You feel at ease because I connect with who you are.
Your wedding bestie
When you think of a Wedding Bestie, what do you think about? If you said, “someone who is there to talk all things wedding, to lead me in the right direction, and to elevate my wedding to the best it can be,” then you are in the right place! BTEPD couples call us their Wedding Bestie due to the fun planning journey, the sigh of relief they get when we walk in the door on their wedding day, and the fact that we follow through on being authentic, personable, and supportive.
meet your planners.
authentic. personable. supportive.
I am so excited that you are here!!
I am a small town girl at heart from many different places in Louisiana, Breaux Bridge, Iota, Carencro, Baton Rouge, Prairieville, and now in Lutcher with my amazing Hubs, William. Living in all of these different places has built me into the person I am today. That is why I do not service just one area in Louisiana. Different places in Louisiana built me, so many different places in Louisiana build this company.
Being raised in South Louisiana, the Cajun French phrase “Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler” (Let’s make the good times roll) was something I heard often, hence where the business name came from.
Growing up, I always had a knack for planning and making sure that the vision comes to life. I have been planning weddings and other events since 2019 but finally had the opportunity to make the business a reality.
This career is something that I quickly fell in love with. I love the moments when the vision clicks in your head and your dreams are coming true. I love that moment on the wedding day when you see yourself fully dressed. I love the connection we form throughout the process, leaving me not wanting your wedding night to end. I love being the go to support system that my clients need.
It is the connections, the moments, the love for all things people and weddings that make this career not seem so much like a job.
I cannot wait to plan a good time with you! Chat with you soon!!
My hubs, William and I have been together going on 6 years. We got married on March 20, 2021. I cannot imagine my life without him. He keeps me grounded throughout this crazy life. He is my soulmate and bestfriend.
COOKING & MOVIES ON A RAINY DAY
I seriously love nothing more than a rainy day cuddled up with William, window blinds open, a pot of fresh white beans, gumbo or a good spaghetti cooking on the stove while a rom-com is streaming on the tv.
ALL THINGS SEAFOOD
Give ya girl some boiled seafood and I will for sure be doing the happy dance. Even better when we go crabbing, catch it, come home, and William boils it. Call me biased, but no one boils as good as he does.
It’s Carmen here — I am not only a certified wedding planner but I am also a wife, Mother, and Gam!
When I am not pursuing dreams with my daughter, you can find me cooking, hanging out with my neighborhood friends, or shopping and antiquing for new fun things.
I have always supported Lindsey’s dreams and passions. Being able to be her right-hand woman in this journey is truly something that I will be able to cherish forever.
I love being that addition to the vendor team that gets to execute someone’s special day. Being even just a small part in someone’s story is so amazing. You can come find me when you need a last-minute dress fix or an update on where we are on the timeline.
I cannot wait for the mother/daughter duo to be a part of your wedding day!!
My family, my love for them over pours. From the t-ball and football games, to the impromptu game nights on a school night. My family knows where the hiding spots are for the snack and I am sure to keep it stocked. My family is what keeps me going! Being wife, mom, and Gam will be my greatest titles.
Whether it is a work/school night, or a Friday night gearing up for the weekend, I will always be down to gather around the table for a quick round of any game or we can go until 1 a.m., your choice.
ESTATE SALES & ANTIQUES
I mean what’s better than a Saturday afternoon, loading up with my mom for a trip to an estate sale or antique store? We are bound to leave with a car full of knick-knacks.
Lindsey and her crew at Bon Temps coordinated my wedding in May and made sure everything was absolutely perfect! Lindsey really took the stress out of the wedding process and made it so fun and easy. I can’t believe how smoothly the day went. From golf carting a 100lb flower arrangement to fixing my veil when it was wonky, her team truly was there for anything. You 100% want to have Lindsey running the show on your special day. I can’t recommend Bon Temps enough for your planning and coordinating needs!
Baton Rouge, LA
Lindsey and her team were fabulous! I worked with them as a photographer and not only was the event so well done, but they went above and beyond to give everyone a timeline for the event and even a website for it. Lindsey had fabulous other vendors she curated and booked for the event. Each one was so professional and did a tremendous job.
I highly recommend Bon Temps to anyone planning an event or wedding!
