If there were an encyclopedia entry for the term “good people”, this couple’s picture would be right next to it! Keisha and Steve were so delightful to work with during their engagement portrait a few months ago, and this was the case for their wedding as well. The bride, a talented vocalist in the Air Force, filled her hotel room with joyful singing as she was getting ready. The couple shared a beautiful first look in the back courtyard of the Maison Dupuy, followed by their ceremony in the main courtyard, which was officiated by Rev. John Zimmer. The bride’s unwaveringly positive attitude was particularly evident immediately following the ceremony when a moderate rain shower started just as their planned second line parade was beginning. Despite the fact that it was quite literally “raining on her parade”, there was absolutely no indication of any disappointment on her face at all as they danced through the streets with the Kinfolk Brass Band, and all of us had a great time! The band could have very easily said, “sorry, it’s raining, so we’ll just have to play inside instead”, but they clearly share the same dedicated work ethic that I do when it comes to weddings… getting a little wet is a small price to pay for helping to make our couple’s wedding day as memorable an experience as possible. Meanwhile, Steve, a trombonist now retired from the Air Force, set the bar quite high for second lines by bringing his horn along, and jamming with Kinfolk during the parade. The weather cleared up shortly thereafter, and after dinner we were able to proceed with the reception as planned in the courtyard, with Stage 1 Entertainment handing the DJ duties. It was a wonderful evening!
