Jessica + Jordan

Mr. & Mrs. LeBlanc

The Canefield

Married: November 20, 2021

Oh, what a special wedding to be asked to photograph.  I’ve been knowing Jordan since he was a little boy.  My godmother & Jordan’s mother are best friends.  When Jordan recently proposed to Jessica, I was secretly hoping they would contact me for their wedding.  

It was my first time photographing a night wedding at The Canefield and I have to say, it was absolutely beautiful.  Jordan & Jessica couldn’t have asked for a better weather.  It was just perfect.  Judge Weimer officiated the ceremony and these two love birds sealed their promise to each other with a kiss.  Quinn Landry with Impulse Entertainment got the party started.  Everyone had a great time dancing, visiting and enjoying great food.  They ended the night with a private dance & a sparkler exit as they prepared for a few days in Orange Beach. 

Jordan & Jessica, I seriously cannot thank you enough for allowing me to part of your special day. We had so much fun with you.  Here are a few of our favorites from your amazing night.  Congratulations again!

God Bless,

Crystal

Emily + Simon

Mr. & Mrs. Braud

St. Joseph Co-Cathedral | Foundry on the Bayou

Married: November 13, 2021

I met Emily & Simon at a wedding I photographed last year.  I remember thinking how precious they were and how fun they would be to photograph if they got married.  Not long after, Emily contacted me that she was engaged. 

Emily & Simon were married at St. Joseph Co-Cathedral in Thibodaux.  The ceremony was so special.  Emily’s brother was the priest that performed the ceremony.  How special is that??  I don’t think there was a dry eye in the cathedral.  After their beautiful ceremony, we headed to Foundry on the Bayou for a night of fun. Seriously… they are so much fun that they even extended their reception because no one wanted the night to end.  

Emily & Simon, thank you so much for trusting me to photograph your wedding.  We had so much fun with you guys.  We hope you had a great time in the Caribbean on your honeymoon.  Here are a few of our favorites from your fun filled night.  Congratulations again!

Haley + Lance

Mr. & Mrs. Rodrigue

St. Francis de Sales Cathedral | Cypress Columns

November 12, 2021

I have been looking forward to this wedding for some time now.  Haley & Lance had me laughing so hard for their engagement session, I knew they were going to be a blast on their wedding day.  They surely didn’t disappoint.  

Haley & Lance were married at St. Francis de Sales Cathedral in Houma.  It’s been a day so many family & friends have been waiting for.  This precious couple have been dating for so many years and the day finally came. I always love listening to Father Joey officiate weddings.  He always does such a beautiful job.  After portraits in the church, we traveled to Cypress Columns for a night filled with great food & fun.  Soul Survivors had everyone dancing the entire night.  It truly was a night to remember. 

Here are a few of my favorites from your beautiful wedding day!  We had so much fun with you all.  Congratulations again!  

God Bless,

Kristin + Brett

Mr. & Mrs. Benoit

St. Peter’s Catholic Church | The Shadows on the Teche

Married: October 23, 2021

Kristin & Brett are such a great couple.  Fun is the best word to describe these two!!!  They had me smiling & laughing the entire night.   

When I arrived at the house Kristin & Brett rented, the girls were all snuggled up in the bed just enjoying each other’s company.  The guys were downstairs having fun.  The room quickly filled with excitement as it drew closer to getting ready and making sure these two didn’t see each other.    

Kristin & Brett were married at St. Peters Church in New Iberia.  Brett’s foot pop when he kissed his wife was my favorite. After the ceremony we all second lined to the reception.  Everyone had a blast dancing in the streets of New Iberia.  The reception kicked off under the oak trees at The Shadows on the Teche.  No Idea got the party started and the dance floor wasn’t empty the entire night.  Kristin & Brett are surrounded by so many great friends and family. They even have some great dance moves too.  It was a beautiful night celebrating this couple.  They ended the night with a sparkler exit as they prepare to leave for Iceland. 

Here are a few of my favorites from your fun filled night!  We had so much fun with you all.  Congratulations again!  

God Bless,

Crystal

Bethany + Benton

Mr. & Mrs. Bourgeois

St. Joseph Co-Cathedral | Bourgeois Family Home

Married: October 16, 2021

When Bethany first called me to check my availability, we immediately hit it off.  She scheduled a consultation to meet in person and I think we were at my studio for hours.  As I got to know her more and more, we both knew it was meant to be!  How could I not love her… my daughter has the same name! 

Oh, what a beautiful day their wedding day was!!!  A cool front past the night before and it was a perfect day to have an outdoor reception!  When I arrived at Benton’s grandparents’ home, the decorators were putting the last-minute touches on everything and hair & makeup was finishing up.  Bethany had so many sentimental touches to her day and really thought everything out.  From wearing her Mom’s wedding shoes to a special patch from her uncle’s shirt, she had a piece of her loved ones with her the entire day.  

Bethany & Benton were married at St. Joseph Co-Cathderal in Thibodaux.  Father Carl added so many special touches to their ceremony.  We stayed for formal portraits in the church after and then headed to Benton’s grandparents’ home for the reception.  Lights were strung across the backyard and the tables were all set for a fun night of dancing & visiting.  Bethany’s Dad sang for the couples first dance.  The Groove got the party started and the dance floor wasn’t empty the entire night.  One of my favorite moments during their reception was when their flower girl sang “Hurricane”.  

Bethany & Benton, thank you so much for letting me be part of your amazing day!  We had a blast celebrating with you and your beautiful family.  

Here are a few of my favorites from your beautiful wedding day!  Congratulations again!
