I have literally been dying to share this Abbeville wedding that took place at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church and Magdalen Place reception venue. I met Erin and her sweet mom last year at the Bridal Expo in Lafayette and we hit it off immediately! Shortly after the expo we met for their engagement session and we had a blast!! Erin & Hunter are incredibly sweet and good natured which made everything so easy during their wedding process. Arriving at her parent’s home the day of the wedding, the first thing that hit me were the ROSES! Erin & Hunter decided to get married on her parent’s wedding anniversary!! I couldn’t believe how special that was :) We started off the day with a little wedding toast to celebrate two generations of love and marriage. There were so many special moments during this day, I couldn’t begin to describe them all! Erin absolutely glowed with joy and Hunter couldn’t keep the smile off his face! It’s so easy to see the love between them and their photographs shine with happiness! Even though the timeline was tight, Erin and Hunter made certain we had a little time for photographs after their wedding mass. These are easily my favorite photographs of the day! I’m so thankful for Erin, Hunter and their wonderful family! We had such an amazing time with them on their wedding day and I can’t wait to see how God blesses their marriage in the future :) Enjoy a ton of my favorites!!!

We had the privilege of photographing Erin’s bridals at the most stunning home in River Ranch, Lafayette! I thought we were in a castle at times, lol!! We decided to photograph some of her details shots there to save time on the wedding day :) I’m so happy we did! I can just imagine one of these as artwork in their home one day!
