Audubon Park Elopement | Rae & Christian, New Orleans

Rae and Christian eloped at the Historic Park View Guest House surrounded by their closest friends and family.

 
 

After a bit of furniture rearranging, the Park View Guest House's first-floor parlor made for a beautiful, intimate backdrop for their short elopement ceremony. Beautifully written vows left the entire room looking for tissues. Once their ceremony was finished, the group posed for a couple quick, fun group photos and then I took the couple for a short walk near Audubon Park for a portrait session. The high July humidity didn't affect them one bit! Enjoy their images below, and leave some love in the comments for the couple!  

Audubon Tree of Life Wedding

This wedding was nothing short of incredible. It was planned and designed by the amazingly efficient and organized team at Elyse Jennings Weddings (planning) and pulled off by the great team of New Orleans wedding vendors they assembled.

There were many well thought out details and personal touches throughout this wedding day. A few of my favorites were the gorgeous wooden pews set up under the Audubon Tree of Life during their ceremony, the Phish (band) bobble heads setup on their king cake, and the most awesome gender reveal during the cake cutting.
Scroll down for the images of that.
Like for real.
The black and white reaction shot is one of my most favorite wedding candids I've ever captured.

The Chicory New Orleans Wedding | Good food + Good people = Great time

When you combine good food with good people at your wedding, you end up having a killer party.

Carly and Adriano threw quite the party. As soon as I walked into bridal prep I knew I was in for a fun wedding day. Snoop Dog jams playing on the iPhone, bridesmaids laughing it up, if anyone was nervous - it sure wasn't apparent in the bride's suite!
Their day continued on without a snag. The bride and groom's ceremony aisle was beautifully lit by candle light and backlit by the day's sunset.
We followed up their ceremony with a killer sunset, rooftop couple's session. Then quickly head back downstairs for an incredible seafood spread and dancing. 
They ended their night with a second line from none other than Kinfolk Brass Band leading down the stairs and onto Fulton Street.

Stella Plantation Wedding | Kat & Frank's outdoor plantation wedding

What an incredible day! 
Kat & Frank's wedding day was beautiful. It was a cool, cloudy November afternoon under the oaks at Stella Plantation.

Kat & Frank opted to do a first look on their wedding day. It was a great decision. We were able to stage their first look in the shade under the oaks. They provided a beautiful backdrop for their couple's portraits. From their first look we photographed their wedding party and family photos before their ceremony allowing for the bride and groom to get straight to their reception after ceremony.

French Quarter Wedding Second line | A must do for your destination wedding

What a fun way to celebrate your wedding ceremony!

What a fun way to celebrate your wedding ceremony!
Have your very own parade through the streets of the French Quarter while people look on from their balconies and party right along with you.
They're kind of a 'must do' for any French Quarter wedding. It's a great way to travel from your ceremony location to your reception. - Or if your ceremony location IS your reception location and they need a few moments to reset the space, a second line around the block is the perfect way to spend that time!

Check out these tips for planning your French Quarter second line here.
Be sure to give Kinfolk Brass band a holler when selecting your band!
