And Those Dresses!
From Arte de Vie: I could not get enough of the flower girls — they were precious! And their dresses! Do they make those in adult sizes? I was in love! I also loved the girls’ enthusiasm while Annie was getting dressed. They wanted to be a part of everything, and they were so curious. They’ll make great bridesmaids someday!
Cool Calm & Collected
What an amazing wedding! Annie and Brad are a pair that did not lack energy that’s for sure! It’s one of the traits that initially drew me to both of them. They are motivated, kind individuals that exude confidence and positivity in the best way possible. On the wedding day they were surrounded by their closest friends and family, which we knew early on was very important for them.
Let's Get Nola Up In Here
Highlights of the day included a cocktail hour before the ceremony (it is Nola after all!), lots and lots of dancing, champagne being poured straight from the bottle into mouths on the dance floor, mercury candle holders turned into awesome drinking chalices
Swan Dive & Sparkler Exit Surprise
Huge inflatable swans were in the pool that the bride and groom later jumped on, wedding gown and all, and a departure for the record books! As Annie and Brad ran through the sparklers, Annie was met with a sparkling brand new Jeep at the end of the tunnel. She stopped, gasped, and turned back to look at Brad, who was beaming that his surprise went so well.
