Travis’ groom’s cake was a replica of his business logo (he’s a fishing charter captain). His company’s slogan is “Catch a Good Time,” so the baker changed it to “great wife” for a cute play on words.

The bride wore a strapless ivory gown by Casablanca with a trumpet skirt and a beaded Alencon lace bodice. Because the dress was so detailed, Annah chose a pair of chandelier earrings and a simple bracelet to accessorize her look.

Annah & Travis in Natchez, MS

Though they lived an hour and a half away in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, they selected the large southern plantation based on the beautiful scenery and the many good reviews they had heard about the place. Once they had selected the Dunleith Historic Inn as their wedding venue, Annah and Travis decided to let the historic antebellum-style site dictate their entire wedding theme. The Bride Annah Hebert, 25, insurance underwriter The Groom Travis Lovell, 29, charter boat captain The Date March 6 To capture a pre-Civil War era atmosphere, Annah selected simple and elegant details, such as ivory flowers, plenty of candlelight, and a neutral color palette. Southern belle-style dresses for the maids and tan suits for guys were the perfect complement to the plantation wedding theme.
