Emily and Charles were married on February 19 at St. Louis Cathedral and held their reception at Mardi Gras World in Algiers. The start to the reception was wild and a sight to see as a high school marching band led Emily and Charles in a second line to the delight of the crowd.  It was probably one of my favorite moments during the wedding and the second line led straight into their first dance.

It was an incredible night and the kickoff of our 2011 wedding year.  Please enjoy their closing montage above and a few photos from their prep session and the reception below.

I jumped at the idea when Jeanne-Marie mentioned that she wanted part of her engagement session at UNO.  I hadn’t been on campus since I graduated and it was fun to walk around and take in the old building and some of the new ones.

Jeanne-Marie and Brett met there and she wanted to bring a little bit of UNO into her engagement photos.  It was such a fun session as we walked around the quad and found an empty classroom to take silly photos in.  After finishing up at UNO, we went to Audubon Park to finish up and they ended the shoot riding skate boards and answering a few questions for their mini love story video.  Jeanne-Marie and Brett are scheduled to get married on November 12 and please enjoy some of the engagement photos below and you can view more from this session at our facebook fan page.

Close to 100 people attended Jeanne and Brent’s Rehearsal Dinner at Smokehouse BBQ in Destin, Florida with Jenn, Jen, and I there to film and photo the events.  We started off at Rosemary Beach as everyone was enjoying the beautiful scenery and playing in the sand.  It was fun and then we drove to Destin for the dinner at Smokehouse BBQ and the food was absolutely delicious that was topped off with a Krispy Krewe cake that was built with 18 dozen chocolate and glaze donuts.

We provided entertainment for the night with a slideshow from their childhood and then they viewed their Love Story Video that brought a tear to both Jeanne and Brent.  We then heard multiple speeches from Brent’s dad, his best man Charles, and a great heartfelt speech from Jeanne’s sister and maid of honor Rhonda.  It was a beautiful start to their wedding weekend and please enjoy Rhonda’s speech and several photos from their rehearsal day.
