Lauren and Matt’s Houmas House wedding.

Emotions filled the day of this sweet wedding at Houmas House.  Lauren and Matt traveled from Houston to celebrate with family and friends at Louisiana’s most gorgeous wedding venue.  Houmas House wedding liason, Janine Thibodaux, helped coordinate the day. Check out Matt’s amazing bowtie from Brackish Bowties.

Lauren looked amazing in her Sophia Tolli wedding dress purchased at Ventura’s Bridal in Houston, TX.  I just love a classy dress with elegant sleeves! Pigeon House at Houmas House

Flowers were arranged by Becky Hofmann at The Floral Cottage.  Lauren chose roses and silver dollar eucalyptus to serve as the base of her floral displays. red roses and silver eucalyptus Houmas House Plantation Houmas House turtle bar wine, blush, and gold

I love when a bride and groom exchange notes before the wedding.  Not only does it create an atmosphere for great photos, it also gives them an heirloom to hold on to through the years, to remind them of the feelings they had just before they took their vows.  Brackish bowtie wedding Sophia Tolli wedding dress Sophia Tolli dress turtle bar houmas house bowtie by brackish groom suite houmas house ring bearer houmas house blush wine and gold dresses Sophia Tolli

Houmas House has many beautiful gardens.  One of the most recognizable is the amazing tea garden, which even has it’s own bridge and waterfall.  This was the perfect spot to set up Lauren and Matt’s first look.  tea garden houmas house first look ideas houmas house Sophia Tolli Sophia Tolli wedding Houmas House bride and groom houmas house romance houmas house ceremony houmas house wedding

Matt’s grandmother had recently passed- but she was watching from above.   I noticed Matt’s grandfather staring into the majestic oaks just before the ceremony.  It was later that I found out he spotted an owl perched in trees, watching the ceremony.  Owls were his wife’s favorite birds. It was a sign that Matt’s grandmother was indeed present and watching over the celebration.owl story handmade altar grandpaw groom waiting on bride bride and her dad houmas house houmas house wedding ceremony brackish bowtie houmas house ceremony under the oaks handmade wedding altar Sophia Tolli louisiana ceremony
