Laura and Matt’s wedding at Houmas House

Laura and Matt’s wedding at Houmas House.

Before their big day, we asked Laura to share her vision for her wedding with us.  Here’s what she had to say:

From day one, Matt & I knew we wanted something very romantic & whimsical, and a ceremony that definitely took place in the outdoors. When we found our venue, The Houmas House Plantation, it was the easiest decision we have had to make thus far. With the lush gardens and the beautiful oak lined front lawn, we knew it was exactly what we wanted for our special day. After choosing the venue, everything else just fell into place.

We wanted to keep the ceremony simple, but added a touch of romantic lighting by adding 8 tall lanterns with column candles inside.
When deciding on decor for the reception, Pinterest came to the rescue. I’ve been planning my dream wedding for the past 7 years we have been together so the floral arrangements and decor weren’t a difficult task for me. We chose to do whimsical arrangements on both the entrance tables & the buffet tables with baby’s breath, curly willow, and blush & ivory roses. For the guest tables we did a mixture of lanterns, candles & rose pedals, as well as floral arrangements similar to my bouquet.

For the reception, the band was it for us! Without a doubt we wanted a band that was going to bring both our families together for a night they would never forget, and I think we will definitely accomplish that & much more with Groovy 7. We can’t wait to dance the night away & share our love with all of our friends and family.”
