Susannah & Karl were married in an early Spring wedding at Rayne Methodist, with a reception following at The Audubon Tea Room. These two are world travelers, and have lived in multiple locations, so they had guests coming from Australia, where Karl is from, and London, New York, and San Francisco, where they make their current home.
Susannah was a very laid back bride, and knew the real focus was on marrying Karl. Because she lives in San Francisco, and her mom, Missy, lives in Baton Rouge, Missy and I did a lot of the groundwork. Susannah was very go with the flow, and I loved how she didn’t get too caught up in the details, and was just really excited about getting married!
There was rain on and off on Susannah and Karl's wedding day. We had a ton of décor planned for the back courtyard at the Tearoom, and I was watching the weather trying to decide what we would do about the rain plan. A tent went up, of course, but we also had lights in the trees and dozens of luminaries to put out on the lawn. The safe option was to place them under the tent and under the Tearoom overhang, so they were still outside, but covered from the weather. Susannah’s dad, Jonathan, made the final decision for us to the put the lights out on the lawn. The rain stopped and cleared, so I’m so glad we went with our Plan A.
This reception was a blast. The band kept everyone, including the bride and groom, on the dance floor the whole time. All their guests came to party and celebrate, and I don’t think anyone left early! Congratulations Susannah & Karl!
