When Amanda asked if I would help with her New Orleans wedding, I jumped at the chance to do a destination wedding! Amanda and Ryan, both from Louisiana, went home to say “I do!” Planning the wedding from out of state should have been hard but with the support of family and friends it all came together nicely.
The party started with balcony rooms at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel. You should have seen the banner hanging from Amanda’s room announcing the nuptials! The ceremony was in Jackson Square. This public park in front of the St. Louis Cathedral set the scene for a beautiful NOLA wedding. The colors were egg plant, ivory, and silver. Amanda used peacock feathers as accents in color and design. The reception was at the Federal Ballroom. This space was transformed with silver satin linens, rich purple flowers, and spot lights on the columns.
When first meeting with Amanda she said, “this is a New Orleans Wedding. We have to have good food, good music and good booze!” All that came together for the perfect party! From the photo booth to the big band, guests were having a ball!
I know you would rather see pics than read what I have to say about this amazing wedding. This truly was an experience I will never forget! Thank you Amanda for including me in your special day.
