Industrial Wedding in Louisiana

Industrial Wedding in Shreveport, Louisiana Caroline’s Industrial Wedding in Shreveport, Louisiana incorporated her southern roots with her love for all things natural. Caroline envisioned her wedding day to be organically beautiful, so an outdoor wedding was perfect! The industrial reception venue she chose with high ceilings and grand windows suited her vision.   “We were going for a traditional southern wedding! With it being April and an outside wedding we wanted everything to be natural and airy. Our color scheme was mint green and cream with blush and gold accents. We didn’t have much DIY going on! I’m not very crafty and was finishing up dental school while planning the wedding. We did incorporate a lot of pieces that belong to family members. The buffet at the altar is my mom’s and the china on the wedding party table was my great grandmothers! One DIY project my mom did for me was the picture charms tied on my bouquet of family members that had passed away and couldn’t be there with us!”    Her wedding dress from The Bridal Boutique by MaeMe featured a scalloped lace neckline and fit beautifully with her rustic, romantic setting. Caroline’s bouquet incorporated hydrangeas, dahlias and peonies. My advice to couples planning now would be don’t get bogged down with the details. At the end of our planning there were several small details I wanted and almost gave up on but am so glad I stuck to what I wanted! It made our day much more personal and our guests really appreciated the small touches!   Vendors: Wedding dress: The Bridal Boutique by MaeMe// Venue and...
