If you're dreaming of a romantic, rustic farm wedding, than The White Magnolia is the venue for you!
"Easter weekend I was expecting another fabulous weekend with my parents and Clay in Breckenridge, CO, where my parents honeymooned and now own a house. And the weekend was SO much more than I expected. On Saturday, after finding out Clay just flew face first in the snow after a snowmobile ride with my dad, we decide to go get drinks before dinner. We decided on a new restaurant in town, and I order a glass of champagne. Everyone asked what I was celebrating, and I said LIFE. Little did I know.
Once we reach our walking path near the river, Clay then turns to look at me and says, “This is it.” I say, yes I know it is, you’re the one, etc. He proceeds to say, “No, really…” and pulls out the ring box from his jacket. I blink a couple of times to make sure what I’m seeing is real, and I am speechless when I see the amazing ring he picked. I ask him if he is serious. He is, as he gets down on his knee and asks me to marry him!! First things first, I ask him if he has talked to my father (the protective bald man over his only child), and he did. Phew, so I said YES! Looking back on it now, it’s funny because we only made it a few steps on the sidewalk and not quite to the river. He was just ready to get that ring out of his pocket. But, it was perfect."
Friends, the time has come to fill your Wednesday afternoon with some wedding PRETTY! Natalie and Johnny hosted a fabulous wedding weekend, giving their guests the classic New Orleans French Quarter experience mixed with the sweet southern charm of Houmas House Plantation. We first met up with the cute couple at their rehearsal dinner at the famous Court of Two Sisters to begin the celebration with some lighthearted and emotional speeches from their closest family and friends. We LOVE filming rehearsal dinners because they give us a chance to hear/capture all of the speeches that truly tell the story of our couples' love.
Great time working with the super talented Ashleigh Jayne Photography and Angela Marie Events. From decor to organization, the Angela Marie team made sure every beautiful detail was in its place. Make sure to check out all of the talented vendors, still frames, and of course, their Bride Film below to get a glimpse into Natalie and Johnny's love story.
