Katharine & Tony’s Elopement in New Orleans

This delightful California couple eloped to New Orleans, with their ceremony taking place at the centuries-old Tree of Life in Audubon Park, and a couple of local friends in attendance. After the emotional ceremony and some portraits in the park, we headed down to the French Quarter, where the Jaywalkers Brass Band awaited to lead the couple on a festive second line parade, ending up at Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop on world-famous Bourbon Street.

The start of the parade also served as their fabulous way of announcing their surprise marriage in New Orleans to the rest of their friends and family across the country, by way of one of their friends livecasting with Katharine’s phone, and the other with Tony’s phone, as the couple counted off the band and began the second line. In true NOLA style, the couple recruited some total strangers along the parade route to join in the celebration and march with them as they made their way through the streets of the French Quarter.
