Last fall we got to travel to one of our favorite places to shoot weddings – New Orleans! Bill and Angelica live in the Dallas area but share a deep love for New Orleans, so when they started planning their dream wedding it only made sense that they plan a destination wedding in their dream location – St Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square! They worked hard to make sure all of the guests received a true feel for the city – from traditional Second Line walk through the French Quarter to the King’s cake at the reception, they did it all.
You may have already seen Angelica and her sisters on our blog a couple of months ago and you can read a lot more about Bill & Angelica’s wedding in the current Star-Telegram Bridal Section (we’re anxiously awaiting the online version to go live!(
Host hotel – The Bourbon Orleans
Ceremony Venue – St Louis Cathedral
Second Line band – Treme Brass Band

This was the first time we have had the opportunity to photograph a Second Line walking through the French quarter – LOVED IT!! And so very Nawlins!
Now on to the reception venue, the Louisiana Swamp at the Audubon Zoo – who wouldn’t want to party amidst the alligators?
Another New Orleans must – the charm pull..
And what could be better for the Groom’s Cake than the famous King’s Cake from Haydel’s Bakery
I don’t remember what song was playing, but I’d be willing to bet that it was either Journey’s or Bon Jovi – they get the best air guitar and lip syncing at most weddings.
