Cajun Wedding Photo Shoot

April 14, 2011  |  Inspiration

Hello hello! Wedding season is definitely in full swing! So far, we’ve created a yarn themed yellow, gray and orange wedding, blush and bashful vintage Southern wedding and backyard Secret Garden wedding. Many more fun weddings to come too!

I’m hoping to be posting more in the next few weeks. First up, a photo shoot I created with an AMAZING team last October.

Our theme was Cajun wedding with a spin. We wanted to capture the traditions and culture without going too kitchy. No crawfish or bayous here.

Cajun families are about traditions and great cooking. We focused on incorporating everyday kitchen items into our theme.

I’ll let the photos by Trent Bailey do the talking!

A few everyday items like cheese cloth, clothes pins and garlic.

A “chandelier” made from a three tiered basket that many grandmothers down South use for holding onions and garlic. And of course, we incorporated sweet tea! We had six different flavors.

Gorgeous ruffle cake and mini pecan pies. And black and white invitation set with kraft envelopes

Amazing old chapel at Acadian Village. My parents were married here 30 years ago!

We created a spice bar for the take-home favor. Guest could create their spice and take home a wooden spoon.

Black pots are must!

Dinner and Dancing…

The after party…

And quaint honeymoon suite!
