I’ve fallen in love with New Orleans thanks to Christopher and Robert’s Beauregard Keyes House New Orleans wedding. They chose the charming historical house because of its parterre rose garden, great wallpapered indoor space, balconies overlooking the stone courtyard perfect for dancing, and the French Quarter location.
The color, the pageantry, the outfit changes, the hats, the fun, the music, the fashion, the Popeye’s, the guests! And shoe game on point. And they did it all in the midst of relocating from NYC back to their southern routes, job hunting, taking the BAR exam, and buying a house.
When I shoot a destination wedding I always shoot a couple of hours at the rehearsal dinner which gives me a chance to get to know all the players. Check out their rehearsal dinner here.
