Weekend Away

We traveled to Many, Louisiana over the weekend for a wedding.  Our first time to this state. This is a small town about 4 hours from New Orleans.  Isn't this amazing?  Hand painted by shilohstardust in IG.  This tree invited you into the festivities at The Lake House.

Loved this yellow house on their property.  It overlooks the river

There were two tents near the shore, one round and this one.  All decked out inside.  Tents by Shelter Co. Link is here

The lake a great animal floats  Loved the unicorn one! This was just the beginning of a magical weekend

The beautiful lake view

Simply elegant vases and flowers graced all of the tables

Me and the man!

Sunset reminding me so much of my Dad, for the wedding date was his birthday.  He would have been 90 on that day. Happy birthday in heaven Dad. He loved to take pictures of sunsets. This one was a beauty!

Painted stairs - so creative and fun
Grilled oysters on the half shell.  So impressive and delicious!  Their food all weekend was amazing!  Caterer was Maisonlacatering on IG and their website is here

Night and the beautiful candles shining through.  This was a magical weekend.  You could feel the love from friends and family for this couple. They had burning love for each other. Gotta love that.

Pages from my Sketchbook. Flying, ironing, preparation for the elements and the yellow house and below is a recap of the weekend wedding!  Love at the Lake House


  1. Looks like a wonderful place for a wedding. I am sure you found a lot of inspiration for your sketchbook and future projects.


  2. Jamie,
    Will you please offer a sketching/journaling workshop sometime soon? I just love your style and would like to learn more about how you do it.

    I'm the one who lives in Ashland who wants you to come here to teach, but I'd be happy to travel to where you are as well. Please think about it!
