Trudie + Richard

Mr. & Mrs. Olivieri

St. Gregory Barbarigo Church | Dominique’s Wine Boutique & Bistro

Married: July 31, 2021

From the moment Trudie called me to see if I was available for her wedding, I instantly fell in love with her story.  Trudie & Richard met on Match.com and their story is just beautiful. Trudie went to church for her grandchild’s baptism and prayed that God would send her someone that put God first in his life and would put her second.  After the baptism, she opened Match.com and Richard put her as his favorite.  The rest is history… these two fell in love & have been dating for a little over five years.  

Trudie & Richard were married at St. Gregory Barbarigo Church in Houma with their family & closest friends.  Father Carl did a beautiful job officiating the ceremony.  He truly got to know the couple & their beautiful story.

The reception then followed to Dominique’s Bistro for great food, visiting & dancing.  It was a beautiful night and these two had me wiping away tears the whole evening.  

Trudie & Richard, I’m so very thankful that you chose me to document your day.  God has a beautiful journey planned for the two of you.  I have no doubt that he brought the two of you together.  May you be blessed with many many years together. 

Here are a few of my favorites from your beautiful day!  Congratulations again!  I’m so happy for the two of you. 

Love,

Crystal

Bridgette & Donnie tied the knot with close friends & family on their 7th anniversary of dating on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Maggie + Parker

Mr. & Mrs. Callais 

St. Francis de Sales Cathedral | Ellendale Country Club 

Married: July 10, 2021

I’m loving all of these high school sweetheart couples! Maggie & Parker have been together for 7 years and finally tied the knot!!  What an exciting day it was!  This group was such a blast.  I think I smiled & giggled the entire day.  Gosh… I love what I do!  

Maggie got ready at a long-time friends home.  It was the perfect location for getting ready.  Music was playing & lots of laughter filled the home.  These girls were so much fun! Liz… you need to rent your house out for bridal prep in the future! 😉  

Maggie & Parker were married at St. Francis de Sales Cathedral.  As the music began and the doors opened, Maggie couldn’t hold back her emotions.  It was so heartfelt and she was so excited to marry her high school sweetheart.  I just loved the ambiance of a candlelight ceremony. I also love Father Andre ceremonies.  He always does such a great job at getting to know the couple.  It was such a beautiful ceremony.  

The reception followed to the Ellendale Country Club.  I’ve been working with Souled Out a lot recently and it’s been so much fun.  As always, they were ready to get the party started.  The outdoor reception was filled with lots of dancing, singing along with the band and just good ol’ fun!

Maggie & Parker, your day was such a fun celebration!  We loved being surrounded by your friends and family.  Everyone was so very kind and fun!  What a beautiful new chapter you have started!  We’re so happy for you! Congratulations again!  We hope you enjoy some of our favorites from your day!

Married: June 19, 2021 

This is a day so many people have been waiting for!!  These high school sweethearts have been together for 10 years!!!  They started dating their freshman year of high school and have been together ever since!  I just absolutely love stories like this.  

Amber got ready at the new Vrbo, Rock-n-Dock, on the Intracoastal.  I was so excited to finally photograph here.  I was immediately greeted with familiar faces and Amber’s bridesmaids were willing to help in anyway.  Through the whole wedding process, Amber has been such an easy-going bride.  She was the same way on the wedding day.  So calm and ready to marry her high school sweetheart.   

Amber & Kyle were married at St. Francis de Sales Cathedral.  Father Cody was so excited to see most of Bourg residents at the wedding.  He did a wonderful job as always.  When Father Cody announced, “Mr. & Mrs. Barker”, the congregation roared! All of their guest was so excited to see these two become husband and wife.   

The reception followed to the Event Center.  Souled Out, was ready to get the party started.  The dance floor was not empty the entire night.  We had such a blast!  What a great group of friends and family this couple has.  They truly celebrated Amber & Kyle!  

Amber & Kyle, I can’t thank you enough for inviting me into your family and choosing me to document your wedding.  You two are an amazing couple and I know you will have a wonderful marriage.  Here are a few of our favorites from your amazing day!   

Congratulations again!
