January 6, 2024 ! What a Wonderful day it was to get married. Dawson and Adrianne tied the knot at White Oak Venue in Ruston and it was an absolute dream. Adrianne had a big vision for their day, and it definitely came to fruition and stunned everyone. Every detail was thought through and gorgeous!
I met Adrianne and Dawson last May at their engagement session in Ruston. We had so much fun, and I instantly saw the genuine love and adoration these two had for each other. This was so true for the wedding day too. We started our day off at the Bridal Guest House capturing getting ready photos and details. Adrianne had this beautiful keep sake trunk for her bridal details and it was a beauty! What a perfect idea to keep all your wedding day things to remember them in! Adrianne’s bridesmaids were a blast to be around. I don’t know if I have ever been around a group of more fun and upbeat bridesmaids.
After getting ready the girls headed to the venue to put their dresses on while I captured the incredible details of the reception area and florals! This honestly has been by far the prettiest reception space that I have photographed to date. Everything Artsy Events created the most stunning space for The Brogan’s family and friends to celebrate in! After all of our first looks and bridal party portraits, it was show time.
The ceremony space was so beautiful too. With White florals and greenery covering the chapel, The Brogan’s became one. Once again, so many details made this ceremony special. They had a string quartet for ceremony music, Macey ,the maid of honor, sang while Adrianne and Dawson took communion, and then the entire bridal party prayed over the two. It was such a raw and emotional ceremony with love radiating throughout the entire time. We ended the ceremony with family portraits and a quick couple session!
At the reception, the crowd was wild! Everyone was having the time of their lives on the dance floor and having a blast. The newly weds danced the night away on their custom dance floor surrounded by all of their biggest supporters. Then they ended the night in a stylish sparkler exit leading to the getaway car!
Overall this night was epic, and I am beyond thankful that Adrianne chose me to capture her and Dawson’s dream come true. Below is a list of the AMAZING vendors that made such a smooth sailing and gorgeous day for the bride and groom.
