My jaw has literally fell all the way to the floor looking back on Erica and Dustin’s GORGEOUS spring wedding at The Oaks Wedding & Event Center in Ponchatoula, Louisiana!! This day was seriously nothing short of a fairytale with the soft pastels, fresh blooms, and comfortable overcast weather. When you mix all of that with the sweetest couple, you get an absolute BREATH-TAKING wedding day!
It has been a long time coming for Erica and Dustin and I couldn’t be happier that the stars aligned just so for me to capture this day for them!! Sometimes I think to myself that I am not sure what I did to deserve to be apart of such a special time for couples like Erica and Dustin. All I know is that I will forever be thankful! I arrived at the venue and immediately felt such a warm and welcoming presence from Erica.
My absolute favorite part of the day was Dustin’s reaction to seeing his beautiful bride for the first time during their first look. Do yourselves a favor and scroll to see this because it is to die for!! Dustin turned around and I witnessed him become so overwhelmed with emotion he burst into tears! I was DYING!! Something every girl hopes for is exactly how Dustin reacted! It was truly a gift to be able to capture this moment!!
After an amazingly heart-felt first look, we then strolled about the grounds taking beautiful portraits, laughed with the bridal party, and witnessed a lovely courtyard ceremony. Erica and Dustin danced the night away and ended the night with sparkler send off! They hopped into classic Rolls Royce and off they went. I couldn’t be happier for these two as they get ready to do life together as husband and wife!! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Simoneaux!!
