Rheana is a girl after my own heart. She LOVES pink just as much as I do!! When I realized her wedding colors were my favorite fuschia pink, I got very excited! You’ll soon see what I mean below…
Rheana and Joseph were such an adorable couple. Joseph is a country boy all the way- loves to fish and hunt, and Rheana … well, she loves pink!! So she is a girls-girl all the way, which again, I love! They balance each other out so well. Joseph is very kind-hearted and his love for Rheana was very obvious. I had a wonderful time at their wedding and it was my honor to be a part of it.
Their wedding took place at St. John the Evangelist Church and their reception was held at The Country Club of Louisiana. Everything was done during daylight which is another favorite of mine. If you were to ask me what my two favorite words in photography are I’d reply: NATURAL LIGHT — I cannot express enough to my future clients how utterly and extremely important natural lighting is when it comes to planning your wedding. If you’re going to plan an evening wedding, make sure to check what time the sun sets the month you’re getting married, and plan around that. Having your ceremony an hour before it sets is perfect. (Unless you are having a full mass… then you’ll want to plan it about and hour and a half to two before it sets.) It’s best to have light during the ceremony and still have some left over right after for those perfectly backlit portraits with your new spouse! And if you aren’t able to schedule your wedding with that particular timeline, then I always recommend a “First Look” which you can read about here.
Now back to Rheana & Joseph:
Let the pink begin. First up: pink shoes!!!
Seriously… I LOVE this particular shade of pink… you should see my office. This color pink is everywhere…
…and they’re married!
I dig this shot of them…
Now for some fun details… and more pink of course!! Rheana was lucky enough to not only have one amazingly fabulous cake, but she got TWO! The strawberry shortcake one was a complete surprise for Rheana from her mother!
Disney is where they planned their honeymoon and Joseph planned this whole table at the reception around it. HOW COOL IS HE!?! All of the candy and Disney figurines were incredibly creative. They even had cute little pink bags made so the guests could take plenty of it home. I just loved this table. And had a hard time staying away from all that deliciousness!
The one thing at the reception that was NOT pink… Joseph’s cake!
The first dance as husband and wife:
Something else I love- chandeliers. Loooove them!
How cute is this shot of Joseph dancing with his grandmother? I had to post it.
Little did we know Rheana had a few dance moves under her sleeve–
Then she made sure to pull her sister into it with her–
Outfit change! And then a photo op with all the pockets in the bridesmaids dresses! CUTE!
Congratulations Mr & Mrs. Joseph!
