Third Time’s a Charm at Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights Museum // Stephanie + Nick, Married

The first time Stephanie and Nick tried to get married, their wedding was postponed just days before it was to take place, due to Covid. It was rescheduled for the following year. The second time Stephanie and Nick tried to get married, there was still no dancing allowed at weddings, and they decided to postpone once again. The THIRD time Stephanie and Nick tried to get married, well, truth be told, they were already married by this time, and had their beautiful baby girl in attendance with them at the fabulously fun, high energy dance party that took place at Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights Museum. Emotions were high and a lot of sighs of relief were breathed as the couple finally got to celebrate their marriage.

The wedding party got ready at the historic Hotel Monteleone, then the couple met for their first look in Exchange Alley.   Many thanks to the kind folks at the Michalopoulos Gallery who helped us to hide Stephanie away until we could get Nick in place! After the first look, the family joined for formal portraits, and then the real fun began as the entire party took a circuitous second line route around the French Quarter from the Monteleone to the Bevelo Museum. Even sweet baby Nora joined in for baby’s first second line!

When the wedding ceremony began, since Stephanie and Nick were already married, they opted for a handfasting ceremony rather than a ring exchange.  It was truly beautiful and touching. And once the knot was officially tied, the dance party they had waited so long for officially began. Congratulations to the new Pressler family … we know that this will be an everlasting love!

Intimate New Orleans Courtyard Wedding // Lindsay + Rocky Married

Some things in life are worth waiting for … like 8 years of waiting through a lot of ups and downs. Lindsay and Rocky told us their relationship had endured long distance, lost jobs, COVID postponements and the like, but when they finally saw each other on their wedding day, it was obvious that all of those obstacles melted away.  Their joy was uncontainable, and honestly, one of the sweetest first looks we’ve ever seen.  The love between these two is undeniable and it showed all over Lindsey’s face through her wrinkled nose smile!  We thoroughly enjoyed photographing the wedding, and then taking these two on a fun adventure exploring the the French Quarter. They spread their contagious joy everywhere we went! We finally said our goodbyes and sent them on their Just Married way, to go meet friends and family for dinner!  Congratulations again Lindsay and Rocky and wishing you all the joy and happiness in the world!

A True New Orleans Celebration at Margaret Place // Kristina + David, Married

When David showed up to install a new phone system into the high school where Kristina was working, he had no idea he was about to meet his future wife. I write that so casually, but in reality, it wasn’t exactly that easy. The first time David asked Kristina out, she stood him up! Thank goodness the story doesn’t end there and they made amends.  They tried it once again and as Kristina put it, the rest is history! Fast forward to last month, on a beautiful sunny day in New Orleans, David and Kristina made plans to get married at Margaret Place. Not only did she not stand him up, she showed up in a BIG way! Kristina was quite stunning as she stepped out in her gorgeous gown by Rish Bridal.  Be sure and check out those first look photos and notice how David can barely contain himself!  The night was filled with lots of love and toasts, and dinner and dancing. The guests were treated to two separate brass bands, and a DJ that kept the dance floor moving.  When the night was over, the couple made their getaway in the fanciest Rolls Royce we’ve ever seen!  Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Comeaux.  We wish you so many years of love and happiness!

Fabulous, Fun Wedding Reception at House of Broel

Every once in a lifetime, you meet a really special person and you know you want to spend the rest of your life with them. Also, every once in a lifetime, a really cool date happens, like 12.02.2021 (there are actually only 38 palindrome dates in the 21st century!).  When special people get married on special dates, it’s just kind of magical!  And so begins the wedding story of Stephanie and Mona, who were married atop Rockefeller Center in New York on 12.02.2021 with their closest family in attendance.  By all accounts it was a really fun and magical celebration!  But they waited until March 2022, to celebrate their reception at House of Broel with all of their family AND closest friends, as well!

The evening began with a champagne toast to all in attendance, and then the couple lead the group inside. With more toasts, drinks and dancing on the agenda, the evening was truly a fabulous, fun celebration! Congratulations to the Beaughs!  Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!
