Genny and Barr’s all white wedding highlights everything that New Orleans weddings are known for! The only color- Genny wore a mint colored Monique Lhuillier gown! They were married in the golden glamour of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church and celebrated at their seated dinner reception at the iconic Waldorf Astoria Roosevelt Hotel in the French Quarter! The reception featured lush, glamorous floral clouds dripping with orchids! The tables featured golden accents and lots of flickering candlelight! We offered the guests a few unique lounges for comfortable seating and easy conversation! The showstopper- a sugar flower adorned cake positioned in front of a full wall of white flowers that was flanked by candles! A backdrop for many a selfie that night! As we neared the end of the night, the group enjoyed sliders and fries for their late night snack while we served New Orleans style snowballs as a sweet treat! To cap off the night, reception ended with a traditional second line out to their horse and carriage!
This wedding was my favorite example of making a traditional, ballroom wedding feel modern and intricately interesting!

When pretty weddings are featured on blogs, I get very happy! But when pretty weddings are featured in magazines, I do a happy dance! This season’s issue of Southern Bride just came out with a three page spread of Ashley and Michael’s Roosevelt Hotel wedding! This glamorous and classic affair offered ample soft seating, mirrors galore, lush draping florals, and as many details as you can fit in one wedding!! One of my favorite elegant soirees that proves that weddings don’t have to be kitschy to get noticed!
Congrats to the happy couple for all of the love that their love has received from the press! You two deserve it all!
