Cinematography by Mason Jar Films
July 8, 2008

Now that you've had a chance to vote for your favorite color palette, I have some serious eye candy for you. The incredibly talented cinematographer, Jones, over at Mason Jar Films, recently sent me this absolutely gorgeous video clip of a wedding that he shot in New Orleans...

Is that not the most beautiful video you've ever seen? The dress, the veil, the everything. I must admit that I was actually brought to tears by this gorgeous film. Pairing the understated background music with the vintage charm of the 16mm and 8mm film, the end result just seemed so authentically beautiful. Lucky for us, Jones will be posting a series of clips from this incredible wedding on his blog for the next three weeks!

Here are some details of the event from Jones...

Thursday night, Trevor and Cece had a Crawfish at CeCe's brother's house. Family and friends gathered to reacquaint and eat crawfish, shrimp, sausage, corn, and new potatoes along with their favorite beverages. Local brew Abiza was generously served.

Trevor is Scottish, so along with his relatives and the bagpiper, he wore a kilt. To show the joining of two families, the Father of the Bride (Pierre Villere) wore shoes designed with the groom's family crest on the toe.

Before entering into the reception, guests were treated to cocktail hour at the mother of the bride's house (Mimi Bowen) before the Storyville Stompers led the 2nd line into the tent. (The 2nd line is a New Orleans tradition in which guests dance from the ceremony site to the reception site behind a jazz band)

Along with the amazing array of local fare, guests were given a little lagniappe by being treated to freshly rolled cigars from the Cigar Factory of New Orleans and freshly made taffy from local favorite The Roman Candy Man.

The Jimmy Church band played until 2 a.m.


And guess what...the amazingly talented Stephen Karlisch photographed the affair, and has been sweet enough to share these stunning images with us...
