We're so excited to share the images from Magen + Allan's wedding in New Orleans. We've come to LOVE Magen - she's the most energetic, passionate bride we've ever met! (We love you, too Allan - but we came to know Mags first during the planning process and she stole our hearts!)




A little (or not-so-little!) bling to start the morning.

Wedding

New Orleans, LA

This was a very cool angle that Meg sniffed out - four hands at once!



The New Orleans street made for a great backdrop behind the wedding dress.

Christian Louboutin provided something blue. And isn't Magen radiant?!

Pretty flowers all in a row... my Meg really loved the jeweled fleur de lis pinned to Magen's bouquet.



While Magen was working with Meg on her bridal portraits, Allan & the boys were hanging out on the street level waiting for the ceremony to begin.



A stunning view of the ballroom at the Bourbon Orleans New Orleans.

More of Magen while we are at it... we rarely have more than a minute or two for photos of the bride alone on the wedding day - but with Magen running right on schedule, my Meg had some playtime with the bride. Lucky for us all, they found this lovely open ballroom for a fitting backdrop.



We found a vintage sofa tucked away in a corner & just couldn't resist using it.



Magen hanging out in the window overlooking the French Quarter.



That is Meg's mom and mother-in-law hanging out with the ladies...on their way to the ceremony!

Nothing says New Orleans like a saxophone to guide the bride down the aisle.

An emotional first sight.



The entire ceremony was covered in an orangey afternoon glow.



What a perfect setting for a wedding - in Jackson Square with the incredible St. Louis Cathedral as the backdrop.

After the vows were complete, Mags led the bridal party & all of their guests around the French Quarter in a traditional New Orleans second line.



We've seen Smitty Dee's at three different second line processionals now. It's always a party when they lead the line.

During the second line through the French Quarter, the group happened upon several street performers.

Strangers lined balconies to see the parade go by - tossing Mardi Gras beads to the guests!





After the second line, the guests were ushered into the reception, and we stole a few moments with the bride & groom.







There's that gorgeous ceremony light again.

Just can't get enough of those Louboutin's.

We started off the night with dancing - Allan with his mom...



... and Magen with her dad.



We had the pleasure of working with a truly amazing "southern rock" party band hailing from Memphis, TN called The Super Five. I'm pretty sure Megan & Allan knew them from their college days - and let me tell you...they were amazing! Check out their website, and if you need a wedding band, HIRE THEM! I'd love to see these guys again - they were awesome.



And while I am giving a few shout-outs, I have to mention the fantastically talented ladies over at Get Polished. Emily and Valerie rocked this wedding, as usual and are (as always) most highly recommended to any New Orleans soon-to-be-wed.





How about some southern mason jars as wedding favors? These were filled grits and included a recipe for the yummy shrimp & grits - served at the reception. Smarty Pants!

The only drawback to their cute favors - the grits were incorporated into the sendoff... leaving a very messy bride & groom!

Congratulations you two! We love you!!!
