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!
Video coverage was provided by our friends at Montoto Productions.
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.
Salon Chateau styled the girl’s hair and makeup.
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.
Did we mention that there are several peacocks parading around the grounds of Houmas House?
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.
Lauren and Matt chose Wine, Blush, Gold as their wedding colors. I absolutely love this beautiful and classy color combination.
The wine colored bridesmaid’s dresses were designed by Bil Levkoff.
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.
Lauren and Matt’s lovely cake was created with love by Stephanie Bueche Hansen at Les Amis Bake Shoppe.
Entertainment was provided by NOLA Dukes, who kept the dancefloor packed most of the night.
Houmas House has a few different ballrooms to choose from. Lauren and Matt celebrated their wedding in the famed Neptune Ballroom of Houmas House.
