How do you make a grand entrance at a wedding on the Louisiana bayou? By boat, of course! For this editorial, the happy couple arrive at Palmetto’s on the Bayou by boat on picturesque Bayou Bonfouca. This waterfront restaurant and Acadiana-style event venue is located at historic Robert’s Landing in Slidell, Louisiana, about a 45 minute drive across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans.

For this editorial, Erin of It’s Your Time Events, envisioned a rustic, outdoor ceremony on the covered deck at Palmetto’s on the Bayou. With Louisiana Cypress trees as the backdrop, she incorporated burlap draping from ELEMENT with fresh florals accenting the altar and chandelier, designed by Grow With Us Florist, and elegant gold lanterns from Firefly Ambiance to line the aisle.

A tiny green frog hopped right onto this “Happily Ever After” sign (from Royal Events) and into our hearts. This is what we call Serendipity.
