    Happy Monday!  I’m so excited to start the week off with this photo series from my trip to Oak Alley plantation in Louisiana.  The south has a great charisma to me and the charm of the Antebellum architecture completely won my heart.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a long time then you know my appreciation of any Greek revival column has always been well documented in the background of my pictures, especially when I spent more time shooting uptown in NYC.  There’s just something about the clean order of them that is always so aesthetically pleasing to me.  Now, when you embark on a journey out to these grand mansions it’s clearly important to wear the biggest hat you can find with the biggest bow you can find along with a sweet dress fit for a stroll along the porches.

    Oak Alley is known for its line of 300 year old Oak trees that line the entrance to the house.  The coolest part about them is that they pre-date the house and no one knows who planted them or why.  It’s a bit of a mystery and I LOVE a good history mystery.  There are so many other places I want to discover in the area and I’m already on the hunt for a few more big hats and fancy frocks to come along with me for the adventure that I’ll be sure to document!

    * Thanks to my wonderful boyfriend for taking these photos while we visited :-) He did such an amazing job!

      You should go to Nottoway in White Castle! It’s about an hour from Baton Rouge and is the most beautiful plantation in LA.
