Eastwood + Magnolia EVENTS Wedding

Formally Known as Chateau De Calcasieu, Magnolia Events always makes for a fun wedding reception. Haleigh & Andrew’s wedding was at Eastwood Pentecostal Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana. This couple was one of my favorite couples to ever work with. They even had some super cool custom-made Jones Soda bottles made! How freaking awesome is that?

Great Weddings Have Great Vendors

I had some help from my good friend Aaron Cox help me capture this wedding as a second photographer. If your in the Baton Rouge area check him out! Haleigh’s wedding dress is from Vows by Victoria Check them out if your’e looking for some great bridesmaid or wedding dresses in Lake Charles! Fun fact: Haleigh actually worked for Vows by Victoria during the time she was engaged!

We Met At Starbucks (sort of)

From their wedding initial consult at the Starbucks on Prien Lake, I knew that they were going to be great to work with and I wasn’t wrong! We even got to take Haleigh’s bridal portraits in an old plantation home! Even though it rained, those also quickly became some of my favorite bridal portraits I’ve gotten to take. Anyway, back to their wedding, the music at their ceremony was phenomenal. You rarely attend a wedding with music this good. With people like Vonnie Lopez singing during the service, how can someone be surprised? So good!  Everything from your beautiful wedding & classy reception venues to the cakes, and especially the exit was timeless and beautiful. I left Magnolia Mulvaney’s picking off so much confetti from my clothes and case the rest of the night!

Full disclaimer, this wedding is around three or so years old. I went through and decided to re-edit a few of my favorite photos. It’s always fun for me to go back and re-work some photography in a way that meets my current style. Thanks again to these two for booking me to be their photographer during their big day!
