Brian and Elizabeth hosted their special day at Maison Dupuy Hotel in the French Quarter. The weather was a perfect 70°(ish) and sunny which is exactly what anyone would want for a New Orleans courtyard wedding.
Their ceremony was rich with color. The courtyard's varying brick color brought out the soft pinks to the vibrant blue. There were pink and white rose petals lining the isle with a shade darker pink from the uplighting. The soundtrack for the ceremony was performed by a violinist and a cellist. Who did a fantastic job. (If you know their names please mention them in the comments below for us to tag) One of my favorite aspect of the ceremony was Brian and Elizabeth holding hands side by side, seemingly the entire time. To me, that is a sub conscionable signal saying that they will face everything that life throws at them head on and together.
Our happy couple made their grand entrance to the reception setting the mood with "This Will Be an Everlasting Love" by Natalie Cole. Nothing less than a certified classic, "Strangers In The Night" was the song for their first dance as a married couple. Elizabeth then danced with her father to "What a Wonderful World" by none other than Louis Armstrong. Shortly after, Brian danced with his mother to "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts.
I love the variety that was selected for the reception. A funk all-star, Stevie Wonder set the initial tone, then some Zydeco, followed by 60s Rock, and ended out with some 2000s HipHop. All of the guests seemed to have a great time. To Brian and Elizabeth, thank you for having us!
