Its been a good long while since I've written a personal blog and while going through my office today I realized I never shared but a couple of the photos from Aaron & I's big day or much about the wedding at all! Earlier this year I made a short little post announcing we were running off to New Orleans, LA with some of our closest friends and family and getting married! We had originally planned to get married this October here in South Bend but life and work had other plans and we decided to run off and make a trip of it since part of our love for each other is our love to travel. The South has always been a big part of who I am and my side of the family and NOLA is one of my favorite places I have ever been. Aaron, who had never been, trusted me and we gathered a list of our immediate friends & family and set our date for March 20th, 2016. We planned the entire getaway in 3 short months and I'd say we did a pretty good job! The short and sweet ceremony was held at the historic Tree of Life in Audubon Park and an informal dinner gather was held at The Maison on the jazzy Frenchman Street that evening. Two of our guests just happened to be not only my good friends but fellow photographers, Chris and Wes, who were able to capture our incredible day and for that I am forever grateful. Here are some of my favorite photos from our wedding along with the two readings from our ceremony. -Xoxo Shelby Chari

I couldn't imagine a sweeter couple to start off the 2015 wedding season with. Erica&Riley share a crazy beautiful love and their wedding day was the perfect reflection of that. From start to finish, surrounded by their closest friends and family. I had SO much fun getting to know them and capturing the love they have for each other. Here are my favorites from start to finish!
