Their story started when Dan proposed in the gazebo at Tori's childhood home, so of course the gazebo was the perfect place to host a private estate wedding to commit to each other in front of friends and family. Tori's love for all things spring and floral, and of course- her Louisiana roots and their love for family. 

We absolutely loved working alongside Kayla and her planning and design team at Jackson Southard Events, and found ourselves lost in all of the perfectly placed elements. 

T+D asked us to capture their intimate rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. Sitting around a candle-lit tablescape, family and friends shared how much they love these two, and how they knew they were perfect for each other. In fact, Dan's Mom called Tori, his "miracle."

We believe these intimate moments are what make the wedding weekend so special- and love that we can encapsulate them to be remembered forever.


The Story

[3:03] The bride wore a custom Yaniv Persy gown with a cape that left us all speechless!

[5:30] Moments after their first dance and cake cutting bad weather threatened to stop the party. After a brief intermission in the house watching the radar- the party resumed safely.
