On a beautiful Spring day, Kelli and Devin tied the knot on the lake front in Mandeville.  I am absolutely in love with Mandeville and the amazing sunset view. The Lakehouse is an awesome venue for any special occasion. The ambiance, food, and beautiful views are amazing!

Kelli and Devin’s love shines through the emotion in these photos!

How They Met

Kelli and Devin met on the lakefront when they were in high school, but it wasn’t until they were both in Lafayette in college until they started dating. They have now been together for 8 YEARS!

How Devin Proposed

Devin proposed to Kelli on the lakefront where they met. What a sentimental way to start their journey together?!

Enjoy the wedding and don’t forget to share or pin your favorites!
