The Capital on Baronne is a spectacularly elegant wedding venue in downtown New Orleans. Formerly the opulent lobby of FirstNBC bank, it now serves as a great place for even the largest wedding receptions. It's only a half block away from Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, a very popular church for couples to get married in, and is also within Second Line distance from St. Patrick's. Of course, the venue itself can also host wedding ceremonies.
This Baton Rouge couple's amazing wedding day, coordinated by Unique Weddings in New Orleans, started out with a first look at the nearby Roosevelt Hotel, which enabled us to get some portraits of the couple at the reception venue, The Capital on Baronne, before the ceremony, as well as all the formal group shots. We then headed over to Immaculate Conception Church for the ceremony.
After the ceremony, the couple was given a big congratulatory send-off as they exited the church and headed back to The Capital for the reception. There, thanks to perfectly planned timing, we had 15 minutes of fabulous light to work with for some additional portraits of the couple on the rooftop.
Then the party commenced with The Mixed Nuts providing the entertainment, and everyone had a great time!
At the end of the night, the Kinfolk Brass Band showed up and wrapped up the fabulous event with a second line back to The Roosevelt.
