Victoria and Evan’s wedding at Ducros Plantation was an absolute dream! I’ve photographed a few things here and there at the plantation, but this was my first wedding there and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it! We did all of Victoria and Evan’s photos there, including their engagement and bridal portraits, so it was a wonderful experience getting to know Mrs. Angela at Ducros.
The plantation is the perfect setting for a Southern spring wedding – even if it wound up being one of the coldest March nights that I can remember!
Victoria and her girls all got ready on the top floor of the house – such a beautiful backdrop for these photos. The crystal chandeliers and stately furniture were the perfect setting for a wedding prep! I absolutely LOVE their invitations with the sketch of Ducros inside the envelope – what a perfect detail! And doesn’t Victoria just have the best smile – her whole face is just so joyful when she smiles!
This isn’t my first experience with Evan’s family – we photographed his brother Shelby’s wedding several years ago – scroll to the bottom of the post to see how history repeated itself for this wedding (and also why the groom’s cake was a box of wine) LOL Funny story, I knew that Evan and Shelby were brothers but when they asked if I specifically remembered Evan, I said no … and then I saw his groom’s cake and it all came back to me! Shelby and Jordan’s wedding was just as much fun as this one was! The Kelly family is just so sweet – Evan and Shelby seem very close and are obviously so loved by their parents. There is so much love between all of them.
The details and decor of this wedding were just amazing. Victoria did a lot of the decor herself – from the adorable vintage centerpieces to the amazing charcuterie table. No detail was missed – even the cake table decor was her idea – it was stunning! Aaron Sanchez of Charlie Jane Events also did an amazing job, as usual, with her planning and coordinating. I always love working with her – you just know a wedding day will go smoothly when she’s involved.
Everyone had a blast at the party thanks to Nola Sweet Creations who provided daiquiris and LOTS of shots! Even though it was outdoors and very cold, no one was feeling the chill as they danced and danced all night.
Congratulations Victoria and Evan – your wedding was a dream and we enjoyed every second of working with the two of you!
