St. Landry Catholic Church, Opelousas Wedding: Ashley + Gavin

On Saturday two of the most kind-hearted, sweet, loving and BEST people married each other!!! There are times I get to photograph weddings so sweet, I marvel at how lucky I am that these people found us to be their photographers. If Ashley and Gavin could get married every weekend, I would be happy!

Literally, everything went wrong during their months wedding planning and still they never lost their spark of joy and positivity. This wedding was supposed to happen back in May…and in spite of tons of obstacles I’m so happy these two are Mr. and MRS. Doucet!

A few months ago Ashley let me in on a big secret. Gavin’s lifelong dream was to own a golden-doodle dog…so she bought him a puppy as a wedding present! This all took place a few weeks before their original wedding date….fast forward to their wedding having to be rescheduled and moved to July…so the puppy continued to stay in hiding with family members. Ashley and their family have been hiding this dog from Gavin for the past 3 months!!! When she surprised him during the reception by bringing out the puppy he was SHOCKED and ECSTATIC!!! One of my favorite wedding moments of the year for sure!

This day reminds me of what weddings are truly about. Two people, completely in love, promising to spend the rest of their lives together. Plans change, vendors cancel, viruses happen…but love doesn’t fade. Congratulations, Ashley and Gavin! We love ya’ll! :)

The BEST reaction!
This entire house was literally painted to match Ashley’s wedding colors! What a happy coincidence!!!!
It was unbelievably hot on Saturday…but look at Ashley! She’s glowing :)
The sweetest daddy first look. Love these two!
Steven captured the BEST shots from his angle!
This statue standing right outside of church is in memorial of one of Ashley’s ancestors. So special!
I have to brag on this wedding party. They were so helpful and cooperative…even in the 100 degree heat!
Ashley pulled off the BEST surprise. It’s obvious by Gavin’s face he had absolutely NO IDEA!!!!
Pure JOY! He has been wanting this dog forever…what a fun moment!!!
