Cynthia & Kevin, Baton Rouge Wedding

Cynthia and Kevin's wedding ceremony, March 20th 2011, was my first to do at the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge, LA. What a beautiful location! My favorite shot of the entire day is the one of Kevin and Cynthia on the staircase. The natural light in the Old State Capitol, along with the color, details, and architecture, are breathtaking and make for the perfect setting for a formal wedding. Jordan of Southern Chic Events was the wedding coordinator for the day, and I really enjoyed her professionalism, the schedule she gave me in advance, and her ability to handle anything that came up. The reception was at the LSU Faculty Club, which happens to be probably my favorite reception venue that I've shot at recently. I don't know if it's a favorite because of the windows on opposite sides that let in lots of light, or maybe the balcony where I can get lots of shots from above, or maybe it's the outdoor porch where people can relax and still see all the action inside, or maybe it's just because it's on the LSU campus. Or, maybe it's because the food is truly fabulous. Whatever the reason, I LOVE shooting receptions at  the LSU Faculty Club!

A list of some of my favorite unique things about this wedding...
1. Cynthia's dress
2. They did the "second line" dance.
3. A cookie bar
4. They had a "signature drink," the rainstorm, which was what they drank on their first date.
5. The faculty club (see above.)
6. The food, provided by the faculty club
7. Plenty of time to take the "before" pictures in a separate location

The girls and guys pictures were both taken near the Hilton hotel in downtown Baton Rouge, where the girls got ready. The guys' were quite entertaining while taking their pictures. We are also planning a trash-the-dress session with Cynthia and Kevin to be coming up soon.

Thanks to Danielle Aucoin for being my 2nd photographer at this wedding, and for also covering their rehearsal dinner while I was shooting Amanda and Joel's wedding!
