The Chicory Wedding | New Orleans Photographers | Michelle and George

Old 77 hotel in the French Quarter of New Orleans
The Chicory Wedding

In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describes how opposite forces are actually complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. This is an excellent description of Michelle and George.
Although they both hail from Chicago, George, who grew up on the south side, is an extrovert who listens to hip hop and loves trying new things. Michelle, on the other hand, is an introvert who grew up in the suburbs and adores pop music. However, as yin and yang, they complement each other very well.
The couple met on the job and has been together for almost six years. George proposed at the University of Chicago where Michelle is currently studying for her MBA. George works in sales while pursuing a degree in Economics.
The couple did a first-look, and then the entire bridal party was assembled for some great outdoor shots against the New Orleans style, brick.
Before the party got underway, though, the couple tied the knot before friend and celebrant, Matthew. The lovely white and peach flower arrangements and bouquets for the occasion were provided by Leaf & Petal. Michelle’s strapless gown with its sweetheart neckline and lace-back corset was from Royal Bridal in Illinois. Gaby Jimenez of Fairytales & Brides ensured the bride’s hair and makeup enhanced her already-beautiful features.
The Chicory wedding venue overlooked no detail for this couple’s special day, including providing the venue, the rooms, the food, and arranging for the music. DJ, Aaron Lane made sure the joint was hopping throughout the night.
The photographers took some great shots of the couple sharing some special moments amid the trees and starlit sky, and also of them and their guests setting the dance floor on fire. A big thank you goes to Eric McCallister of Eric McCallister Photography in New Hampshire for coming down to New Orleans to second shoot the wedding with us.
Michelle and George and their entire wedding party had a blast taking photos inside the booth provided by Boogie Booth of New Orleans.
The couple wrapped up the night with a second-line, leading the Kinfolk Brass Band and their party guests down Fulton street. And as they move forward with their life together, strolling the streets of Chicago, they hope to have a dog to share those walks with them.

I would like to give a special thanks to Eric McCallister that came all from Boston to help me photograph this wedding. You should checkout his work www.mccallisterphoto.com
