Father and Bride Dance at Broussard's Courtyard Wedding

This beautiful black and white photograph of the bride dancing with her father at her Broussard's courtyard wedding reception is particularly special, as he sadly passed away about 4 months later. I take great pride in knowing that this image that captures a precious moment in time will be cherished by this bride forever.

This New York couple had a spectacular wedding in New Orleans that was an absolute joy to photograph, with Brittani Adams-Perret of Unique Weddings in New Orleans expertly coordinating the event, and the always professional crew of Studio Vieux Carré on hand for video.

We started out with coverage of the bride and groom getting ready at Hotel Mazarin, where the couple also shared their emotional first look. After some portraits of the couple around the French Quarter, and the formal group shots back at Hotel Mazarin, we headed to the beautiful Hermann-Grimma House, where the ceremony was to be held. The reception took place at the adjacent world-famous restaurant Broussard's. The fabulous Kinfolk Brass Band showed up for some classic New Orleans entertainment early in the reception, and then returned at the end of the night to lead the big group on an amazing second line parade through the streets of the French Quarter.

While a second line is the perfect way to end any New Orleans wedding, it was particularly suited for this couple. As the bride mentioned during her speech, it was during a prior visit to the city when she saw a bride and groom parading through the streets, and knew right then and there that she wanted to get married here!
