Welcome to my blog! This is both my online business and personal journal where I share all of my photography and business projects! Allow me to introduce myself...I am Catherine Guidry, a Louisiana wedding photographer. I was raised in a small town but consider myself a big dreamer. My favorite things in life are spending time with friends and family, bike riding with my husband and working on new creative projects! I am all about meeting new friends and can't wait to meet you!
Champagne, Blush Pink & Ivory
What adjectives best describe your wedding?
Chaotic, Emotional & Amazing
Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
We chose St. Martin De Tours because I love historical places and the grounds there are just GORGEOUS.
What was your favorite wedding purchase?
Wedding cake – it was the cutest little thing at our reception.
What was your best wedding day memory?
My favorite wedding memory is my impromptu speech. I was so overcome with joy and happiness and wanted to let my family know how much I appreciated each of them and to thank everyone who was there to witness and share our love. After fifteen years of being together and countless inquiries from the world on our nuptials, it was like a happily ever after to a seemingly never-ending love story.

How did you incorporate your personalities into the wedding?
The overall look of the reception – from the sign in table to the caged money box (made by yours truly) – I envisioned it all and my family helped to execute it day of.
I chose champagne – not gold – because I am moderately flashy. Blush pink because I am soft and pink and love anything cute. And ivory on account that it is a tainted shade of purest color – white. After all, we are imperfect and so was our wedding day! LOL
The groom was incorporated by way of him loving and agreeing with everything that I planned for our big day. As he should because that meant he got to take the easy road – I married a very smart man.
What is your wedding song?
This is what you came for – Calvin Harris & Rihanna
