Elizabeth & Kurt – Married!

Arte by CheyAnne & Vanessa

Elizabeth and Kurt were married in a beautiful New Orleans Courtyard ceremony in the French Quarter at Hotel Mazarin.  It was truly a blending of families, and a smaller more intimate wedding with just their nearest and dearest present.  It was a destination wedding for everyone involved, but as usual, everyone seemed to be enjoying all the New Orleans cuisine and culture.  The food at La Louisiane was bragged about throughout the evening, and rightfully so.  It was my first time photographing a wedding reception at La Louisiane, but Vanessa and I were able to eat as well, and they took great care of us!  It was delicious!  The day seemed to go by very quickly, but was not without a few stolen moments.  I love the photo of the two of them in the hallway before going in for the reception.  We enjoyed spending the day with you both, thanks for allowing us to capture your day!  Enjoy!

Stephanie’s Plantation Bridals

Arte by Doug & CheyAnne

What could be more southern than starting one’s wedding journey with a plantation proposal, which is exactly what Shane planned for his beautiful bride Stephanie. We were so happy to be included in that journey and just love the romantic, southern feel of her Nottoway Plantation bridals as well! If a guy is looking for proposal ideas, reading Shane and Stephanie’s proposal story below would be a good place to start!

  • Q. HOW: How did the proposal go?
    A. Knowing my love for antiques and plantations, Shane planned the most romantic and perfect proposal! He had given me a ‘groupon’ in May for a night stay at Nottoway Plantation. The voucher expired in August, somehow we managed to plan, around our busy schedules, a weekend to go. We arrived at the plantation on Friday afternoon and checked in to the “Corneilus Suite”, which was a room in the mansion. It was amazing, magical really! We had a wonderful dinner that night, at the Mansion restaurant.

    Bright and early the next morning, we played tennis on the grounds. Afterwards, we headed back to the room because Shane said we had plans for 9:00. At 9, on the dot, someone knocked on the door to deliver a brunch picnic basket. We were going to have a picnic under the big oak trees!! With mimosas! It was beautiful, and not yet hot! After insisting on getting someone to take a our picture, Shane waved over the groundskeeper to help. After taking a picture on our picnic blanket, Shane asked for one more picture…

    He then got down on one knee, and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. And with tears pouring and totally shocked with excitement, I said “YES!”. It was the best day of both of our lives so far. And we couldn’t have done it without the groundskeeper!

Stephanie & Shane Married!

Arte by Doug & Titus

I was so happy to be a part of Shane and Stephanie’s wedding! I’ve know Shane for quite some time while I was the university photographer at Nicholls in Thibodaux and photographed him as he was crowned Homecoming King. But throw all the stereotypes out the window that just popped into your head:)Shane is a great guy with an undying love for his bride, and even the rain on their wedding day couldn’t do anything to drown any of that for both of  them! I was about to start typing our usual story of the wedding day but then I revisited their replies to some questions we sent them before the wedding, and I think they say more about this great couple than I could ever try. So let’s here from the bride and groom!

WHAT: What are a few things about each other that you just absolutely love! What are you most looking forward to on your wedding day?

Stephanie- I love Shane’s giggle and smile, that is forever on his face. I love Shane’s love for me, and his eagerness to marry me. That makes things so much better. He is the kindest guy and cares so much about everything. He is super smart and I love that about him. His humbleness is one of his best qualities. I am most looking forward to becoming his wife and celebrating us, in the church. I have no doubt that God planned for Shane and I to become one. 
Shane- I love Stephanie’s green eyes. They are always the first thing that catch my eye. She has a warm and beautiful smile that can light up a room. She has a kind soul. Her eternal optimism keeps me going, no matter what life brings our way. She is my best friend and I love the times when we can spend together whether we are learning something new, traveling, or just staying in.    On our wedding day, I look forward to watching my beautiful bride walk down the aisle of the church, knowing that I get to spend the rest of my life with such an amazing woman.
