This couple is dipping for joy all over New Orleans and to be honest, we can’t blame them. They were married in a super duper romantic ceremony in the hustle and bustle of downtown NOLA, in a break in the downpour – and it was stunning. The soiree was captured by the bride’s friend Carla Ten Eyck in a way only Carla could do. They day, which can be found in it’s entirety in the full image gallery, has got us practicing our dips all over the SMP offices!
Marrying Rob in New Orleans was a dream come true. After seven years together and him proposing in New Orleans it was only natural for us to get married only blocks away from the proposal.
Our wedding was on the corner of the famous Royal Street and Pirates Alley. Royal street is lined with art galleries and musicians. We really wanted our wedding to be something special and not ordinary, especially since I am a wedding photographer also. The idea of getting married in the middle of the street at that corner was something that to my knowledge had never been done. So of course we had to do it and with the help of Danielle from NOLA Bash it was pulled off!
The day of our wedding it poured! I mean poured, but I was determined to get married on that street corner rain or shine! Minutes before the ceremony it stopped just long enough for us to have the ceremony and our traditional second line band parade. One of the best moments for me was walking down Royal Street with strangers watching and cheering. Rob and I looked at each other and both said at the same time… only in new orleans … only here. It was then we both realized that after 7 years we were husband and wife.
