When we think of wildly romantic Louisiana weddings, our minds usually go straight to New Orleans because of its rich history and eclectic charm. But, after seeing these images of Darian and Logan’s wedding at Acadian Village, we are definitely adding Lafayette to our list of idyllic Louisiana wedding locations! The couple took full advantage of the charming park venue, which featured a quaint wedding chapel, an open-air reception pavilion, and secluded settings for some intimate couple portraits. The combination of a rich color palette and vintage details gave the rustic venue an elegant feel, and the couple’s laid-back personalities came through with their relaxed style and a pizza party reception. Aperture Photos did a masterful job capturing every ounce of romance and passion in this dreamy Louisiana wedding!

My wedding dress was the second dress I tried on when shopping. I fell in love with it! It was super chill with the most beautiful cap sleeves that are only connected to the dress by straps. I also wore Free People shoes and had my hair in a low messy bun. I dressed my 3 bridesmaids in different Adrianna Papell dresses. Logan and his three groomsmen got their suits from Express and they all look super dapper.
For me (the bride), the most memorable part of the day was hearing Logan’s vows. I don’t think I ever expected them to be so good much less blow mine out of the water!
Aperture Photos rocks, point blank. I didn’t even realize they were there half of the time, that’s how natural it felt. She takes real photos. I think out of 4,000 pictures, we only posed for 8. We even took them on our honeymoon for more!
We are both winos, so we made personalized wine corks for our guests. We’re still obsessed with them!

Our advice is to be in the moment because the time goes by so quickly. Grab your drink, get on that dance floor, and when Big Tymers comes on, dance your booty off!
