I truly have a warm spot in my heart for Benedict's Plantation as this is where I got married in 2007. Wow! 10 years ago!!!
I have captured a total of 5 weddings at Benedict's Plantation and it is always done so beautiful. It's really always a great experience at this venue.
Chris & Jennifer's Story
We met 6 years ago when he moved from Baton Rouge, La to Slidell, La to live with his friend. We worked at JCPenney together in Baton Rouge, La then transferred to the one here in Slidell, La. I saw him on my lunch break & he was listening to music on his phone I pretty much forced him to talk to me. Then a few days later he came to the department I worked in & gave me his number. We went on a date to the movies the next day & have been together ever since.
Chris proposed to me Christmas Eve 2014. He had wanted to propose to me on Christmas Day but somehow we got to talked about getting engaged & I had told him I didn't want to get engaged on a holiday I wanted the day we get engaged to be a separate day to remember. I think it ruined his plan. So he proposed to me early but it was still just as special since we had went to Christmas Eve mass that evening with my parents then once we got back home it was just him and I. He wanted to exchange gifts early. Then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
