New Orleans Wedding, Bourbon Orleans: Olivia and Matthew

French Quarter weddings are always fun, and Olivia and Matthew's was no exception! It was also a heartfelt family affair with so much love, I was on the verge of tears several times.  There is something about weddings and seeing families come together that just touches me and it is truly an honor to be invited to document those incredible moments.  (Like seeing the bride's Aunt, who is very ill, taking part in the congo line!)

Olivia and her mother Tammy put so much thought into the details, it was wonderful to see it all come together with help from Unique Wedding Planners. Michelle and her team were so professional and helpful, even helping me pre "defog" a lens so I'd be ready for the second line at midnight on a steamy June evening.

New Orleans Bridal Session: Olivia

Back in March I had the chance to meet with Olivia and her mother in New Orleans for a bridal session. It was a gorgeous day!  We started at her wedding reception venue, The Bourbon Orleans, stopped at her church, St. Mary's Assumption, and ended in City Park under the beautiful oak trees. Bridal sessions are a southern tradition and usually a portrait of the bride is displayed at the wedding. Olivia's mom chose not one, but two lovely images to display at the wedding. Scroll to the bottom to see what she choose! Olivia and Matthew's wedding is up next!

 

Westchester Wedding: Sleepy Hollow Country Club

Alexandra and Liam's wedding is one of those that I wish I could photograph again, and again! Between the gorgeous day, amazing vendors and venue and a fun loving, sweet couple, what more can you ask for?

There were also many lovely personal details, like the beautiful locket the bridesmaids gave Alexandra with a photo of her parents on their wedding day. Her bouquet was also wrapped with part of her mother's wedding dress. That was a lovely way to incorporate her mother's memory into the wedding day.
