When we landed in New Orleans, we knew immediately this was going to be a very different kind of wedding… and it was. In a very beautiful and soulful way. Just as we would expect from the BIG easy.
The wedding was at the groom’s parents’ Baton Rouge, Louisiana home (an hour west of NOLA). The home that the groom and his brother (best man) grew up in.The space and weather was absolutely perfect for this backyard outdoor wedding. The backyard was adorned with a grand tent and a mix of round tables with one very long banquet table (made by the groom/bride!), peach/white romantic roses and pillar candles.
The ceremony was set to take place at 5pm, right around sunset, which made for some lovely lighting. The crafty groom also built the beautiful ceremony backdrop you’ll see in the film. The guests were arriving and the bride was making her finishing touches. The second song in the film “A Thousand Years” (instrumental) was the same song the bride came down the aisle to. We loved it! The next song in the film, “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green, was the couples First Dance song.
