We always relish the opportunity to spend an entire wedding weekend with a couple. From the rehearsal dinner through the grand exit at the reception, you're able to glean a great deal about who the couple are as individuals as well as how they flourish together.
In the case of Trevor and Mary, I have known the groom for a few years; but it was still eye-opening to learn the history between them through the eyes of their family and closest friends. Upstairs at Ralph's on the Park was such a nice setting for these stories and really added to the ambiance of the evening.
Flash forward a few days and a couple of miles to Mary's parents' home for all of those great bridal prep scenes we've come to love capturing. It's always special to have the bride and her friends relax and enjoy the process of getting ready for the night's main event. Here we met with our cohorts in capturing the day - Dark Roux- for the first time. We really enjoyed working with them throughout the evening, and they produce some stunning shots.
After zipping up and toasting the bride, everyone proceeded to the gorgeous chapel at the Academy of the Sacred Heart, New Orleans for the wedding Mass. I think the look on Trevor's face as he sees Mary for the first time really says it all as you could feel the emotion the two of them have for one another.
From here, the caravan made the short jaunt to New Orleans Country Club for the grand reception. BRW provided the energy and tunes to get the dance floor moving, and the couple and their guests had an outstanding night. Special thanks to Alyssa Brown for coordinating everything behind the scenes to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. Also want to give a shout out to Bittersweet Confections for the gorgeous wedding wake and La Louisiane Bakery for that great street car groom's cake.
Congrats again to Mary and Trevor! We hope this trailer not only gets you excited for your feature but will serve as a quick and easy reminder of one of the most memorable weekends of your entire life!
