Cailin and Brett have had plenty of travels and adventures around the world. Seeing how much they love food, music, and revelry, the decision to have their wedding in New Orleans was a no-brainer. Their stunning New Orleans wedding really expressed their personalities by steering away from traditions which didn't fit them, and creating a wedding that expressed who they are from the rustic, classic New Orleans style venue, organic flowers fresh from the florist's garden, to the French 75 and Sazerac bar, which were served from absinthe dispensers.

A foliage installation served as both ceremony backdrop and table chandelier. A jazz band and tarot card reader provided entertainment for the guests. Wooden tables with bamboo chairs were topped with loose branches and flowers. A floral printed settee to match the colors of the bouquets was placed by the pool for lounging and cute guest photo ops. A buffet of Cajun and Creole style dishes were displayed in cast iron, copper, and wooden vessels atop a dinning room table. A personal size Chantilly cake accompanied adorable petit fours for dessert.
