Glamorous New Orleans French Quarter Wedding

When you marry the fashionable NYC with New Orleans Big Easy, the results are without a glamorous. Case in point? This impeccable black tie affair snapped by Jacqueline Dallimore that is bursting with beauty. Graced with dramatic Kim Starr Wise florals, gorgeous Melissa’s Fine Pastries, and the mastery work of Laura Hooper Calligraphy it’s a gallery that you won’t want to miss!

From the Sapphire EventsNYC high fashion meets the Big Easy’s entertaining hospitality in this elegant affair! With Lauren’s impeccable sense of style and incredible taste paired with Robert’s charming Southern disposition, this recipe made for an incredible weekend of events to rival any royal wedding. Lauren donned an amazing Amsale gown and incredible cathedral length veil, and dressed her maids in Monique Lhuillier dresses for this black tie event at the French Quarter’s Old Ursuline Convent. A floral fountain created by Kim Starr Wise served as a stunning focal piece that escorted guests to their seats, and after dinner guests danced the night away under the twinkling lights of the decadently decorated tent. Moscow mules in copper mugs served as the signature cocktail as guests arrived at the reception.

From the beautiful Bride… So exciting! I’d say that our vision for the wedding design was for it to be classic and elegant. Florals were important in adding some dramatic touches (the runner and fountain) but other than that just a neutral palate with lots of candles making the tent glow was the goal. For the weekend as a whole our main objective was to bring our big families together and celebrate. We wanted this to be a family affair and we thought NOLA worked perfectly for that- gathering Robert’s family where a lot of them are from and introducing my family to the city. We also added some elements to make my family feel more at home- the Stromboli and cannoli cake! Another special element was being able to use some of the Crosby’s heirlooms (my bracelet and the cake table cloth).

Plantation

From Glass Jar Photography… A gorgeous New Orleans wedding under a massive tree in an alley of old Oaks.

The day was covered in beautiful green tones, with loads of details from “Team Barry” pins for the groomsmen to vintage furniture, to a lush tablescape, to the dress.

The ceremony was held near sunset under the branches of an ageless tree, and the reception ended with fireworks and a full Zydeco style band party.

From Sarah Beth PhotographyTaken at a one on one workshop with Marissa Lambert Photography, and with all of the amazing vendors in this shoot, it was destined to be amazing! We decided to stick with modern, clean and crisp inspirations for this shoot. When choosing a venue, Melrose Mansion was first on the list due to their elegant structure, along with their white walls and huge windows that let in so much natural light! Since we were going to be surrounded by so much white and light colors, we chose to add some color to the flowers to balance it all out.

Our models couldn’t have been a better fit either. Our ‘bride’ Erin Edmiston was actually Mrs. Louisiana. While our male model creates custom mens suites! Although the two only met on the day of the shoot, you wouldn’t be able to tell in the photos.

The stationery set by Heather Grimm may have been one of my favorite aspects about the shoot. The envelopes were black felt that gave an extra luxurious feeling to the set.

City

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.
