This New York couple’s amazing wedding day, expertly coordinated by Sue of Beth’s Flowers and filmed by Bella Productions, started out with some getting ready shots with Up-Sa Daisy taking care of hair and makeup, and a first look at the Ace Hotel in downtown New Orleans. We then headed over to St. Louis Cathedral for the ceremony, first doing our formal group photographs in Jackson Square.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, the Brian Murray Brass Band led the group on a fabulous second line parade through the French Quarter, with a brief stop for a quick photo at Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop, where Joe had proposed to Stacey. While second line parades after the ceremony usually lead to the reception, in this case we headed down Bourbon Street until we reached Esplanade Avenue, where buses were waiting to transport everyone to Tomas Bistro in the downtown area, where the reception was to be held in the amazing looking Gallery Room, which was beautifully decorated by Beth’s Flowers. DJ Mobile Beats handled the entertainment, and Gambino’s provided, instead of a traditional wedding cake, a gorgeous display of cupcakes.
The memorable night was capped off by a fabulous Greek tradition where the groom does a special dance, and guests toss money at him!
