Glamorous Country Wedding in a Modern Barn


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.

  1. […] Ric is a lover of all things rodeo!  He and Cassidy felt that adding their horses to their engagement session would make it even more authentic to who they are.  I couldn’t agree more!  I love when couples personalize their engagement session.  It should be a reflection of who you truly are!  They chose the White Magnolia in Kentwood as the backdrop to their session because of its modern country feel.  You can see that we had quite an audience behind the fence in a few of the photos!  Not to mention that this was practically the coldest day of the year.  These two were TROOPERS!  You can’t even tell from looking at the pictures that they had goosebumps.  If you loved these engagements, check out their wedding at the same venue by clicking here!
