The day really did start like any other, but right after the ceremony, the Danish guests passed out lyrics to a song and they all began singing to Kelli and Simon. Kelli was tearful during this time, and you could tell she was so touched that Simon’s family and friends had done this for them. Following this Danish tradition we dove right into a New Orleans tradition, the Second Line parade! The Coolbone brass band started up, the umbrellas and custom handkerchiefs were passed out, and the police escorted the bride, groom, wedding party and all the guests on a parade through the streets of the French Quarter. Once seated for dinner, the cheerful yet tearful speeches began. Throughout the night you would hear the clinking of forks on the wine and water glasses, and Kelli and Simon would duck under the table for a secret kiss and then climb on to the seats of their chairs for a very cute and public kiss! Other cute Danish traditions were the cutting of the groom’s socks during the first dance and making sure we cut the cake before midnight!
