Joann & Christian: The Beginning

When I first met Joann last year at our first meeting about her wedding photography, I knew right away she was going to be not only a wonderful bride but a friend. She is an amazingly talented business owner of two small companies that she created: Good Wishes Greeting Cards and her newest adventure Grandma Dee's (nuts & assorted goodies). Then I was able to meet Christian, and he had me at "I graduated from LSU." When Christian found out I was as big of a LSU fan as him, he was sold! I just can't say enough good things about these two. They are both two of the sweetest, most genuine people that I have met. I am so grateful that they choose me to capture their memories.
Since most of their families are from Chicago, Orlando, New Orleans and a few other places, they were able to have 3 days of fun (and let me tell you, this bunch knows how to party). Beginning with the Bachelor/Bachelorette drinks at Casa Marina and then the Rehearsal Dinner at Palm Valley Gardens. To start it all off, here are some of the party pictures from the two nights. Stay tuned for the Wedding pictures coming soon!

First a little fun with the wedding party and close friends....

And then the Rehearsal at Palm Valley Gardens.... it was a great night with pig roasting, a cigar roller (which Joann suprised Christian with), fish feeding, a great photo slide show and lots of laughing.
