Amanda & Joel at Forrest Grove Plantation, Denham Springs, LA

Amanda Dedeaux and Joel Lanclos got married on March 19th, 2011, at Forrest Grove Plantation in Denham Springs, LA. Amanda chose black, white, and red to be her wedding colors. I loved the detailed bridesmaids dresses and the black and white accessories, including the bride's cake. The groom's cake was really neat too.

This was an afternoon wedding filled with family, friends, and dancing. Forrest Grove Plantation deserves applause for saving the day by pitching in and covering the chairs at the last minute!

Sometimes (actually, most of the time) something  unexpected happens at weddings. For this time, it was something unexpected on my end!! When the ceremony ended and the reception began, the daddy/daughter dance was next up. Amanda and Mr. James began dancing slowly to "Butterfly Kisses," when all of a sudden, the music changed to a hip-hop song, and they both began to dance to a choreographed dance! It had everyone in the crowd rolling. The songs changed two or three times, and then ended back on "Butterfly Kisses." I was laughing hard, but was also so touched that a daddy and daughter could have such a fun and close relationship.

The junior bride seemed so pleased to be in her dress that matched "Aunt Birdie's" dress!

Thanks again to Emily Folk for being my 2nd photographer at this wedding.
