So now that its been a little over a week, I wanted to give a shout out to my awesome vendors. If anyone is planning on getting married anytime soon, I highly recommend these wonderful ladies and gents; we had an amazing experience with all of them! First of all, Mrs. Jill and her staff at Cedar Grove Tchoupitoulas Plantation were SO awesome to work with. I can’t rave enough about how perfect everything was and how easy it was to plan everything with her. The food was sooo good, our DJ Corey was great, and the entire staff did such a fantastic job the entire night. Next, our photo and video vendor, Welch Photography & Video. Again, I can’t say enough positive things. Robert, his wife, and his crew are so easy and fun to work with! They never made us feel awkward or posed, which was a big fear for us. We really enjoyed our time with them, and I think that’s really evident in our portraits. We’ll be returning to them for any future photography needs! Our makeup and hair was done by Flawless Bride LLC. Our artist, Ashley, and her team were awesome and super fun. They joked around with us (and put up with us) the morning of the wedding and they did an amazing job! Our florist, Plantation Décor in Destrehan. Mrs. Janie was friendly, patient, and a great advice giver. The flowers looked wonderful and she delivered them to our house fully labeled and with vases to help us keep them fresh until the ceremony. Last, but definitely not least, the photobooth was provided by Mister Big Shots Photo Booths. We booked with them pretty last minute, and Erin was so helpful and patient. Everyone really enjoyed the booth, and we love the cool scrapbook of photo strips. Again, just wanted to thank all of these wonderful people for making our day perfect. You guys all rock!!!

Hi Robert!!!!

First I would like to thank you for being a special part of our wedding. You say our wedding was a success,but you played a big part of it.. People are still talking about it, and still saying what such a good job you’ve done. By looking at the photos you did not miss a beat, and you made sure you caught every special moment!! I love when my husband and I look at each other and say” when that happen”. You are awesome Robert, you and your lovely wife. You made choosing the sixty photos for the album VERY hard, but we finally did it. Below are sixty-eight(68) total images, I will break them down into the category which they belong.Now i know we went eight(8) images over, but like i said it was hard. …Once again Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

Gee, what a very hard decision to make!!! At first I thought it was going to be easy but then it was hard to decide but here goes:

This was a very hard decision to make as I saw other pictures I would have liked to add but 50 came pretty quickly. We have looked at the Wedding Video. Mr. Welch, it was PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL!!!! We are so pleased with your work as well as you, your wife and daughter! Let me know if you have any questions or need anything further from us.

Wishing you and your family the best!!!

I am Very Happy with Everything concerning Our Wedding Day!!! Concerning Photography, Robert did an Amazing Job of capturing Every Aspect of our Big Day. We also decided to take Engagement Photos as well as Bridal Photos. It was All Very Relaxed. We knew that we wanted our Engagement photos taken at Audubon Park and Downtown, and I wanted my Bridal Pictures taken at Longue vue Gardens. Throughout the process, Robert helped us with scenes and locations that would really make for Beautiful pictures.

One of the Biggest Pieces of Advice that I could give a future Bride was given to me the day before my wedding by the church coordinator. That is: As you are walking down the aisle remember to look to either side and see the guests who have come to share in this Beautiful Day. Although that day flew by So Fast, I can still remember exactly who I saw as I as I walked down the aisle. Also, my guests noticed and were appreciative of that smile and eye contact.

I would Definitely suggest Welch Photography and Video to anyone wanting a Superb Experience and Beautiful Pictures and Video that you will always Cherish!!!

Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for us! you were AMAZINGLY patient with me through the questions, NOLA portraits, wedding, and doing the book!! Having those NOLA pictures done before the wedding really helped ease my mind the night of; i was able to relax more! And I have to give a shout out to my florists, Jon and James at Florist of Covington! i literally picked out the colors only and they really delivered on design! it’s as if they could read my personality and taste! I think the glue to the whole thing was really my bridesmaids..i would’ve fallen apart without my girls! Thanks again for everything!
