The purpose of doing inspiration shoots is to show you how you can make your venue look and give you some fresh ideas. These were taken at the White Magnolia to show you what’s possible in the farmhouse and outside at the pavilion.  The palette for inspiration was blush, white, and violet.  The florals were done by one of my favorite florists in Louisiana Root Floral Design based out of Lafayette.  Aren’t they absolutely fantastic?  This was all planned by Heather Benge Events who always does such an amazing job.  Scroll to enjoy!

Kentwood Farmhouse Wedding Inspiration


I love it when couples share a hobby together.  In this case, Kaitlin and Daniel shared a love of wakeboarding.  How cool is that?  It was such an honor to shoot their wedding.  The wedding party was SO much fun and just shooting getting ready had me laughing.  This is just a mini-gallery to show you a few images from the White Magnolia but if you’d love to see a full gallery.  Just let me know!

Charming Farmhouse Wedding with Incredible Florals


Where do I even start with these two?  Cassidy and Ric planned a beautiful country wedding at the White Magnolia with touches of blush, ivory, and delicate succulents.  I had so much fun shooting their details.  Everything was so cohesive and I could tell Cassidy put a lot of time into choosing each and every piece for her wedding day.  The girls were up in the bridal suite having a great time while the guys were hanging out by the cottages.  If you haven’t seen the cottages at this venue check out these cute quaint little buildings here.

It was a Summer day and the thick Louisiana heat laid on top of us like a blanket.  Everyone was so happy and excited about the day that it didn’t even make a difference.  Looking back I don’t think everyone really noticed!  We got Cassidy in her dress and headed down to set up for the first look.  Once Ric was in place, Cassidy headed down from the barn, walking slowly as she began to take in everything that was happening.  When she was a few steps away from Ric she told him to turn around and when he did his jaw just about hit the floor.  We all smiled and giggled.  Their love was infectious.

The rest of the day couldn’t have gone more beautifully.  Everything was complete perfection from the ceremony to the sparkler exit at the end of the night.   Scroll to see how it all turned out!  Also, check out more White Magnolia Weddings by clicking the link.
