Cason/Tateoka Wedding - Utah Reception

IMG_0469 Three days before they were married in Louisiana, Charlotte and Ryan had an open house/reception for all their friends and family in Utah.  They held the event in an old dairy barn that the city of Draper has restored and turned into a community event center.

Charlotte and Ryan decorated the barn with a simple, natural theme.  Charlotte made small stone bowls with succulents that were used for centerpieces, and Ryan hung a few strands of lights and flag banners from the trusses.  They did not cover the walls or take down the existing decor (small plaques and old photographs detailing the barn's history hung on the walls).  They wanted to make sure that their decorations would not interfere with the organic ambiance of the barn.

It turned out that their simple decorations were the perfect compliment to the barn's unique character.  Though it was a large building, the reception felt bright and warm, which only increased as the old barn slowly filled with  guest and family.

Wedding in The Bayou State

IMG_0710 Ryan Cason and Charlotte Tateoka were married in Baton Rouge Louisiana on Saturday October 12, 2013.  They had one reception in Utah and one in Coushatta, LA - Ryan's hometown.  I've known Ryan since he was my roommate in college and I had the privilege of following him and Charlotte around through both receptions and the wedding.  These few selected photos are from the reception and wedding in Louisiana.
