Lauralee and Matt // Remington Suite, Shreveport

Upon arriving in Shreveport, Louisiana, we were greeted with the most thoughtful welcome bag from Lauralee and Matthew...just one of the many special touches these two put into their wedding weekend.  We were honored to spend both their rehearsal dinner at the The Petroleum Club with them, as well as their wedding day at the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans Catholic Church and The Remington Suite Hotel & Spa.  Being music lovers, the couple incorporated records by their favorite artists into the table centerpieces at their rehearsal dinner.  SO CUTE!  You'll have to watch their Bride Film below to witness one of the sweetest first looks we've ever captured (biggest smiles!), and also make sure to read their romantic beach engagement story from Lauralee...any day that includes love, sunsets, sushi, wine (*and a gorgeous diamond engagement ring*) is a happy day to us.  We had a great time working with the super sweet and talented Bray Danielle Photography...make sure to check out her beautiful photos from the weekend on her blog here.  Congrats Lauralee and Matt!!

...Matt then led me over to another spot on the beach where there was a blanket laid out and a picnic basket and wine bag waiting for us. He told me we would be having dinner there on the beach with the sunset and that the photographer would be there to take pictures of every moment. The picnic basket was special because it was one we had both picked out together at an antique mall in Nashville. Matt opened it up to reveal sushi (my favorite food!) and appetizers and dessert. In Murfreesboro, we had taken a class to make and bottle our own wine. Well, he had a bottle of that for us to share too. It was so romantic - sitting on the beach, facing the sunset, eating my favorite food, drinking our wine, with the man of my dreams who had just asked me to be his forever. He truly thought of everything, and it was the most perfect proposal I could have imagined.
