Darren & Emily Warren


6/28/14

Headed to be the newest residents of New Mexico, Darren and Emily Warren were married in Shreveport this past June!
Saying farewell to North Louisiana with a BANG!
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Emily & Darren/1.jpg
Emily told us while planning her wedding she most enjoyed meeting the vendors! She said even the vendors they knew they weren’t going to use gave great advice and referrals reflective of their taste!
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Emily & Darren/2.jpg
Emily’s advice to brides and grooms currently planning their wedding was, “When you see something you like…buy it/make it/reserve it right then! Don’t let the small stuff weigh you down. There are too many things you “have” to do that the little things are just extras you’ll enjoy when the day comes! That way you won’t forget to do something or wish you had later!
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Emily & Darren/3.jpg
We asked Emily to tell us about her favorite part of the wedding day--- she said, “EVERYTHING! It‘s so cool to see all of the stress of planning you’ve done with your spouse/friends/family(/famry) come together! A lot of people give help and ideas to make it the best day ever and it’s great to see the outcome and get to spend the day with them!” She said her favorite memory was getting ready with her bridesmaids before the wedding and going out with friends after it was all over. “Everything flies by throughout the day! When I finally had a moment to sit it was so nice to look around and see all of the people we care about taking the time to spend the day with US!”

All of the guests at the Cash/Warren wedding had the opportunity to be big KIDS! The groom’s cake was overflowing with M&M’s, the bride’s cake was filled with such a fun ombré blue, and they provided a candy bar for everyone to enjoy, as well! But that isn’t all---along with all of the sweet treats and great music Emily and Darren provided a photo booth AND a balloon maker to keep their guests entertained! SO MUCH FUN!

As you may be able to tell by a ceremony including converse tennis shoes and the LSU fight song, the level of fun-loving personality and pure happiness was off the charts! It really was such a memorable night! In true Emily Cash Warren fashion, she finished our interview by saying, “Have fun and don’t be stressed! Don’t forget the reason behind all the planning! Hosea 2:19; Ephesians 4:2-3

Wedding of the Week! Josh & Melissa Munds

Josh & Melissa Munds

6/28/14

Set in downtown Shreveport on a sunny Saturday in June, Josh and Melissa prepared to say their vows at
Couch Chapel at First United Methodist Church!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Melissa & Josh/MUNDS1.jpg
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Melissa & Josh/MUNDS3.jpg
Melissa told us that the when the church doors opened, with the rush of organ music flooding in, the feelings she had walking down the aisle were indescribable. She said her and Josh both knew they were more ready for that moment than ever!
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Melissa & Josh/MUNDS2.jpg
Remembering the day, Melissa told us that her favorite memory of the day was how emotional and heartfelt her new husband was delivering his vows. As they each wrote their own, Melissa said it was so meaningful and special to both of them to declare their love in front of all of their family, friends and God. Having her father-in-law co-officiate the ceremony was just the icing on the cake!
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Melissa & Josh/MUNDS4.jpg
“Josh and I spent months planning a song list for our reception compiled of songs that mean the most to us. The DJ wanted to add many of his own choices and I wish I had requested that we stick solely to our list. The night was over before we knew it and many of our songs weren’t played.” Melissa advised to those planning now to coordinate with the DJ! She said, “It sets the pace of your reception. If you want things done a certain way, be sure to speak up or you may regret it!”
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Melissa & Josh/MUNDS5.jpg
My husband and I celebrated 6 years together on our honeymoon with our very first holiday – the 4th of July. Watching fireworks over the water just like we did when we first fell in love really brought it all home for us!

