With Mardi Gras just behind us, I can’t hep but think of one of my favorite cities in the world, New Orleans! I love New Orleans, always have and since Dan decided that was the place to propose, I love it even more! New Orleans has such a unique, authentic, lively culture that is all about partying and having a great time! “Laissez les bons temps rouler” is a creole french saying, meaning “Let the Good Times Roll”, and this is the motto of NOLA!
A must of any NOLA wedding is a parade featuring a brass band or “second line!”
With the stunning backdrop of the French Quarter, you can get some amazing shots of your dress.
The courtyards tucked away behind many old mansions in the Quarter are a surreal place to host your ceremony.
This photo was taken from almost the exact spot that Dan got down on one knee!
You can host your reception at the Hotel Montelone and possibly have your cocktail hour at the Carousel Bar, which actually spins (slowly) as if you were on a carousel!
A wedding in the Big Easy wouldn’t be complete without beignets from Cafe Du Monde! (This was taken on our last trip there.)
