KARA AND BEN'S WEDDING

October, 2009 in Baton Rouge

"Although we are not originally from Baton Rouge, we have both lived here since college (we met at LSU). Baton Rouge is a great city for a wedding because there are plenty of nice venues to choose from and the city has a lot to offer out-of-town guests. October is a great time of year for a wedding in BR; the weather was great for us on our wedding day - highs in the 70s and upper 40s in the evening. Also, October marks the end of hurricane season - which is important to consider when you have a wedding in south La."

Band:

Carbon Copy Band

6005 Chattanooga Drive
Baton Rouge, LA, United States

"You cannot go wrong with this band! They were very professional, played all the songs we wanted to hear and were not too loud (this was important to us). Best of all, they are very reasonably priced compared to other local cover bands. Highly recommend!"

Invitations Vendor:

Blush Paperie

Baton Rouge, LA, USA

"Online store located in Miami, Fla. - Michele was so helpful when we were deciding on wording and styles. Her designs are modern, but still very classy. She can also do custom designs. (A little on the pricier end, but this wasn't something we wanted to skimp on)."

Photographer:

Thompson Photography

5800 One Perkins Place Dr # 5E
Baton Rouge, LA, USA

"We are very pleased with our wedding photos. Brody and Katy were very professional, and we got through the formal pics very quickly. Also, they dressed up for our wedding. I've been to weddings where the photographer dresses in a polo and jeans - this is tacky! The only drawback with this photographer is that you cannot get digital files or "rights" to your photos. This, however, was not very important to us."

Registry Vendor:

Bed, Bath and Beyond

9700 Mentor Ave
Mentor, OH, United States

"We went to the BB&B on Siegan; we found the bridal registry staff to be very friendly and helpful both before and after the wedding. Save up those 20% off coupons, because you can still use them after the deadline!"

Tuxedo Vendor:

Squires

9067 Mansfield Road
Shreveport, LA, United States

"We used Squires for the free limo deal. The limo, obviously, is not really "free" because the groomsmen pay for it in higher rental tuxedo rental fees (I think ours were about $150 each). We went for the classic black tuxedo and bow tie - but if you are interested in different colors and styles, they have it all."

Wedding Day Beauty Vendor:

Shear Image

5568 Main Street
Zachary, LA, United States

"Shear Image (225.658.7771) is located in Zachary, but they can travel to do hair for weddings. My cousin is a stylist there, and she did my hair for my bridal portraits and the wedding. The ladies there are really nice and very professional - also, their prices are much more reasonable than the big-name salons in BR."

Wedding Fashion Vendor:

Curvy Brides - Wedding Fashion Vendor - 1417 San Marino Ln, Denton, Texas, 76210, USA

Bravo Bride

1417 San Marino Ln
Denton, Texas 76210, USA
940 735 8397

"Highly recommend! I bought my dress, veil and the flower girl's dress here. It is a site where girls buy and sell used wedding dresses and accessories. My designer gown was brand new and never worn - I bought it from a girl who canceled her wedding for a fraction of the price she paid for it. Check this out before buying a gown, slip or veil - you won't be sorry."

Wedding Fashion Vendor:

Jeannine's Bridal

10510 Airline Highway
Baton Rouge, LA, United States

"Bridesmaid dresses and wedding gown steaming - Note that this bridal store is now closed. The only reason I am mentioning it is because I don't want this to happen to anyone else. At the time I picked out bridesmaid dresses, the store was fully stocked and seemed to be doing well. However, by the time my girls got there to try on and pick out their dresses a few weeks later, they had sent all samples back because they were planning on closing soon. I was not happy about this because we had already ordered some of the gowns. They assured me that our dresses would be in before closing (which they were and everything turned out fine) - but I was worried nonetheless. Also, I paid for 2 wedding gown steamings and they closed before doing my second."

Ceremony:

Christ the King Catholic Church - Ceremony - Highland Road at Dalrymple Drive, Baton Rouge, LA, United States

Christ the King Catholic Church

Highland Road at Dalrymple Drive
Baton Rouge, LA, United States

"As a member of the parish, I didn't consider another church for the ceremony. We were very pleased with the musicians and the coordinator. The church was lovely, as always."

Reception:

White Oak Plantation - Reception - 17660 George O'Neal Road, Baton Rouge, LA, 70817, United States

White Oak Plantation

17660 George Oneal Rd
Baton Rouge, LA, United States

"White Oak took care of everything. The grounds and the house looked absolutely stunning the night of our wedding, and the food was amazing. We had a seated dinner, which I highly recommend. The prices were comparable to the buffet, and it was much nicer. Rachel Smith was our coordinator - she did a fabulous job. Roslyn, the sales associate was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. We have zero regrets with WOP!"

Hotel:

Drury Inn & Suites - Baton Rouge, LA - Hotel - 7939 Essen Park, Baton Rouge, LA, United States

Drury Inn & Suites - Baton Rouge, LA

7939 Essen Park
Baton Rouge, LA, United States

"I cannot say enough great things about this hotel. It is fairly new, in a central location, very clean, friendly staff, delicious breakfast (included), and flat screen TVs in all rooms. It is also pet-friendly, which was a plus for us because our parents have dogs. The rates were also competitive."

Restaurant:

LSU Faculty Club

Highland Rd & Raphael Semmes Rd
Baton Rouge, LA 70803

"Rehearsal dinner location. Great food and good service. It was cool and rainy the night of our rehearsal, and they had the fireplaces lit, which was really nice. Also, it is within walking distance of the church."
