Olivia and Patrick’s Louisiana wedding at Nottoway Plantation

August 26, 2016


Olivia and Patricks Louisiana wedding at Nottoway Plantation was a celebration of love and family.  They traveled to South Louisiana from the Shreveport area for a day to remember.    A wise person who I deeply respect told me recently  that rain on wedding days is a good thing , because wet knots are harder to untie.  If that’s the case, then these two lovebirds will have a long healthy marriage! How true that is , especially thinking back on our wedding day when it poured as well-  and that was 25 years ago!   Check out some of the amazing images we were able to produce because of the rain below.    I’m reading a great book titled “The Obstacle is the Way” right now, and that title couldn’t be more appropriate.  There are times when life’s challenges can be used to create something beautiful in the end.  On this day, we used the rain as a dramatic backdrop for some really unique and beautiful images.    So guess that makes us part of the club. Kudos and hats off to Olivia and Patrick for smiling through the rain and making the most of your amazing day.

Even in the rain Nottoway Plantaion is a thing of beauty .  A southern gem full of stories from the past the longs to tell new stories .   Olivia knew she wanted her wedding to have a classic feel .  One that when she looked back it in 20 years would not feel dated . The gang over at Nottoway pulled her scheme together flawlessly with beautiful roses and peonies .  Her bridesmaids dresses from  BHLDN , Jenny Yoo , Amsale and Paper Crowns helped capture the color palette of ivory , blush , gold and mauve to perfection .  For her dress Olivia choose a stunner from Kenneth Winston and was flawless looking . When originally chatting with Olivia about her day and planning it out I must admit I got excited .  She and Patrick decided that they were going to not only break tradition and see each other prior to the ceremony but actually share space getting ready and help each other with final touches.  It was such a special time and we were thrilled to be a part of it and break tradition .

Though the ceremony did not happen outside , the white room made for a beautiful intimate setting for loved ones. After the ceremony the couple danced the night away with family and friends to the sounds of The Wonderfuls. When it came to the cake Olivia says she knew exactly what she wanted , the hard part was finding someone to create it , luckily for her , her vision came to life thanks to Chasing Wang .
