Real Weddings: Shelley and Devin

Today we are featuring a wedding from the bayou state of Louisiana! With a theme of casual elegance, the wedding was kept within the set 12k budget, which as all brides know, is no easy feat, regardless of how big or small your budget is! Shelley and Devin carefully negotiated every expense and were flexible and creative to achieve their goal.

The bride and groom decided to see each other before the wedding for a "First Sighting" photo session, which turned out to be Shelley's favorite moment of the day. "We got some awesome pics and I loved having that time with him. It was very special and seemed to make the rest of the day go by smoothly."

The wedding party arrived on a blue trolley to the ceremony site, which took place in the courtyard where Shelley and Devin first met, Town Square at Perkins Rowe.

The bridesmaids wore Alfred Sung's Style D440 in Black with pearl necklaces and light pink and yellow bouquets. Gotta love those peep toe heels too!

Guests then enjoyed an indoor/outdoor cocktail reception at a local restaurant with a live jazz band. The vintage Hollywood elements combined with southern charm created a warm and dreamy atmosphere.

Congrats Shelley and Devin! We hope your marriage has many more special moments and that your lives together will sail as smoothly as jazz.
