The week leading up to Liz and Joe’s Wedding was getting to be stressful because of all the rain that was expected the days leading up to their wedding day and on their wedding day. However, Liz planned for the expected but still managed to kept it stress-free and knew we would make it work wherever happened.
The afternoon during groom and bridal prep turned out to be beautiful day with the sun shining for minutes at a time. We took we got and tried to make the most out of this time for photos outside. The bride and her bridal party got ready right next to Palmetto’s on the Bayou at this quaint cottage, which is a few feet away from the wedding venue. While the Joe and his groomsmen finished getting ready at The Venue, which was rented out for a few hours in anticipation of the rain. Thankfully God graced us with a cloudy afternoon and a few moments of the sun peaking through the clouds.
Unfortunately, the forecast predicted for rain that afternoon and they were actually right this time because it started to pour before the ceremony began. Luckily, Palmetto’s on the Bayou was ready for the anticipated rain and had the tents ready. The ceremony was completely covered and then turned into the reception space right after.
The ceremony and reception space was beautifully decorated with the gorgeous florals by Distinctive Florals and details by Decor on a Dime. It was the perfect setting for Liz and Joe’s intimate wedding. They were thrilled to share this moment with their three children, their family and closets friends. They even shared the dance floor with their children as one of their first dances. The DJ, Dale Blanchard, kept the dance floor going through the entire night and ended with a fun second line around the venue.
