Rachel & Blake // Kent Plantation House Wedding

The warm colors of Rachel and Blake's wedding transport us back to this lovely past Fall...now we are ready to curl up on the couch with a warm bowl of soup and a romantic comedy.  But first, we must reflect on Rachel and Blake's vintage, rustic wedding at the beautiful Kent Plantation House in Alexandria, Louisiana.  The mixture of modern crystal chandeliers and rich red roses with the green surroundings made the perfect backdrop for these high school sweethearts' celebration.  A small, birdcage veil complemented Rachel's delicate, lace dress and the mix of dark, earth colored suits for Blake and his groomsmen were the icing on the cake.  We had a great time working with the awesome Heather at Mark Eric Photography and a wonderful team of vendors!

The Fall colors were in full force at Kent Plantation House.

We met in 7th grade at Alexandria Country Day School. We were both very shy and didn’t say much to each other at the time. We’ve been together now 8 and 1/2 years, since Junior year of high school.
