My Wedding {New Orleans}

I am so excited to share the pictures from my wedding! My wonderful husband and I married May 26, 2012 in New Orleans, LA. Our wedding was designed with a vintage, European feel to it and we chose NOLA because of the French influences throughout the city.

Rings on porcelain Tiffany and Co box, floral fabric bouquet, Chloe Ballet shoes for the ceremony, glittered Jimmy Choos for the after-party, J Crew Wedding Gown.

All make-up by MAC, a dear friend attaching “Merci” labels to delicious lemon Cheryl and Co Cookies, custom Love cake topper, vintage suitcase filled with postcards bought throughout Europe for guests to sign in lieu of guestbook.

A moment together (but no peeking)

{Before the ceremony}

Flower girl bubbles, envelopes I made to hold handfuls of rose petals. The intro for the Groom and his boys included a chest bump and Top Gun High-Five. The boys in their pink argyle socks and grey Chuck’s.

{Ceremony time}

It was a sweet, happy ceremony. I worked with the officiant creating vows that encompassed John and I. The songs we walked to were an instrumental Final Countdown (lol) for the boys, Bruno Mars “Marry You” for the flower girls (blowing bubbles) and Maid of Honor and The Band Perry “All Your Life” for my walk. The closing song was the Fratellis “Chelsea Dagger”. I am a major Chicago Blackhawks fan and they play that song to celebrate every goal, so John surprised me with that song (which is why I’m jumping in the air!)

{Little details below}

The colors used throughout the ceremony and receptions were pale pink, champagne and cream. I wore a J Crew wedding gown with Chloe Ballet flats, Anna Rivka head piece, earrings, bracelets and ring for the ceremony (LOVED my hair btw) while my Maid of Honor wore an Infinity dress in pale pink. The Groom and his party did not wear matching suits, because we preferred the eclecticism of the darker shades of suits mixed together and instead had matching ties, socks and Chuck Taylor’s for fun.

We rented the Henry Howard House for the weekend. All our guests stayed at the home with us, where we had our brunch reception and evening dinner and party. We rented a trolley (so fun!) to transport our guests to and from the Peristyle. The wedding brunch included two crepe stations by Crêpes Á La Cart, quiches made by John of the HH House, croissants from France and macarons by Sucre}
