Luxury wedding planner + designer based in New Orleans. Personalizing traditional, yet custom + timeless, yet modern weddings. Named Martha Stewart’s Top Planner 2014
Take a stylish couple from California and plan their special day on the grounds of an iconic New Orleans plantation, what do you get? The epitome of rustic chic!
When we started designing Rachael and Daniel’s wedding, we were so excited about the personal details and the southern charm of Destrehan Plantation! Rachael walked to her soon-to-be husband down a candlelit aisle and they said “I do” (emotionally romantic to the max) under the canopy of a spanish moss covered live oak – what could be more picture perfect…?!
After becoming Mr. & Mrs., guests followed the winding path to the reception that kicked off in the plantation’s restored barn. Festoon lighting and paper lanterns, burlap and lace table runners, and low, lush florals are just a few of the details that turned up the beauty of the space.
As for the personal touches, we were “awww”-ing over their state-shaped cookie display with the most adorable little signs. “California – our meeting spot. Oklahoma – connects our dots. Louisiana – we tied the knot.”
