After doing Leighann’s beautiful bridal portraits, I was really looking forward to her wedding with Justin. It didn’t disappoint on any level, equally beautiful to her portrait session and loads of fun. She got ready at the Marvilla Guest House which is near the church, Our Lady of the Lake in Mandeville. This proved to be a lovely place to take photos. Then on to the church, which is one of the more stellar Catholic Churches, which compares to some of the nicer New Orleans churches in grandeur. After a few photos at the church, we headed on to Benedict’s Plantation, which offers a fabulous reception room along with excellent food.

There was a nice touch with the cakes as they had a second one which was a replica of Leighann’s grandmother’s wedding cake. Her grandmother was able to attend and it was quite lovely to see her there to celebrate with her grandaughter. It’s a reminder how weddings are really about family and honoring those who made the union possible for the bride and groom to continue their own part of the family. Leighann and Justin made a lovely couple, and I found many of the photos I took just seemed to look best in black & white. They had an elegant feel to them, and the B&W versions just seemed to bring that out more.
