Happy Mother’s Day

We want to give a shout out to all the moms out there and wish you a Happy Mother’s Day! We are so incredibly grateful to be able to do what we do and we are so lucky to be able to capture some of the sweetest mom moments EVER! We’d be lying if we told you we didn’t shed a little tear when we watch those final bride moments with mom, and holy cow, our hearts nearly exploded when we saw mom holding her son’s hand as he watched his bride walk down the aisle. Multi generational mom pics totally warm our heart because we know just how special it is to celebrate your legacy. We know just how awesome moms are and we love capturing the love you share with yours. So here’s just a few of our faves that we wanted to share in honor of all the moms everywhere! Happy Mother’s Day!!

Janine + Skip // Married

On beautiful tree lined St. Charles Avenue sits a sleepy little inn called The Columns Hotel, which wreaks of all of the splendor and charm of New Orleans as depicted in a Tennessee Williams novel.  One can just close their eyes and listen for the rumble of the streetcars rolling along the Avenue and be magically transported back 100 years to a time when life was surely slower and simpler.  Such was the setting for the marriage of Janine and Skip last month when they exchanged vows in the beautiful front parlor of the hotel in Skip’s hometown of New Orleans.  After dressing in the upstairs suite, Janine descended the central staircase to meet her waiting groom.  Their closest family and friends shrieked with delight as the two entered into the parlor, hand in hand, to strut down the aisle to the strains of When the Saints Come Marching In! After their beautiful and touching vows, in typical New Orleans tradition, the newlyweds lead the entire crew on a second line around the hotel property, then back inside for a wonderful reception.  “We’re just so happy!” they exclaimed to me as we were making their portraits out on the streetcar line just before Skip picked up his bride to swing her around with all the vigor of a teenager.  They didn’t need to tell me that … it was obvious to anyone with eyes.  Love knows no age, love knows no boundaries, all that matters is to love and be loved.  Congratulations again to Janine and Skip who are heading back to their home in Canada!  May you always be as happy as you were on this day and may you always keep a part of New Orleans in your souls.Destination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns HotelDestination Wedding at The Columns Hotel

Marla + Patrick // Married

Weddings do not have to be large to be awesome, as proven by Marla and Patrick when they celebrated their marriage in Jackson Square last month.  They exchanged their vows in the center of the square during a small, intimate ceremony surrounded by their closest family and friends.  The scale of their celebration was juxtaposed against the grandeur of the backdrop, the iconic St. Louis Cathedral.  Reverend Tony Talavera of the French Quarter Wedding Chapel officiated, and as always, performed a most heartfelt and sincere ceremony.  The couple then took off to the Barrel Proof Bar for cake, cocktails and in true New Orleans tradition, a celebratory second line that involved anyone and everyone at the bar!!  By all accounts a great time was had by all!  Congratulations, guys!  Many, many years of love and happiness to you both.
