I have been dying to blog about this Lafayette Wedding since the night I got home with all my cards full of images. The whole day was a blast and I feel so blessed that I was able to be a part of it. Nicole & Nick are two of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. I can’t describe how much I’ve enjoyed getting to know them throughout this last year. I’m so thankful that they’ve become more than just clients, but great friends as well!! Their wedding day was perfect from beginning to end! Nicole was relaxed and enjoyed getting ready with 11 of her closest girls! LOVE the bridesmaids shots we were able to take right before dark! St. John Cathedral in Lafayette provides such a gorgeous backdrop for picture and the Petroleum Club always hosts the perfect party (and food!!!). Their day was full of joy and excitement and I’m so excited to share just a few of my favorites <3
We were lucky enough that Nicole was able to get ready at the Cathedral’s Youth Center. What a beautiful space!!!
All the GIRLS!!! 10 Bridesmaids and a very special Jr. Bridesmaid is definitely a party!
Such a gorgeous ring!!
I love that the date was engraved into Nick’s ring! Such a special touch <3
This porch made getting ready pictures amazing <3 love these!!
Nicole you are so beautiful!!! :)
All the girls helping with last minute touch ups :)
Both the ladies and the guys were able to take their pictures next to the church, squeezing the last little bit of daylight we had left!
Her something old <3
The GUYS!!! Those socks are hilarious!
A quick prayer with Nick’s high school priest. Such a special moment!
Nicole & Nick exchanged gifts and waited to make sure I could photograph that moment
He sure was happy to see his Momma!!!
Tears from the sisters <3
This is quite the wedding party, lol! They were such a fun crowd!!!
One of my favorite church portraits ever! I’m so happy we took a few minutes to photograph them together as a married couple!
Such a beautiful church!
Nicole’s face says it all!!
Didn’t I say they were a fun crowd?!?
Nicole’s excitement and joy were contagious :) I smile every time I look at this picture!
The Petroleum Club set up so many gorgeous Christmas trees!
Cannot wait to photograph their best friend’s wedding in APRIL!! Coming soon!!
I love the way they displayed their engagement pictures! Such a cute and easy idea :)
Nicole & Nick’s exit was definitely memorable! Not only did they have sparklers, but they also had LOTS of confetti!!!
I think Nicole was as surprised as I was!! The groomsmen made sure they had a proper exit!!!
Thank you, Nick & Nicole for allowing me to photograph your special day. I know your marriage will be blessed beyond belief :) Congratulations!!!
I would like to give credit to the many vendors that helped make their wedding day amazing!!
