Carly and Ted’s retelling of their engagement from their own points of view is so much fun to hear! Ted proposed in Dahlonga, Georgia at the Montaluce Vineyards and kept it a complete surprise from Carly! Just like their engagement day, their wedding was also a perfect day at a stunning location: the Capitol Park Museum in Baton Rouge.
With the help of many caramel lattes, we have been editing away in the studio, and we can't wait to share all of our recent films! This busy wedding season has been wild, but oh so fun because we have met so many wonderful couples and shared some of the most special moments.
We started the weekend with Lauren and Bart at their Rehearsal Dinner at Dickie Brennan's Tableau...we captured TONS of great speeches. The next day, their classic New Orleans wedding took place at the St. Louis Cathedral and the Omni Royal Orleans in the French Quarter. Lauren was an absolutely STUNNING bride! Everyone had a blast at the reception with Rockin' Dopsie leading quite the dance party...he ROCKS the room always! The talented folks at Ruby & Pearl Events made sure the entire day went smoothly and to view Lauren and Bart's beautiful photos by Studio Tran Photography: click here. Rebirth Brass Band ended the night in true New Orleans fashion with a second line through the French Quarter. Make sure to check out their Bride Film (including some of those great Rehearsal Dinner speeches), still frames, and engagement story from Lauren below.

"Bart is an orthopedic surgeon and every year for their graduation dinner they "roast" the graduating residents. Last summer was Bart's year to graduate so he had planned out that during his roast, he was going to ask me to marry him...the guy who roasted Bart did it in a really cool way and sort of tee'ed up the proposal for Bart. I was so shocked! The graduation dinner was in the ballroom at The Ritz in front of the entire program...as soon as he got down on one knee, & I said yes, I turned around & my parents had flown in from Dallas and several of my close friends were walking through the door as well! We all walked over the the Jeremy Davenport lounge where he had arranged for Jeremy to announce us as soon as we walked in & then Jeremy cleared the dance floor and sang "It Had to Be You." It was so sweet & well planned!"
