Wedding | Cassie and Jeff | Windows on the River

I knew from their engagement session that Cassie and Jeff were up for anything and wouldn’t shy away from “strange” ideas that their photographer had.  The end result of this (plus lots of time for pictures) was some of my favorite wedding images I’ve taken!  It was a bit of a hectic start to our day due to delays and reschedulings from the salon but in the end it all worked out, Cassie looked amazing (props to my fav makeup artist in the world Jason Kelly!) and the day was perfection.  I also have to give props to their fantastic bridal party who had my back all day.  They were a dream to work with!  Beyond all of that amazing goodness going on, the theme for their wedding was Mardi Gras/New Orleans since they went to college in New Orleans.  If you’ve followed my blog, you may have noticed I’ve been there a few times so my heart was happy. My stomach was too when I got to not only enjoy some jambalaya but also some beginets!!!

This bridge is beyond awesome and was brought even more to life with gorgeous light at the time of day we were there.

The Ribs Burnoff was taking place at the same time as their wedding in the parking lot for their reception venue.  They were kind enough to let us in for a few pictures!

Have I mentioned how awesome Cassie and Jeff are yet?  Because they are.
