I will say this is an Iota wedding but we traveled all over on Ashley and Matt’s beautiful wedding day!! The girls started off getting ready at a hotel in Rayne, the ceremony took place at St. Leo Catholic Church in Roberts Cove and the night finished with their amazing reception at the Iota Ballroom!! It was a busy day but everything went perfectly. The weather cooperated and we were able to get BEAUTIFUL portraits! Ashley and Matt really wanted awesome wedding day pictures together and they were so patient with all of my ideas. They decided to have a first look together before the ceremony and I am so happy that they did! This enabled them to leave right after their ceremony and not miss a moment of their reception! All of the pictures were taken beforehand :) My favorite part of their wedding day was the JOY of their families!! It was so easy to see how ecstatic they were for Ashley and Matt to finally be married. Choosing my favorite images from this wedding was pretty much impossible so this is a huge blog post!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!! :)

Matt’s ring was one of the most unique Groom’s ring that I’ve ever seen! So cool to have “I Love You” in-scripted on the inside!

Ashley & Matt decided to order a Guest Book filled with their favorite engagement & bridal images. I LOVE this idea because it gives you a great keepsake full of pictures and sweet notes from your family & friends!

Bubble exits are AWESOME!! Super cool looking without the effort of sparklers :) I’m a fan!
