From the bride…We fell in love in New York City. It must have been our destiny to meet each other in a city of more than 8 million people. Five years later he proposed on a sunset walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. That night, he shared his dream that we get married in a small courtyard with twinkling lights. From that moment, we knew New Orleans was the perfect destination. We wanted our wedding to feel timeless, romantic, and sweet. The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum was the first pharmacy in America, and the perfect blend of the old with the new. Its rich history and beautiful courtyard were the ideal backdrop for our intimate wedding. Our florist incorporated soft touches of blush tones, with roses and dahlias, that added a beautiful elegance to the evening. Our wedding cake and delicious treats for the dessert bar were homemade with love by our families. And our mutual love for jazz filled the night—from the second line band, to the Louis Armstrong soundtrack we played throughout the evening. We loved seeing our guests enjoy the wedding together and celebrating our love. We couldn't have dreamt of a better place than NOLA for our special day.
