Married Couple on Top of The Cabildo

A beautiful early evening sky served as the backdrop for portraits of this couple after their wedding ceremony at The Cabildo in the French Quarter. One of the benefits of being married at the Cabildo is that you usually have the option of being brought up to this top portion of the building for some photographs. It's a bit tight up there, but the views are unforgettable!

The upper floor of the building (and this cupola) suffered severe damage in a fire back in the late 1980s, inadvertently caused by a workman using a torch, prompting brave museum workers and volunteers to frantically try to save as many priceless historic artifacts as they could. The damaged portions were rebuilt, and the museum reopened about 5-6 years later.

Location: 701 Chartres St New Orleans, LA 70130.