Jared & Brittany Carter

5/24/14

Brittany and Jared were married in late May at the BEAUTIFUL Creekwood Gardens in Simsboro, LA! Friends and family from near and far gathered to watch them say, “I do!”
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Brittany & Jared/1.jpg
After months of planning the day was finally here! Brittany said her favorite part leading up to the ceremony was getting ready with all of her bridesmaids at The Dove House in Arcadia! “Entertaining as always, they kept me from stressing out!
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Brittany & Jared/2.jpg
Brittany described to us her experience as she walked down the aisle. “I was excited and super nervous all at the same time! When I saw Jared in his suit waiting to take my hand I felt amazing. I knew when he looked at me this would be the start of a happy, fun, long, amazing marriage.
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Brittany & Jared/3.jpg
A perfect day in every sense of the word, Brittany told us she wouldn’t change a thing about their wedding day! Looking back, her favorite memory was dancing to “their song” (My Kind of Crazy by Brantley Gilbert). “It was the song he proposed to and we would always dance to it in our living room. I loved being able to finally dance to it together as a married couple!

Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Carter!!

Adam & Jessi Dodson

9/28/14

Adam and Jessi were married in late-September at the gorgeous Beau Jardin in Natchitoches! A total DIY wedding that turned out beautifully!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Jessi & Adam/Jessi&Adam_1.jpg

We asked Jessi to describe how she felt walking down the aisle, she said, “We decided to do a ‘first look’. {Jessi also told us she highly recommends brides to consider doing a first look!} We wrote letters to each other and read them before the big reveal. Reading his letter made me even more excited to see him. I felt anxious, excited, and had butterflies like crazy!”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Jessi & Adam/Jessi&Adam_2.jpg

We asked Adam & Jessi if there was anything they would do differently if they could do it all again and they said, “We would have eaten more of our YUMMY food! Maison Louisiane did a fantastic job and we were so busy with the wedding duties that we didn’t get to enjoy it as much as would have liked to---but shrimp and grits were our FAVORITE!”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Jessi & Adam/Jessi&Adam_3.jpg

Jessi told us that her favorite part of the wedding day was playing the “Shoe game” with some of wedding party! She said everyone was laughing and having a great time and she loved looking around seeing everyone so happy!

Wedding of the Week! Jason & Lauren Ross

Jason & Lauren Ross

10/26/13

This week’s Wedding of the Week is that of Mr. & Mrs. Ross! These Texarkanians were married this past October in Scott, AR!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Lauren & Jason/Lauren & Jason_1.jpg

Lauren’s answer to our first question was one we hadn’t heard before--and we love it! We asked the newly Mrs. Ross what her favorite part of the wedding planning process was and she said, “The registry! I know it sounds greedy, but it was a really wonderful experience picking out things to build our home together. We had so much fun together and it made the focus real!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Lauren & Jason/Lauren & Jason_2.jpg

When we asked Lauren to give advice to brides who are currently planning their wedding she said, “DEEP BREATHS! It is so overwhelming – the tiny details that are important but go unnoticed. In everything you do, make sure it is a reflection of you both (it’s his wedding, too). Above all, go on dates where you DON’T talk about the wedding at all—it’s reenergizing.

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Lauren & Jason/Lauren & Jason_3.jpg

Lauren told us that her favorite part of the wedding day was giving a necklace to her new stepdaughter in place of a unity candle---and you can tell by the pictures how emotional and happy they are to have officially become a family!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Lauren & Jason/Lauren & Jason_4.jpg

Humble as can be, Lauren told us she probably had the most amazing, gifted bridal party ever and credits the entire success of their wedding to them and her parents!

Wedding of the Week! Matt & Bethany Malone

Matthew & Bethany Malone
10/6/12

A chilly afternoon in early October, Bethany and Matt were married at the Dixie Gin, just outside of Shreveport. When we asked Bethany what her favorite part of the wedding day was, she said, “My favorite part of the wedding day was getting ready with all my girls and anticipating seeing my future husband! I also loved having all of our family and friends there to show their support of our marriage. It meant the world to us!”
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Bethany & Matt/1_1.jpg
A true merchandiser at heart, Bethany told us her favorite part of the wedding planning process was deciding on the decor for the ceremony and reception. “There were so many different ways to decorate at the Gin and it was exciting to be able to personalize it and pick exactly what we wanted! It turned out absolutely perfect!”
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Bethany & Matt/2.jpg
Full of genuine happiness, Bethany described how she felt walking down the aisle—“As I was walking down the aisle, I felt like everything was a dream. I felt like every girl should feel on their wedding day, overcome with joy, love, and appreciation for not only the man who would become my husband but also each person there to witness it. I was also trying very hard not to cry because I still wanted to look pretty! “

