At the end of their wedding at The Chicory, this couple was given a send-off with ribbon wands. Some venues are averse to sparklers, due to the risk of fire or injury, and these kinds of streamer sticks make for a great alternative (as do bubbles).
I had photographed this bride's sister's wedding a few years prior, and it was wonderful to be able to work with this family once again. I've had numerous instances over the years of being invited back to capture the weddings of siblings of past brides and grooms, and I see this as the most cherished endorsement I could possibly receive.
The couple started out with a first look and some portraits at the Royal Sonesta, in a quiet and secluded courtyard on the second floor of the hotel, providing a good amount of privacy for them, which is usually preferred.
Then we headed over to The Chicory for the ceremony, officiated by Rev. John Zimmer.
The Chicory is a fabulous event venue located in the Warehouse District of New Orleans, and it features several spaces for a ceremony, such as this room on the ground floor, a few different rooms on the second floor, and even a rooftop option.
The main reception space is always a joy to photograph weddings in.
