For Shelley and Ryan’s ceremony they decided to have a beautiful destination wedding in New Orleans. Traveling from Indianapolis, they really had the flavor of the city come out in their wedding. When you think of a New Orleans wedding, you think of the St. Louis Cathedral and Pat O’ Brien’s. The ceremony unfolded beautifully in front of the St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square. After the wedding, the Storyville Stomper’s brass band made a second line party all the way down to Pat O Brien’s for the reception. Delicious drinks were served and everyone celebrated for the newlyweds. Before the wedding, I photographed Shelly and Ryan’s beautiful first look at the Astor Crowne Plaza. The couple looked great together and I had a terrific time photographing their good times.
If you ever make it down to New Orleans, you have to try Pat’ O Brien’s famous Hurricane!
