Wedding Wednesday | Anne Z. | A New Orleans Bride

Anne was a lovely New Orleans bride that we had this last year with one of our fav photographers Olivia Lott (who happens to be a past bride as well!). Anne kept her look very classic with a low up style and soft natural makeup. The vintage inspired feathered hair piece she choose worked perfectly with her simple, yet elegant style. 


Before the "I DO"s : 

The Beginning...:

Anne and her now husband, Jacob, knew each other in high school through mutual friends and reconnected several years later by the same friends...all the feels!!!

The Proposal :

"He carried the ring around in his pocket for a whole day while we were visiting in New Orleans and later told me that he had planned several times to ask while wandering through the city. He eventually asked before getting ready the next morning when I asked him which outfit to wear and he said, 'I don't care as long as you wear this too (holding the ring)'"