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Bethany & Matt/3.jpg

Bethany’s advice to those currently planning a wedding: “Don't procrastinate! If you think of something you CAN do now, don't wait. Get it taken care of and check it off the list! You'll be a lot less stressed when it's all taken care of ahead of schedule.”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Bethany & Matt/4.jpg

We asked Bethany if she would have done anything differently on her wedding day—She laughed and said, “I would have planned for cold weather instead of hot! Who would have thought that it would be 40 degrees and windy in October? It was a beautiful and perfect 75 degree night for the rehearsal, and 40 degrees the next morning! I don't think anyone was ready for that!”

And don’t they look just like Barbie and Ken?! We wish you a lifetime of happiness, Malones!

Wedding of the Week! Joel & Caroline Jurisich

Caroline Nawas & Joel Chappuis Jurisich

8/17/13

 

 

This week we are highlighting the Jurisichs! Wed late last summer, the ceremony was held at Asbury United Methodist Church. Caroline told us that her favorite part of planning her and Joel’s wedding was picking out the scripture and music for the ceremony. “Reading over the Bible and finding the perfect scriptures together made us take a step back from all the chaos that comes with wedding planning and really remember what truly matters.
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Caroline & Joel/Joel & Caroline_1.jpg

Caroline’s advice to people planning right now is to remember what is important! “If you walk into your wedding reception and there are no flowers on the table, or the food is not perfect, at the end of the day you will still be married to the love of your life. Enjoy the day! It is so easy to get caught up in the small details, but at some point take a step back to breath it all in. Also, HAVE FUN AT YOUR RECEPTION. Do not spend the entire time “making the rounds” and chitchatting with people. Say your hellos at the beginning and then hit the dance floor! If people want to talk, they’ll know where to find you. You’ve just planned a wedding, you deserve to let loose and celebrate!”
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Caroline & Joel/Joel & Caroline_2.jpg

We asked Caroline if she would do anything differently if she could do it all again. Caroline explained that she would do very little different—she wishes she had taken time for a few more candid pictures of the two of them right after the ceremony—before the dancing started!
https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Caroline & Joel/Joel & Caroline_3.jpg

We loved Caroline’s story of her favorite/funniest memory of their wedding day! She tells it like this: “Originally, we were supposed to leave our reception in ’69 Shelby GT convertible, however, it broke down a few blocks away from Scottish Rite Temple. I remember getting ready to leave the reception and my mom stopping us about two feet away from the door saying, “Caroline, there’s been a little problem. The Shelby broke down and the only other car available is an older El Camino.”  At that point, Joel and I died laughing and looked at each other like, “Well, what can you do?”  So our get-away car was a 1970s El Camino, and it turned out to be awesome and hilarious. Oh, and my uncle hung on the side for about 3 blocks which made for some entertaining pictures. Sometimes, you just have to roll with the punches!

Ryan & Megan Faler

5/5/12

This wedding holds a special place in my heart! Coming up on their anniversary, it seems only right to make our next Wedding of the Week Megan & Ryan Faler---and all of the gorgeousness that went along with it!
(Check out that good looking bridal party, too!!;))

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Megan & Ryan/Ryan&Meg_1_2.jpg

Just by the (BEAUTIFUL) pictures, you can tell a lot of work went into planning the big day for Megan and Ryan. Megan told us that, with the help of Nealy from Chez Rivage, her favorite part of the wedding planning process was designing the décor---picking out the linens, chargers, centerpieces etc.---she followed up by saying that she tried to enjoy all of the planning, advising “The planning lasts months, but the wedding day---ONE DAY---goes by so fast. Enjoy every minute of it! And don’t stress, because no one will know if something goes ‘wrong’ except you.”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Megan & Ryan/Meg & Ryan 2.jpg

Very reminiscently, Megan explained that her favorite part of the entire day was before the ceremony. Her dad, mother and sister were all together for a few minutes alone. Her dad gave all of his girls diamond earrings to wear and told them how much he loved them. She told us that will always be such a special moment to her.

