{Louisiana Wedding} Rachel + Conan

Rachel was one of the most laid back brides I’ve ever seen. Even though she allowed herself this one day to be a bridezilla, she never let that happen. From her beautiful Jasmine Couture dress to the beautiful landscape at the American Rose Center, everything turned out perfectly. I can’t get over how stunning Rachel looked that day. I’m pretty sure Conan can’t either! We were so glad when they decided on a First Look. The moment was priceless for them. The entire day was nothing short of a fairytale wedding.

Thank you Rachel & Conan again for allowing us to be a part of your special day. We are so happy for you two and pray blessings and awesomeness on your wedding!
