The wedding we attended this past weekend was not actually ON Christmas but it was close enough to Christmas for me to classify it as a "Christmas Wedding". My friend (and workout coach), Karol's, oldest daughter got married in Baton Rouge and being only a couple of hours away, we decided what better way to spend a Friday night than helping her celebrate the nuptials.
The wedding ceremony, a traditional catholic one, was absolutely beautiful. The music was lovely. The bridesmaids all wore floor length gowns in shades of gold; none were alike. That, I really liked. Some were beaded, some were not but all, I'm sure reflected the young women's personalities. When the bride came down the aisle, I, of course, noticed her beautiful gown and veil, however, what I really liked was the fact that she was wearing a deep red lipstick. How striking this bride was with her dark brown hair and those red lips. After the ceremony we set off for the reception. I love wedding receptions for here is where the bride can really show off her style preferences.
The reception was held at White Oak Plantation owned by Chef John Folse. From the moment we drove up, I knew that this wedding reception was one I had to share with my readers.
As the evening came to a close, I was really happy that this sweet couple had invited us to attend their wedding. It was beautiful, elegant and a magical event that was just perfect in every way for this time of the year.
