Black Tie Wedding with Touches of Blush


If one thing is for certain- it is that our brides are troopers so a little rain is nothing to fear and when you have an equally brave photographer you know the rain is only one of many incredible aspects that make magnificent photos. Arte De Vie captured this darling New Orleans wedding at JW Mariott where the day started off with pouring rain, so in hopes that it would subside, the bride and her party kept a look out, but with little hope the rain did not hold off entirely and it was off to the outdoors for a gorgeous photo opt. Leave it to the stunning bride Allison to take the rain in stride and not be afraid to get her gown a little dirty. Click here to see the Full Gallery

The Art of Diversity

When it comes to your wedding decor you are 100% allowed to get creative and reuse some details from one transition to another. Allison & Shane did just that with their chuppa which was used during their ceremony for their “I do” moment, but transitioned into an aaaaamazing cake display at the reception. If you ask us, it is both functional and stunning- not to mention, totally cost efficient!

You've all heard about our long table obsessions, but have you heard about our new found love of long and round tables? It's true wedding table heaven, if you ask us! The mixture of the two is a nod to elegant-chic wedding decor…. Don't believe us? Look below for proof!

A Theme of Pink

When you have such a darling color palette it is necessary to incorporate it throughout your big day and if you're this lovely duo, you will know how to do it in style. Allison & Shane incorporated soft hues of pink throughout their ceremony by adding touches of sweet pink roses in the bride's bouquet, centerpieces, and even the cake. Blush also made an appearance through the bridal party and the gorgeous stationary.
