Clare + Ross are one of those couples who have this undeniable passion for one another. It is so sweet to witness. The setting for their big day couldn’t have been more perfect: 75 degrees and sunny, set under the stately oaks at the UL Alumni House. In my opinion, this is one of the most beautiful spaces in Lafayette for a reception. The ladies got ready here in the morning, which made for some incredible photos, all by Holly Everett.
I can’t go without mentioning the bond between Clare’s family, which is so special. I had to pull it together after seeing Mr. Lawrence’s reaction to seeing Clare for the first time the morning of the wedding…and she wasn’t even in her wedding dress yet! In addition to helping the bride + groom with all their styling needs leading up to the big day, I also worked closely with the bride’s sisters, Shea + Courtney, and their beautiful mother. Families like this have that good energy I just love being around.
There were so many things I loved about the process of this wedding…from the bridesmaid dress shopping to styling Clare + Ross for all the events leading up to the wedding day to the last minute change-up for someone’s dress for the rehearsal dinner 😉 Many great memories I will never forget about your wedding, Clare + Ross! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it!
A few words from Clare: “You were such a big help from choosing the bridesmaids dresses to making sure my veil was on perfectly before I walked down the aisle. Having you help select my outfits throughout the engagement eliminated a huge point of stress for me. It also was calming to have you there making sure the bridesmaid’s dresses were steamed and that everyone was looking their best. You even checked on the small army of groomsmen to make sure their hair was all in place. THANK YOU!!!!!”
