New Orleans Courtyard Wedding at Hotel Mazarin // Stacy + Jay, Married

Oh 2020, you’ve given us challenges and time and again, we’ve watched love overcome. Weddings have had to reschedule, downsize, move locations and undergo all sorts of other twists, turns and uncertainties this year. But what we’ve learned now that we are on the back end of this year is that if there is a will, there is a way.  Of course, we have also learned that Stacy is the mother to 6 boys, while simultaneously homeschooling and attending law school herself, so we are pretty sure she has a Wonder Woman cape hidden somewhere in her closet, and we knew that if anyone could make a wedding happen in 2020, it would be her! And so she did.  In late November, Stacy and Jay were married in a gorgeous, candle lit ceremony in the courtyard of Hotel Mazarin.  Utilizing the courtyard area for both the wedding and reception, the whole event was able to spread out in a safe, outdoor space, that was both beautiful and romantic.  By all accounts a great time was had by all!  Congratulations again to Stacy and Jay, and wishing you so many years of happiness!

Sunset Barn Wedding at Sarah Bella // Morgan + Colby Married

It was a gorgeous day at The Barn at Sarah Bella, when high school sweethearts and bandmates, Morgan and Colby were married in late November. The groom was looking quite dapper, but as usual, it was the bride that really stole the show here. Morgan kept exclaiming that she felt like she was in a fairy tale and she definitely looked the part!

After getting ready, the couple met for the the sweetest first look ever.  They then proceeded to traipse through the woods for beautiful, sunkissed portraits that definitely had the air of being set in a magical fairy tale!  Morgan and Colby then exchanged vows in a gorgeous sunset ceremony and by all accounts there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.  The celebration continued inside the barn with family and friends sharing love and laughter. The night ended with a sparkler send-off into happily ever after!  Congratulations again, and wishing them many years of magic.

New Orleans Backyard Wedding // Megan + Billy // Married Part II

We met Megan + Billy in early spring of 2020. Their wedding was always going to be small, but was still going to include all the special touches. Megan chose a venue, and we planned a wonderful day that included a ceremony, first look, first dance and cake cutting.  The one thing we didn’t plan on was Corona. As businesses began shutting down and quarantine became reality, plans had to change. Through the pandemic we have learned that you can postpone and cancel a lot of things, but love will always find a way. On a beautiful day in April, we masked up and met Megan + Billy in City Park for a private elopement with just the two of them. See Part I, HERE.

Fast forward 6 months to the most coveted wedding day of 2020, October 10, and the couple were finally able to celebrate with family!  They chose to have it at their home, which is the perfect party venue.  By carefully grouping guests with their own “pods”, the bride and groom created a safe, yet comfortable environment for celebrating together.  The decor was beautiful, but hands down our favorite feature was the “Barchuterie” stations, designed by the bride as a play on the traditional cocktail and hors d’oeuvres hour in order to comply with social distancing requirements and keep their loved ones safe.

It’s been a year where couples have had to shift their perspective and focus on what is most important.  They have had to juggle their dates, and come up with really creative solutions for bringing family and friends together, yet keeping them apart.  Megan did a beautiful job of keeping the decor elegant while still keeping everything distant and safe.  In her own words, “As with most brides, it’s a day that I have dreamed about my entire life. I came up with the low-budget rustic garden party theme (it represents us so well). I did all of the leg work of shopping, etc and then my mom, brother Brandon and best cousin Kim helped me bring it all together.”

The afternoon began with a brief and touching welcome, and then a plated dinner was served. After dinner, dessert was served and the wedding cake was cut.  Finally, Megan and Billy shared their first dance as husband and wife … 6 months late, but who’s counting when you have a lifetime to go?
