THE HideOut Kirkwood Pink Wedding, Colleen & Sean

Colleen and Sean are a bit of a power couple. They are small business owners and super major ballers at it. Colleen is a health guru and has a wild following that I can't even really begin to fathom. They encourage, support, compete and comfort each other. Giggling and playing with each other on wedding day was super fun to watch and the amount of detail at this wedding RULED. Also their dogs. I am a sucker for dogs at weddings. Especially since my beagle is five times the normal level of mentally ill. Get ready for PINK! GLITTER! CRAZY SOCKS! DOGS CHASING DRONES! PLANTING TREES! And basically, MORE AWESOMESAUCE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE! :) They married at the end of June at THE HideOut, Kirkwood, one of my favorite venues ever! It's an amazing private home rental near Lake Tahoe and I highly recommend it!

We started the day, of course by getting Colleen dressed outside. Just about all of my brides do this. It's a great way to be one with nature, get centered, and oh year, get some freaking awesome shots. Even if it is in full sun!

First Look with Dad!

For their first marital act, they planted a tree together! How cool is that?

Yes, that's a bullet!

Next post, the reception and their awesome sunset canoe ride!

Garden District New Orleans Wedding Reception, Terrell House Bed & Breakfast (Andrew & Lauren)

Andrew and Lauren finished off their amazing destination wedding with a beautiful live band during their reception, and a second line around the Garden District of New Orleans! The police closed down the streets for us and we marched, danced, hooted and hollered while the local residents came out to watch and cheer for the new couple! We ended the line in a local park where there was much dancing and merriment. It was a night and a moment I will never ever forget at a wedding and highly recommend! Thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special, special day!

As a special secret side gift... I recorded video on the sly during the reception and mixed a little music! I'm not a videographer and I really advocate hiring a professional, but I love doing fusion films from time to tome! Enjoy!

New Orleans Garden District Wedding at the Terrell House Bed and Breakfast (Andrew & Lauren)

When Lauren and Andrew went to plan their wedding, they initially planned to get married close to home, but when they really thought about it, they wanted to tie the knot really special to them. To them, and especially Lauren, that place was New Orleans. NOLA! Family and friends flew in from all over, braving storms, tornadoes, bad traffic flight delays and who knows what else to get there! The day started out a little drippy, so we got the tents set up, but then it was a perfect, clear wonderful day!
