Ross and Ellen came all the way from London to have a French Quarter New Orleans wedding.
Ellen got ready with her bridesmaids and a few close family members. Her friends helped carry her dress and we could see the steeple of the historic St. Louis Cathedral as we walked over for their “I do’s. She walked into the cathedral and right down the aisle to marry Ross, who got ready in a nearby air bnb himself. Their cathedral ceremony was a short and sweet one filled with a laughs, a few tears, and lots of love.
After walking back down the aisle as husband and wife, they walked out of the church and through confetti thrown by their family and friends. Kinfolk Brass Band was waiting outside the church to lead a second line to their reception at Broussard’s. It was a lot of their guests first time in New Orleans, and it was so much fun watching them experience a second line for the first time. It was a bright and sunny day making all fo the colors of the French Quarter even more vibrant.
Broussard’s was adorned with gold accents and white flowers by Bella Blooms, and the courtyard was the perfect place for everyone to gather and celebrate the two newlyweds. Kinfolk played through cocktail hour, then it was time for the speeches. We always learn so much more about couples during the speeches and these were heartfelt, funny, and showed how much love the two were surrounded by. We photographed it all, along with Ross and Ellen’s flower girl and ring bearer who were given disposable cameras and proved to be determined photographers themselves. DJ Aaron Lane kept the dance floor going that evening. It was a beautiful, fun night.
Special thanks to their wonderful planner Leslie Campbell Weddings who helped put all of this together, rentals by Southern Hospitality Event Rental, decor by Firefly Ambience and Cake by Bittersweet Confectionery.
