New Orleans is a city with a soul and it is the perfect place to celebrate. With 20 of their closest friends and family, Kelly and Michael traveled from Texas to join their lives under beautiful moss covered live oaks in City Park.
Despite it being October, it was a hot day and the sun shone the trees. The ceremony was beautiful and the atmosphere was joyous. A party bus took everyone from City Park to Jackson Square in the French Quarter. From there, the group enjoyed a high energy second line. This is probably one of my favorite New Orleans traditions! People on the street celebrate and dance along and sometimes even joined in for a few blocks! The group dined and celebrated at a beautiful restaurant, Antoine's, in the French Quarter. The food was delicious and the room was beautiful. The group enjoyed a lovely dinner party and then went out on the town and celebrated some more.
I love photographing elopements and intimate weddings, even more so in New Orleans. I'm looking forward to splitting my time between Austin and Nola, capturing people's love stories in my two favorite places on Earth.
