Angela + Justin // Married

Tucked away in the French Quarter are all these hidden little gems known as courtyards, and they are the perfect place for small, intimate weddings! It was the beautiful little courtyard at Hotel Provincial that played host to the destination wedding of Angela and Justin on Memorial Day weekend, and it was the perfect setting for a gathering of their closest family and friends. After the sweetest first look, we took the bride and groom on a French Quarter walk, and we only had to cross the street from Hotel Provincial to find some of the prettiest balconies and colorful building facades in the French Quarter! We then ventured back inside for the wedding ceremony, where the couple not only exchanged vows with one another, but the bride spoke vows to the groom’s children … and honestly, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place!! After the wedding, a celebratory second-line around the Quarter kicked the celebration into high gear! Congratulations to you guys … we wish you a lifetime of love, laughter, and happy times like you shared in New Orleans!!

Julie + Brent // Married

 

New Orleans is such a special place to Julie and Brent. While she was living in the French Quarter, he was visiting during French Quarter Fest. A chance meeting while he was exploring the music and festivities turned into a lunch invitation and the rest, as they say, is history! So it was only natural that seven years later, they returned to New Orleans to be married. The wedding took place in a beautiful garden setting at the Hermann-Grima House with the delicate garden theme and color palette interwoven through every last stunning detail of the wedding, from the florals to the favors. But the real star of the show was the bride’s dress which was custom made by designer, Claire Pettibonne. I will forever refer to this wedding as “the one with the dress.” As we walked through the French Quarter for pre-ceremony portraits, literally everyone that laid eyes on the dress emitted a sigh, an ooh, or an ahhhhh!! And of course, the bride that wore the dress was absolutely radiant as she moved about with the gracefulness of a fairytale princess!!

After the wedding the reception party moved over to the adjoining courtyard at Broussard’s, where after a round of heartfelt toasts, guests were treated to dinner and dancing. The night wrapped up as the bride and groom lead the party on an amazing second-line parade through the French Quarter, complete with The Kinfolk Brass Band and Mardi Gras Indians. We left the happy couple and their crew dancing under the light of a full moon at Pat O’Brien’s. The whole event was truly magical! Congratulations to Julie and Brent and wishing you many, many years of happiness!

Kelly + Jimmy // Married

“Every time I look at him, I just see love!”, Kelly told me over and over again as the night wore on.  I just smiled quietly to myself … she didn’t have to tell me that, it was written all over the many, many expressions on her face.  She could barely contain it.  We had waited a very long time to photograph this wedding … one year to the date it was originally supposed to happen, and it was finally happening on one of the most glorious spring days to date.

When we arrived, the bride’s get ready room was already buzzing with excitement and energy and the love that Kelly’s large family had for her oozed from every crevice of the room.  Meanwhile, in the groom’s room, Steve was catching all of the sweetness of the guys getting ready with the couple’s little one looking on in wide-eyed wonder.  When Kelly and Jimmy finally met for their first look, the emotions flowed and it was just magical!

When the wedding ceremony finally began, the setting sun created the most glorious backdrop for this beautiful love story. The couple exchanged their personal vows, wiped tears of joy, and took a bow of celebration!!  Everyone then gathered in the barn for a fun, festive evening filled with delicious food and dancing.  When the festivities ended, the bride and groom left their guests via a sparkler send-off, made only more enchanting by the glow of the full moon!  Congratulations again, Kelly and Jimmy!  We hope you continue to only see love when you look at each other for many years to come!!
