From Amanda Price Events: This shoot tells the story of a vivacious, bold couple from the West Coast that fell in love with New Orleans during their many vacations together to the city. The mixture of bright colors, geometric patterns, and mix metals brought life to the space and truly embodied the essence of the Bywater neighborhood.

The roof deck of the venue was used for their intimate ceremony. The multi-colored chairs, combined with the lanterns down the aisle, greenery adorned palette backdrop, and splashes of colored florals created a vibrant space for the couple to say their vows. For the ceremony, the bride flaunted her floral earrings and hoop bouquet, elements that brought a pop of color to the outdoor space.

The tablescape was an important element of design for the bride, groom, and their bridal party. Elements included wood tables, brass candlesticks with black taper candles, geometric lanterns filled with colorful florals, and an asymmetric floral arrangement. The hanging installation included a mixture of an asymmetric floral arrangement, jute chandeliers, and geometric lanterns with black taper candles hanging from the historic wooden beams. The asymmetric design of the installation and tablescape elements complimented each other and the varied geometric elements incorporated into the event.
