The Ceremony: Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church

When you’re a couple beginning to create history of your own, what better place to start your life together than in a place like New Orleans where history and romance abounds. After an almost two-year engagement, Tara and Steve were recently married at St. Patrick’s Church. The church, which sits in the heart of the business district, dates back to the 1840s. It was declared a National Historic Landmark by the Department of the Interior in 1975. The grandeur of the church is enhanced by its Gothic-styled ceiling, which is similar to that of the famous Exeter Cathedral in England. The three large murals behind the altar, which served as a stunning backdrop for the ceremony, were done by Leon Pomarede in 1841.

And speaking of stunning, Tara was certainly that and more in her beautiful, two-piece bridal gown from the award-winning Pearl’s Place Bridal Salon. For the reception, she donned an exquisite gown from The Bridal Boutique by MaeMe. Both gowns definitely fulfilled their roles of keeping all eyes on the bride. Steve didn’t look too shabby, though, decked out in a superbly fitted tux from Top Hat Tuxedo.

The Reception: Bevolo Wedding Reception

For their reception, the couple chose the famous and historical Bevolo Gas and Electric Lights Company, which has its roots in New Orleans dating back to 1945. Their handmade copper lanterns are evident throughout the French Quarter, which fits both their and the city’s romantic and artistic styles. Six decades of family have owned and operated this rustic, but completely romantic, business, which makes it a great place to celebrate a marriage. The lanterns lining the walls cast a romantic glow onto the couple as they had their first dance.
The couple toasted the occasion next to their four-tiered white and silver wedding cake from Zoe’s Bakery on the Northshore, which is known for its fabulous wedding cakes. Then the party really got underway with music provided by DJ Gene Fabre of Killahouse Productions. Food, drinks, and fun were the day’s specialties, and everyone had a blast.
When it was time to make a grand exit, the couple did it up New Orleans’ style by taking it to the streets with a second-line parade.
