There is no wedding better than a New Orleans Wedding! And on top of being just a hands down amazing New Orleans wedding, this wedding was special to us for several other reasons. First, Jessica herself is an extremely talented photographer and we’re humbled anytime another photographer asks us to capture their wedding. Second, we’ve been involved with them for the entire journey ever since Ryan asked us to help him photograph himself and Jessica inside of the St. Louis Cathedral for his surprise proposal (which you can see more of here). Third, this has to be the easiest couple to photograph and I’m not streatching the truth at all. The way that Je
So for the start of their day, they both got ready at the Windsor Court. Just before Jessica was ready to head down for her first look with Ryan, she first had an emotional reveal with her father which was one of the sweetest things we’ve seen. Together Jessica and Ryan meet on the street for their own first look and it was something. A lot of couples don’t take full advantage of their first look and once they see each other they’re done. These two took their time, there was no rush, and they made sure to really take in the moment! Belle Soiree – Wedding Planning + Design was there for the entire day to make sure everything went perfectly from the ceremony to the reception. Their vows were said in St. Joseph’s cathedral and the lighting was perfect. The setting sun lit up the aisle with a warm glow from all of the stained glass. Once their epic wedding ceremony was over they rode to the Cannery where the entire reception was decorated with a heavy floral theme inspired by the rain forests of the Pacific Northwest courtesy of Bee’s Wedding and Floral Designs. It was beautiful. This New Orleans wedding was perfect all the way until the sendoff where everyone lined up and Jessica and Ryan ran through a massive amount of bubbles. Of course he stopped… took his time… and gave her a dip in front of all their family and friends. He knows how to not miss an opportunity!!! Jessica and Ryan, we love ya!!
