Luxury wedding planner + designer based in New Orleans. Personalizing traditional, yet custom + timeless, yet modern weddings. Named Martha Stewart’s Top Planner 2014
A timeless wedding full of high fashion!
Krewe du Loupe was that wedding you’ll look back on in 20 years and still love every single detail! The one where the lace wedding dress breaks the internet! The one fit for a royal couple, but with the most down to earth, genuine and in love bride and groom. It was sheer perfection, oozing fashion and dripping in florals and candles!
Scroll down to see and be prepared to bookmark, pin photos, and get inspired!
Obsessed with this watercolor of the reception venue that both got the guests excited and became a treasured keepsake for the couple!
And talk about a warm welcome to the hotel for the guests- just in time to for the Mardi Gras season, too!
These Marchesa bridesmaids dresses added texture and whimsy, which perfectly mimicked the loose florals of the reception. Traditional meets garden style is our favorite style!
Olivia’s family is blessed with like 2,624 adorable cousins, nieces and nephews! All of which stood in the wedding as junior bridesmaids, junior groomsmen, ring bearers and flower girls! They added so much energy and excitement to the day, and many precious photo ops!
This window in the Windsor Court Presidential Suite is what wedding dressing dreams are made of!
I just love St. Mary’s Italian Church and how you get the grandeur and architecture of a giant church, but the intimacy and coziness for 300 guests!
I always design for the guest experience. For the WOW factor. To set your wedding apart from all other weddings.
Everyone else passes champagne on arrival, well let’s add cotton candy!
Everyone sees this walkway tent just as a rain protector, let’s add a lush canopy of greens, vintage chandeliers, and a whole floral arch. Impress them from the jump and give them an area to take a thousand pictures in!
The reception tent at Ursuline Convent offers a blank canvas where every wedding can make the space their own. This adjective that we used to build the design was polished and formal, whimsical and romantic, loose but structured. I’d say our team nailed it!
These oatmeal colored velvet linens offered a neutral color with a wintery feel!
I see your hedge walls and raise them with twinkle lights!
My new favorite Photo Booth backdrop!
The wedding ended with a bang like only New Orleanians know how!
