Laura and Andrew’s ceremony took place at the historic St. Louis Cathedral, but before that we did an emotional first look and mini portrait session in Jackson Square. Jackson Square was a challenging location to do a first look, since with all the walkways there’s a distinct possibility that an unknowing pedestrian could wander through at just the wrong time. But Andrew’s groomsmen were on top of it, fanning out like a Secret Service detail, guarding the perimeter for us.
The ceremony was great… Father Bedemoore Udechukwu even performed a song he had written for the couple!
After the ceremony, we walked across the street to Pat O’s on the River in Jax Brewery for the reception, where first the Joe Simon Trio performed, then later the legendary Topcats. At the end of the night, the Kinfolk Brass Band (who were just plain amazing) showed up to lead everyone out of the reception and through the French Quarter to cap off this wonderful evening.
