Elegant Il Mercato Wedding | Erin + Blake

Erin + Blake’s elegant Il Mercato wedding was such a sweet one.  This gorgeous venue in New Orleans does not disappoint.  From it’s easy location to the timeless stucco, to the courtyard area with a fireplace, to a gorgeous indoor space complete with arched details, this venue is a favorite for so many reasons and we love photographing weddings here.

Erin and Blake’s family and friends traveled to New Orleans to celebrate with them and what a beautiful celebration it was.  The two of them shared a sweet private first look in a nearby park before their ceremony and we walked around the block with the two of them for some portraits.  After that, we headed to Il Mercato to meet their family and friends for a few pre-ceremony photos.  A friend officiated their wedding, making it so personal and meaningful.  Their reception venue was adorned with the sweetest little flowers and cumquats, and everyone danced the night away to the most incredible band.  Here are a few of our favorite images from their wedding day.
