I'm always so excited to work a wedding in Baton Rouge. I love New Orleans, but there's something to be said for working in my own back yard, too. I shot this one with the fabulous Rachel Erin Photography, who is one of the sweetest people on the planet, and that makes for such a fun wedding day.
These two got married at the United Methodist Church in downtown Baton Rouge, and had their reception at the gorgeous Capitol Park Museum. The architecture! The live painting (yes, that's what I said)! The stunning backdrop of the capitol in all of the dancing photos! I was swooning, y'all.
It absolutely POURED rain on this wedding day, but did this group let it slow them down? That'd be a big fat NOPE. The guys ordered Jimmy John's (sorry, soggy delivery guy) and waited it out, while the girls did the same (albeit with slightly less risky food choices, because, you know...sauces are dangerous around dresses). The ceremony was beautiful, the transition to the reception was only slightly wet and squishy, and--good news!--the band did not get electrocuted from all of that fancy equipment they had set up just inches from the sheeting rain. Although, I'm gonna be honest - I held my breath and avoided puddles a time or two.
Gotta have priorities on a wedding day, right?
Groomsmen are some of my favorite people, really.
Gonna be late, but...JUST ONE MORE. #BeerMe
Poor, soggy delivery guy...
My first experience with LIVE PAINTING at a wedding reception. The canvas was a gift to the couple at the end of the night. How cool is that?
