Claire & Jake: A Rip Van Winkle Wedding
Claire & Jake’s Rip Van Winkle wedding was one for the books. After having a sentimental and traditional catholic wedding at their hometown church in St. Martinville, everyone headed out to Rip Van Winkle Gardens on Jefferson Island. They took advantage of the amazing view in a new way by moving their dance floor under the oaks and had their first dances at sunset as their guests took in the amazing view. I had never seen this set up before and it made the night feel super special. So much jitterbugging took place as Louisiana Red played on the nearby porch. An all-star team of vendors was put together to make sure the whole day turned out perfectly. From Southern Fete pulling all the details together to Root Floral Design doing the flowers, and Caked by Em delivering her always yummy cake; everything turned out beyond picturesque. My personal favorite is a tie between Claire’s Betsy Johnson shoes and the BHLDN bridesmaid dresses.