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Megan & Ryan/Ryan&Meg_3.jpg

A beautiful ceremony followed by an amazing reception, Megan and Ryan first danced to Crazy Love by Van Morrison,  cut the cake (and teased about smearing it all over each other), then danced the night away! The two love birds ended the night running through a trail of sparklers before riding off in a 1930s Dodge. “It was absolutely perfect,” Megan said.

Rob & Amy McGill

 

6/15/13

 

Rob & Amy were married this past June in Minden, LA!  Described as a vintage, New Orleans themed wedding, they told us that they talk about their wedding all the time—reminiscing on what a perfect day it was! They both say they couldn’t imagine changing a thing about their wedding day!

 

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Rob & Amy/Rob & Amy_1.jpg 
“My favorite part of the wedding planning process was picking out my dress! I loved the feeling I got when I put on the perfect dress and I imagined myself walking down the aisle. It was perfect,” Amy described.https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Rob & Amy/Rob & Amy_2.jpg

 

We asked Amy to describe how she felt as she was walking down the aisle, she said, “I was SO nervous!!  I was worried that I would trip, if I looked ok, and I had a million thoughts running through my head!”

Amy told us, “Food makes or breaks a wedding for me!” Her advice to people planning right now is, “Make sure to have plenty of food and make sure it is delicious!” She went on to say that people still talk about how great the food was at their wedding! Crawfish enchiladas were her favorite!

Amy said her favorite memory from the wedding day was wearing her grandmothers wedding dress at the reception. She said she always played dress up in it as a child and that it really meant the world to her and her grandmother to wear it on her special day. Amy said it was something she will forever treasure!

After an emotional “first look,” and a rustic outdoor ceremony, the two enjoyed their first dance as a married couple serenaded by Norah Jones’ Come Away with Me!

When we asked Morgan what her favorite part of the wedding day was she told us, “Being able to FaceTime with my grandmother who was in the hospital and unable to make it to the wedding. SO thankful for modern technology!”

Adorned with a diamond necklace made from a ring of her mother’s given by her late father, Kelsey was walked down the aisle by her older brother Erik carrying a bouquet of calla lilys, roses and hydrangeas. It was a beautiful September in Ruston and a day that was a long time coming for this happy couple!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Josh & Kelsey/Josh&Kelsey_2.jpg

Kelsey told us, “Picking out the dress of my DREAMS along with picking out decorations for the wedding with my mama, my little sister Kali, and my meme were my favorite parts of the wedding planning! I loved having them with me---so many memories were made throughout the whole process!”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Josh & Kelsey/Josh&Kelsey_3.jpg

Kelsey advised, “Enjoy the planning process and don’t get stressed out, because it all goes by WAY too fast!”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Josh & Kelsey/Josh&Kelsey_4.jpg

When we asked Kelsey what her favorite memory of the day was she said, “I loved getting ready with my bridesmaids and mother before the ceremony, but I have so many cherished memories of that day! Truly the best day I have ever had!”

Wedding of the Week! Logan & Britney Norris

Logan & Britney Norris

11/2/13

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Logan & Britney/4.jpg

These sweethearts met in high school, but didn’t start dating until 2012 and were engaged on Christmas of that year! The couple originally planned to wed after Britney graduated college---With Britney’s grandmother having serious heart problems and Logan having recently signed with the Colorado Rockies organization, the couple decided in September of 2013 that they would move the date up. Luckily enough, the perfect venue and photographer had openings on the very same day!! The only problem? The new wedding date was just 5 short weeks away!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Logan & Britney/1.jpg

We asked Britney what advice she would give to couples currently planning their wedding, Britney said, “I would probably tell people not to rush things and to enjoy every little part of the planning process. Do whatever you can to make it the wedding you’ve always dreamed of and don’t settle for anything else! Don’t let other people try and plan the wedding for you. The wedding should be about you and your future husband and everything about the day should reflect that!”

