I was super excited when I heard of all the cajun elements being brought into this very sweet and personal affair. Sarah’s family was excited to show James’ family our food and traditions. It started off at the crawfish boil the night before and extended out to the cajun band, the Daiquiri Queens that had the whole dance floor filled all evening.
Sarah, her sisters, and her sweet dog Layla got ready in her grandmother’s hair salon that she had grown up in and it was the perfect way to start the day; followed by a Catholic Mass at Our Lady of Fatima, portraits at the Alumni House on UL’s campus with a beautiful reception at Cafe Vermilionville. One of my favorite moments was the private reveal of the reception space and first dance that was arranged.
This wedding is a little bittersweet because it was my last wedding at Cafe V before they closed. It was one of my favorite venues in our city and it will be greatly missed!
I also was able to work this wedding with my good friend Kerri of Threaux Events and she completely knocked it out of the park! From lining up a vegan cake from Whiskful Baking Co to pulling together the rentals from Texture Rental Collection and the flowers from Thistle Company, she made sure everyone had a great experience.
