Tascha & Patch | An EPIC New Orleans Wedding!

You guys. This New Orleans wedding celebration was insanely epic. Tascha and Patch went to college in New Orleans and wanted to bring all of their friends and family from their hometown of Miami to The Big Easy to celebrate with them, and boy did they celebrate. We have never been to a wedding where all of the guests were looking so fine (all of the men wore white tuxedo jackets!). And these fine looking guests partied all night! We had such a wonderful time with Tascha, Patch, and all of the amazing vendors they hired to make their dream wedding a reality.

Ellen & Josh | The sweetest couple have a destination wedding in New Orleans!

Ellen is from New Orleans. Josh is from New York. They met and live in New York but wanted to celebrate their nuptials in New Orleans.

Before the wedding we did something a little different with them. We met up with them before the wedding day and did an interview about their love story. It gave us an opportunity to know them in such a more intimate way which in turn gave us a much deeper insight on how to best tell their wedding day story on film. We are so happy with how this turned out. When we re-watch their film we find ourselves laughing one minute and crying the next. That was basically the gist of their New Orleans wedding day. So many laughs and so many tears.

Olivia & Zachary | New Orleans Wedding at Old Ursuline Convent

Last May we received an email from Olivia telling us her and her twin sister, Mackenzie, would soon be getting married to their best friends. We thought this was absolutely incredible. Twins who were best friends also marrying their best friends!

When they booked us to film both weddings we were over the moon excited. It just meant we could hang out with them and their kind families for multiple days!

Olivia and Zachary were just the sweetest. They’re high school sweethearts who had their dream wedding in New Orleans on a perfect day.

Mackenzie & JP | LSU Sweethearts' Wedding at the Southern Hotel

We knew JP had a heart of gold when we heard the speech he gave at the rehearsal dinner at The Southern Hotel thanking his parents and Mackenzie’s parents for everything they’ve done for them throughout the years. I won’t spoil anything, but let’s just say it’s a good one!

We also filmed Mackenzie’s twin sister’s wedding a few months after Mackenzie and JP’s wedding in Covington.

Ellie & Alexander | High School Sweethearts Have a Beautiful New Orleans Wedding

Ellie and Alexander have hearts of gold. They went above and beyond to make sure all of their family, friends, and wedding vendors were comfortable and having a good time throughout their New Orleans wedding weekend. That says a lot about the kind of people they are.

These two met in high school in Florida and came back to Ellie’s hometown to get married.

Alexander’s grandfather wasn’t able to give an actual speech at the rehearsal dinner, but he recorded one and it is movie trailer quality!

Emily & John | New Orleans Wedding Film

Emily and John were the most beautiful (inside and out!) couple. They were both so kind, laid back, and stylish. The details and design of their wedding were so breathtakingly amazing that you have to see it to believe it!

Alanna + Blake | New Orleans Wedding film

This wedding was extra special. Blake and Alanna are some of our very favorite people and they happened to get married in one of our very favorite cities. Alee was actually a bridesmaid (and light holder during the reception!), and the night ended in the most perfect way: a second line through the streets of New Orleans celebrating the marriage of two incredible people.
