Leah and Adrian's Baton Rouge wedding

This Baton Rouge wedding story began a long time ago when Leah and Adrian were in high school. But, since I wasn't there for all of that, we'll just tell the story of the wedding day.
This wedding day for the girls anyway, started at the Hilton downtown, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The girls rented a conference room for everyone to get ready.

This picture looks so calm, but really, I was in the middle of the road, people were walking all around us, traffic was driving around, people were pulling up for valet parking, and you could hear the sounds of Live after 5 in the distance. Leah's mom was buzzing around us, taking things to the car, while we took pictures.
 While the girls were doing their thing at the Hilton, Brooke, our 2nd photographer, was with the guys at a house where they were sporting their team colors.
 The limo picked everyone up in shifts and moved the wedding party to Magnolia Mound Plantation's pavilion. As the dark rolled in, the weather was just perfect- not too hot, not too cold, and not raining. Leah and Adrian didn't want to see each other, but she teared up a little when she touched his hand on the other side of the big magnolia tree.

 Ten bridesmaids and ten groomsmen makes for one heck of a "wedding party," quite literally. So, the entire wedding party loaded up on a party bus and headed to the Addis Community Center for the reception.
 There was a little live entertainment on the party bus...

 As I took a bathroom break, in walked Leah and her helpers to bustle the dress, while outside, the party was rolling.
 I've forgotten how old they said this grandfather was, but I want to say it was close to 99 or 100.
Adrien and the groomsmen decided to do a "cake cutting" picture.
 And then, there's always getting iced during the garter toss.
