I can't believe it has already been TWO YEARS since I married the love of my life. It truly feels like yesterday! I wanted to share this post because I never shared my wedding details on Facebook or anywhere else. I thought it would be fun for you to see our photos as well as for me to detail all my wedding vendors in case you plan on having a wedding in NOLA!
Photographers and Videographer
I used two photographers for various shoots during my engagement and wedding. Eddie Marroquin Photography shot our engagement photos and our wedding day photos. Jacqueline Dallimore shot my bridal portraits. I loved having two different view points for the specific sessions. It gave me a great variety of photos. We used MaryClare from Palmer Productions/Bride Film for our videography. Choosing a videographer was one of our last decisions but I am soooooo glad we did it- best money we spent!

The Wedding Suite
My formal invitation was the same invitation my mother used for her wedding day by Crane & Co.- same format, same font. I used a slightly larger card that was also a bit thicker. I designed my save-the-date and all my engagement party invites. I wanted them all to be cohesive and color coordinated.
Looking back now, I can't believe how perfectly every component came together. It was pouring rain the day of our wedding but it actually made for such a wonderful memory. So many guests told us afterwards how much of an adventure it was having to get to the wedding and then to the reception in the rain! I couldn't have done it without my mother. She was our "wedding coordinator" and helped tie everything together.
