How did you meet and how long have you been together?
We met in 2013 at a bar during Jazz Fest. I was living in Nola and David was on a weekend trip with some buddies and we just so happened to be at the same place at the same time. We’ve been together for 4 years
What were your highlights of the day? Were there any surprises?
The highlight and biggest surprise of the day was the monsoon pour down that started just as we were starting our second line. It wasn’t supposed to rain, and thankfully the rain held out because we had an outdoor ceremony/reception. The rain during the second line was so magical. Everyone was soaking wet in their tuxedos and dresses, smiling, dancing, singing, cheering.. And you could see random people cheering us on from their balconies, amazed at how dressed up and soaked everyone was, with not a care in the world. It was so perfect!
What advice would you give to other couples planning their day?
1- Enjoy the process! Don’t sweat the little things because they won’t matter in the end anyway. 2- Hire a really good photographer and videographer, because the day goes by so fast and you won’t remember everything. So with good photos and video, you’ll get to relive your beautiful day over and over!
Ceremony Location | What made you decide to get married there?
The Omni had everything we wanted: outdoor terrace, great food, excellent location, helpful and knowledgeable wedding coordinators, and the classy, old school Nola charm that we love so much.
