When my husband Ryan and I eloped to Audubon Park in NOLA in June of 2019, my daughter is Rebecca was included in our wedding party — and even in our vows! Here’s the blended family vows wording we used in our ceremony
We’re from California, so having the wedding in New Orleans was a destination for us and all of our guests. We wanted everything to be classic New Orleans… With some Star Wars and LEGO tossed in!
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.
April and Kyle’s wedding was the first ever ceremony and reception to take place at the Music Box Village. The Music Box Village space is an open-aired arrangement of unique pieces of musical architecture — shacks and structures designed to make a variety of sounds — accompanied by the performers’ instruments and women dancers from Dancing Grounds and is completely outdoors.
This wedding was not only held at one of the most beautiful venues in the south, Race & Religious, but also celebrated elements of the couple’s global philanthropic efforts. Anna and William are globetrotting humanitarians. They’ve spent their lives helping others and fell in love where they currently live in Senegal, West Africa. Their wedding was focused around all the moments they shared with one another and their guests who flew in from all over the world to celebrate with them.
The inspiration for Amanda and Terry’s New Orleans wedding was the city itself. We’re talking jewel tones, candles, and dramatic décor. Amanda wanted the theme of the day to be “more is more,” (maximalism FTW!) which carried through from the food to the table settings, all the way to her wedding gown. One of our favorite details is their floating cake table that held their peacock cake(!).
Just wait until you see when Amanda took the stage with the band to belt a few tunes!
