From Matthew ReeNew Orleans is one of the world’s most interesting cities that offers rich history from Europe, Caribbean, Africa and more. All these melting pot of the culture creates amazing food and music which this couple, Jennifer and Matthew, wanted to have as their wedding backdrop.

While having a party city as their venue, they wanted to just have non-stop parties with full of good foods and dances. Even the random street musician became part of their wedding and random tourists on the street became their wedding guests. That is exactly what the couple wanted, the block party! If you’re looking for a spontaneous festivities, New Orleans is the place to celebrate.

Romantic Downtown New Orleans Boudoir Inspiration

Nothing says utter romance more than ivory Chantilly lace, and this stunning boudoir shoot from Erika Parker Photography has plenty of it! Oh and that ring? Swoon! I’d pass on a diamond for a sapphire stunner like that any day. Ready for more? Lose yourself in all the pretty right here.

From Erika ParkerRace and Religious is a beautiful venue in downtown New Orleans. It has so much old world charm, I thought it would be the perfect place for a boudoir shoot. I collaborated with Lara from La Mintz who helped with the styling details, and the model, as well as with Destiny from Poppy and Mint Floral Company for a bouquet for the day.

We were really lucky, the day we decided to shoot was sunny and warm, and just a few hours after we were done, the temperature dropped into the 30′s! I wanted to take advantage of everything Race and Religious had to offer, the guest rooms inside are cozy, but with lots of character. Outside there is ivy, exposed brick and a pool — it’s beautiful! It was the perfect setting for an elegant boudoir shoot.

Romantic Garden Engagement Session

Take a breathtaking setting like the Rip Van Winkle Gardens and add in one of the most stunning bride and grooms you will ever lay your eyes upon and the results are pure, unadulterated magic.  Think one romantic moment after another set against lush landscapes and towering trees.  Sigh.  See every beautiful second captured by Catherine Guidry in the full gallery

From Catherine GuidryRip Van Winkle Gardens are filled with lush oaks, hanging moss, unique gardens and a gorgeous plantation. The landscape is ever-changing there, making it the perfect spot for Alexis and Jarret’s engagement.

I love that they took this opportunity to dress for the occasion – Alexis in a short blush ruffled dress and Jarret in light neutrals and wingtips for their first outfit. After their outfit change, Alexis wore a flowing ivory gown. They are such a sweet couple that truly play off of each other’s personality.

It was a beautiful day for a lovely couple!

From the beautiful Bride… Since the venue already has so much old world charm and many eclectic treasures I didn’t want to takeaway from it’s natural beauty, but I also didn’t want to blend in by using anything rustic. In general, I’ve always loved the juxtaposition of old and new so this was what I was trying to create. A clean, modern look that was set in a weathered, antique space.

For the flower colors I was inspired by the bougainvilleas growing on the property. Growing up in Florida my mother and grandmother always grew these in a variety of colors and they are naturally just amazing.

Of all the decisions I struggled with the bridesmaids dresses the most and I think they turned out as one the best. I wanted them to feel great and reflect (literally) FUN, which is what we feel about NOLA. I tried on a million dresses for each of them, sent them pictures and they got to pick their favorite. This one was the clear winner!

My other favorite part (from a design perspective) was the linens and candles. Both of those vendors were so great to work with and the chandelier was awesome and achieved exactly what I wanted of old and new. I wish I could have enjoyed it more that night