“My favorite memory of the day would have to be when my grandfather was handing me over to Logan. He placed my hand in Logan’s and was very emotional when the preacher asked who was to give me away. My grandfather then kissed me on the head and sat down. As the only father figure I have ever had, it was a very emotional moment. I’m so glad he was able to walk me down the aisle and hand me off to Logan.”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Logan & Britney/3.jpg

Britney described how she felt as she walked down the aisle: “I was so nervous!! I was walking down a hill and I thought for sure I was going to trip! Once I was able to see Logan at the end of the aisle---and he saw me for the first time---he cried and I got butterflies! I couldn’t believe it was finally happening. I felt like it was a dream! It was the moment I had waited for all day!”

Congratulations, again, Logan & Britney!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Gary & Morgan/4.jpg

This week’s Wedding of the Week is Gary & Morgan Northen! Gary and Morgan were married last August at The Bridge Community Church in Ruston followed by a reception at The Norton Building. A beautifully perfect day celebrating a couple genuinely in love!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Gary & Morgan/1.jpg

We asked Morgan, “What was your favorite part of the wedding day?”

Morgan said, “Our favorite parts were finally seeing each other at the ceremony and having a moment to spend with each other alone after the ceremony on the way to the reception. We were so anxious to see each other, so when we finally did, there was just a moment of relief."

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Gary & Morgan/2.jpg

When we asked Morgan and Gary to describe their favorite memory of their wedding day, they said, “It is so hard to just choose one favorite memory from the wedding! We have definitely enjoyed watching our wedding videos and looking through pictures to relive the whole day. Every time we watch and look at the videos and pictures, we find a new memory from the day!”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Gary & Morgan/3.jpg

After first dancing to Van Morrison’s Crazy Love and enjoying the rest of the evening under the twinkly, bistro lights at The Norton Building of Ruston, Morgan and Gary agree that they wouldn’t have done anything differently. They explained, “We had all of our friends and family there to help us celebrate one of the biggest moments in our lives. We couldn’t have asked for anything more than that.”

Surrounded by all of their closest friends, Calli and Colby agree that relaxing with their bridesmaids and groomsmen was a huge highlight of their wedding day!

We asked Calli, “What would you do differently if you could do it all over again?”

Calli said, “I would definitely have taken more pictures of Colby and I after the ceremony. We got one---then we were off to the reception.”

Micheal & Ashley Brown

4/20/13

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Ashley & Michael/00005_Header.jpg

When a bride is easy going, it’s hard NOT to translate that to the wedding day. This beautiful garden wedding from this past spring is Our Wedding Library’s very first Wedding of the Week! Chosen because of its beauty, free spirit and obvious abundance of love! Solely through the photos it’s easy to see how much fun everyone is having!

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Ashley & Michael/00001.jpg

We asked the bride, Ashley, What was your favorite part of the wedding planning process?

Ashley replied, “MY MOM! I had zero stress! I told my mom a few things I knew I wanted for sure, and she made it happen. Everything else fell into place once we booked the venue and the florist. My advice would be to take care of all of the big things and let the professionals handle the details! Everything else will work itself out!”

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Ashley & Michael/00002.jpg

Ashley, what would you do differently if you could do it all over again?

“Honestly, nothing. It was a perfect day. Zero drama, lots of happiness and love. Micheal and I loved seeing everyone we love in one place all having fun together. It doesn’t get much better than that.”

 

https://asoft9153.accrisoft.com/weddinglibr/clientuploads/Monthly Mini Bridal Fair/Wedding of the Week/Ashley & Michael/00003.jpg

Describe how you felt as you were walking towards Micheal right before the first look:

“I HOPE HE PASSES OUT BECAUSE I LOOK SO GOOD!”
Ashley followed up by letting us know that he did not in fact pass out, but they were able to share an irreplaceable, very sweet and emotional moment together with their photographer.
