes it isn't the happy couple that contacts me first. So when a friend (and bridesmaid) contacted me about photographing their Cypress Columns Louisiana wedding venue wedding, it wasn't a surprise. The way she described Wendy and Alex's relationship and their love was so sweet that I knew I wanted to captured it all for them.
As it is with Louisiana weather, we weren't too sure what was going to happen on their wedding day. It had been pouring in the days leading up to the wedding. It was pouring in some parts of the start the day of the wedding. Fortunately, it stayed dry at their wedding venue during the day and only ended up sprinkling towards the end of the night.
For their wedding Wendy described the style as spring with a rustic/minimalistic vibe. She said they chose Cypress Columns wedding venue for their beautiful atmosphere and the outdoor setting they provided for their ceremony. Even though the ceremony was moved inside due to the threat of rain and the humidity, we got to take some beautiful photos outside before the ceremony.
During the planning of their wedding, Wendy said that one of her favorite part in the process was picking out dresses with her bridesmaids. She also enjoyed going to try on dresses with friends and family as well as picking out decor with her friends.
The most valuable piece of advice that Wendy has for future couples is to never give up on what you have worked for and never stop caring about the other persons wants and needs in your relationship. Just listen to one another and never go a day without working at your relationship.
I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from that day below. Congrats to the happy couple!
