Elizabeth and Patrick were married in late February at Rayne Methodist Church, with a reception following at Marche. This was the second wedding I’ve had the honor of planning for this family, and it was just as much fun as her sister, Susannah’s wedding, the year before. Yes, they planned two weddings less than a year apart! Since I already knew Elizabeth pretty well from planning Susannah’s wedding, and I knew her parents very well, there was none of the “getting to know your client stage.” I already knew what they liked, how they liked to do things, what they worried about, etc. It was awesome being able to go through this with them a second time, and really enjoy all the time we had together—I think overall there was less stress and worry, seeing that they had just been through a wedding, trusted me, trusted our other vendors, and were pros at this! I think I talked to at least one member of the Howard family at least once a week for close to two years! All that to mean when the wedding arrived, I was especially excited to see these vows, because I truly felt like we were all good friends.
The only one I didn't know well before this wedding was the groom, Patrick. From the first time I met him I could tell he was such a sweet, genuine, and laid back guy, and these two are perfect together!
The ceremony was at Rayne Methodist, the same church Susannah and Karl had been married in. I loved the look on Patrick’s face when he saw Elizabeth walk down the aisle, and I definitely got a little teary-eyed sending off Elizabeth and her dad, Jonathan down the aisle!
The reception at Marche was a blast! The venue was stunning, with greenery and lighting everywhere, by Poppy & Mint & Luminous Events. Elizabeth and Patrick seemed so calm all day, and were just so joyful and happy. After the party got going, we passed around glow sticks and glowing head pieces, which everyone had so much fun with. By the end of the night, the bride and groom were on the stage dancing. I loved looking through these pictures and reminiscing about how much FUN everyone was having! Truly one of my favorite weddings I’ve been a part of!
