For as un-southern as I am, I am fully obsessed with the elegance and traditions of the region right down to the way my Southern friends add y’all to just about anything. And this Louisiana affair is the poster child for Southern elegance. Photographed in that gorgeous Erich McVey way with styling and vintage vignettes by Mrs. Vintage and grand, sweeping florals by Karin’s Kreations LLC, this full gallery is a must.

From The Bride…My husband and I became engaged a little over a year prior to our wedding, and I couldn’t have been more excited about the upcoming journey! Like most ladies, I had a vision for our wedding day. I immediately booked our amazing photographer, venue, and stylist! I had dreamed of a very classy and elegant look with purples, blues, and pinks mixed with a hint of gold. From mood boards to Pinterest boards, we began our planning! I worked very closely with my photographer and stylist to create the perfect wedding! Our wedding was very intimate, and the day could not have been any more magical! I will dearly cheerish March 8th of 2014 for the rest of my life.
