We meet some crazy cool couples on the pages of SMP and today is no exception. This fabulously chill duo had us wishing we were on their guest list from the very first image. We’re totally embracing their hip vintage vibe and laid-back (but still super stylish) Louisiana nuptials. With colorful florals and a flirty Lena Medoyeff dress, this wedding is DIY done right. Photography dream team, Jamie and Heather of Dark Roux were there to capture all the magic, music, and melt-worthy moments. You won’t want to miss a beat, so make your way on over to the gallery to see every more.
From Dark Roux… The second we got to the hotel, Heather fell in love with Alicia’s dress as well as all of the hand made ties for Rex and the groomsmen that Alicia made. The ceremony took place outside of the Destrehan Plantation (which is right outside of New Orleans, Louisiana) with the reception happening just behind in the Mule Barn. Alicia’s smile, (As Rex’s older brother put it) had enough energy to light up the entire city! The best moment of the night is when all of their siblings sang a hilarious song that Rex’s brother wrote about the two of them falling in love in Machu Picchu. The ceremony, the second line that followed, the dancing, the band, the food, the second line (which is a New Orleans tradition of dancing with a Jazz band back to the reception after the ceremony), all of it was second to none. This was a really an amazing night!!
