GOD IS LOVE & LOVE WAS DEFINITELY IN THE ATMOSPHERE ON DANIEL & ASHLEYS

BIG DAY.

AS ALWAYS IT WAS SUCH AN HONOR TO BE ABLE TO CAPTURE & CREATE SOMETHING THAT WILL 

LAST A LIFETIME.

THE COUPLE CHOSE ONE OF MY FAVORITE VENUES FOR THEIR BIG DAY.

BELLEVUE WEDDING CHAPEL IN BENTON LOUISIANA.

 

IT WOULD'NT TAKE AN OPTOMETRIST TO SEE THAT THESE TWO WERE SIMPLY MADE FOR ONE ANOTHER.

WE STARTED THE DAY OFF WITH PRE WEDDING PREP SHOTS. MAKEUP WAS DONE BY THE AMAZING

KIRSTEN JORDAN SO OF COURSE THE LADIES WERE LOOKING FLAWLESS.

GOOD MUSIC, GOOD FOOD, & GOOD LAUGHS MADE THIS

BRIDAL PREP A BREEZE.

 

DANIEL & THE GUYS SHARED PLENTY OF GREAT MOMENT DURING THE PREP TIME AS WELL. ONE OF OUR

FAVORITE MOMENTS WAS DANIEL GETTING A CHANCE TO READ A HAND WRITTEN LETTER

FROM HIS SOON TO BE WIFE.

OBVIOUSLY DANIEL IS A MICHAEL JORDAN FAN OR AT LEAST JUST A FAN OF THE SHOES.

ALL OF HIS MEN RECEIVED CUSTOM JORDAN 1 SHOE JACKET PINS AS WELL AS OTHER GOODIES.

BEST OF ALL, DANIEL CALLED THE GUYS IN FOR ONE LAST PRAYER BEFORE SHOWTIME.

 

THE CEREMONY FOR ME WAS PROBABLY THE MOST EMOTIONAL ONE I HAVE SHOT IN MY 

WEDDING CAREER. YOU COULD LITERALLY FEEL THE EMOTION IN DANIELS EYES 

WHEN HE SAW HIS BRIDE FOR THE FIRST TIME. ASHLEY ESCORTED BY HER FATHER LOOKED 

LIKE A DOLL. AT THIS POINT IT WAS LITERALLY A SCENE FROM A MOVIE.

THE TWO SHARED COMMUNION & EXCHANGED VOWS. THEN WE WERE ALL TAKEN TO CHURCH 

WITH A WONDERFUL WORD, PRAISE & WORSHIP, & PRAYER LEAD BY PASTOR SOLOMON JORDAN.

 

THE RECEPTION WAS OF COUrSE FUN BUT ALSO VERY INTIMATE. THE COUPLE SHARED

A BEAUTIFUL FIRST DANCE THAT HAD EVERYONE IN AWE. AS MENTIONED IN OUR LAST BLOG

DJ STAN HAD THE PARTY JUMPING ONCE AGAIN. THE FOOD WAS GREAT CATERED BY THE VENUE. THE

EXIT FOR THE COUPLE WAS AMAZING AS THEY SHARED A KISS UNDER SPARKLES.

Mr. & Mrs. Wilsons Wedding at The Shreveport Convention Center

 

first off we were honored to be able to capture this beautiful wedding.

love was definitely in the air. 

everything about Brandon and jade screams love. Brandon told me he was nervous

"the good kind of nervous lol"

but ready to make a commitment of a lifetime. Brandon is such a humble guy.

so humble in fact that I didn't 

even realize that he is a nlf SAFETY for the Cincinnati bengals until after the wedding.

you could

see the excitement & anticipation in brandons eyes. before the ceremony began

I was able to get some 1 on 1 time with Brandon to capture him taking it all in before showtime.

 

jade had the most outgoing group of bridesmaids. full of personality, fun, & excitement.

I was able to capture them basically have their own reception before

the actual reception started lol. one thing I must add "jade had the most beautiful & detailed

wedding dress I have ever seen" yup I said it. "inserts shrug emoji". jade didn't seem nervous

at all. if she was then she just puts on a good poker face. she seemed very

calm & relaxed the entire day which is how is should be.

 

the ceremony went really well, the photographer Laura caraway & I worked very well

together to get in & out of each others way to grab the shots we needed. I always

love working with photographers who are easy to work with. it was a full

house during the ceremony. all eyes on love.

 

now to the fun stuff, the reception. this receptions was so elegant. from the cake

to the ceiling, to the decor. every detail was well thought & planned out.

I guess that is what happens when you book 5 star wedding coordinator

April banks Grimes.   this ceremony showed how a family is 

supposed to have fun. Brandon & his mother, jade & her father had an entire

dance routine planned out. it was nothing short of amazing. it was 

like dancing with the stars. the food was amazing, DJ Stan had the party rocking

from beginning to end & of course we had to end the night with a good

ole soul train line. check it all out below.
