Sharon + James // Married

February is the month where we celebrate love and with all that romance in the air, it seems like the perfect time to get married!! At least that’s what Sharon + James were feeling when they headed to New Orleans for their elopement with six of their best friends in tow! The “Elopement 8” is what they called themselves, dispelling any hard, fast preconceived notions that an elopement has to be just the two of you! You’ve probably read it here on our blog before, or at least you’ve heard it on the Internet … when it comes to your wedding, there are no rules anymore! It’s your day and you should do it your way … like in a park, on a bridge, wearing red converse with your six besties cheering you on!! Because at the end of the day, it really is all about the two of you joining your lives, and the love you share.

We met Sharon + James in the sculpture garden at City Park just before their wedding for a quick photo session. We probably could have kept them in the garden for hours, it is so beautiful in there and the newer section provides so many great opportunities for portraits! We met the officiant at the Langles Bridge just as the sun was beginning to set and she performed the wedding ceremony while Sharon + James’ friends gathered round for support and cheers!  We continued photographing the Elopement 8 until we lost light and then the most magical full moon rose over the horizon.  I’ve read it’s good luck to get married on the day of a full moon, and if the size of the moon is any indicator, Sharon + James should be blessed with bountiful luck and abundant love!

Bonnie + Robert // Married

Five years to the day of their first date, Bonnie and Robert were married in New Orleans in an intimate ceremony at Melrose Mansion, attended by their closest family and friends. A fun fact that Bonnie told us was that on that first date she was wearing pajamas since the company they both worked for was having a Christmas morning themed day! Five years later, Bonnie descended the staircase at Melrose Mansion in the furthest thing from PJ’s, a gorgeous gray dress and killer heels, and approached Robert for a first look with all the excitement one might expect on Christmas morning! It was truly magical! They were then married with a quick, joy-filled ceremony by Judge Kern Reese. After a champagne toast to the newlyweds, the entire party headed off to the French Quarter for a celebration dinner at Tableau. Wishing you all the happiness and Christmas morning-like joy for many years to come!

EmilyJo + Jonathan // Married

Being able to document a wedding for any bride is truly an honor; being invited back to document another wedding in the same family is probably about one of the highest compliments we could ever receive. We were absolutely delighted when EmilyJo contacted us to capture her and Jonathan’s beautiful December wedding, after having shot a wedding for her cousin a few years ago! Just like her cousin, EmilyJo and Jonathan were married at White Dove Fellowship, which is so special to them.  Not only is it the place where they met, but the pastor happens to be EmilyJo’s grandfather!  He performed the beautiful and touching ceremony for them, where it was abundantly clear that God’s love and the love of their families was present.  The whole wedding party then moved over to the fellowship hall to celebrate with the newly married couple.  We had a blast traipsing the foggy night with them for a quick night time session, and we finished up just in time for a bubble send off!  Congratulations EmilyJo and Jonathan!!  We wish you guys many, many years of love and happiness.
