Joia + Louie Gallery

From the photographer

“Where to even begin with Joia and Louie’s wedding day?!  This couple was stylish and classy in a simply elegant manner from their rehearsal attire to the wedding day dress and suit, to Joia’s reception gown. The New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center could not have been a better match for this couple! This was actually our first wedding at the CAC, and I have to say that it was so much fun to watch the space come alive. The ceremony room is a long narrow room with light flooding in from the windows, exposed beams and ducts, and unfinished floors. Once you move in chairs, florals, a chuppah — the entire space changes dramatically.”

“From the photographer… “After the ceremony the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the main entrance of the gallery, and then they were led into the incredible reception area transformed from warehouse by day to a lush, warm ambiance for their celebration. The decor was amazing! I loved seeing Joia and Louie’s reaction as Blue Gardenia Events led them into the space for their first glimpse. They almost lost it! They were overjoyed with the results.”
