Sarah and Michael met at the chef's table of a romantic Italian restaurant. They share a love of travel, trying local foods and delicacies, and exploring new places. Their wedding day was not only one they had dreamed of, but it also served as a sort of going away party before they moved from Washington, D.C. to Brussels, Belgium! Sarah had always wanted to move abroad, and when the opportunity came, she and Micheal decided to sell everything they owned and embark on a new chapter that was kicked-off with their unforgettable wedding day.

Sarah and Michael threw an unforgettable New Orleans wedding that was as much about their love as it was the guest experience. Alexis Nelson, planner and designer with Uncommon Camellia, developed a custom design that took excellent care of the guests while incorporating the couple's timeless style. Guests enjoyed private transportation (via Royal Coach) into the French Quarter for the ceremony at St. Louis Cathedral. Afterward, Sarah and Michael led guests in a second-line parade with the well-known Kinfolk Brass Band. The parade ended at The Ritz Carlton New Orleans for cocktails and a seated dinner.
At the reception, the head table centerpieces from Duia & Jean towered over guests allowing easy conversation beneath them. Candlelight, courtesy of Luminous, set the mood along with a gorgeous gold chair brought in from Royal Luxury Events in Houston. After cutting the cake, D Play Band got everyone on the all-white vinyl dance floor from Ad Event Group for the kick-your-shoes-off dance party that everyone's come to expect in NOLA! The event was the perfect mix of luxury and ease through lush florals, candlelight, and custom touches that prioritized a streamlined, comfortable experience for all of the guests.
