Prepare to embark on a visual journey because, Alex and Matt’s wedding? It’s beyond. From the hint of Blush details, the Bride’s beautiful wedding gown, this celebration had got chic written all over it. The bride and groom prefer ice cream over cake, so they decided to have the mother of the bride completely in charge of the wedding cake. And oh-boy! Did she delivered! The classic cake is a total masterpiece that highlighted the entire reception. But the best part? They had their destination wedding in New Orleans and the results were nothing short of spectacular decor and good times galore. The incredible Mark Eric captured beautifully this New Orleans Destination Wedding that is The Epitome of Romantic Glamour, and we’ve got it al waiting in THE FULL GALLERY!
From the bride... "When we started to plan our wedding, we thought about the weddings that we’ve been to and decided that there are only three key ingredients to a successful wedding reception: 1.) good music, 2.) good food, and 3.) happy people. That’s why New Orleans is the perfect place for our wedding – it’s internationally recognized for people “passing a good time” (of course, the alcohol doesn’t hurt!!) and that’s why we can’t wait to share all of the things that make the bride’s hometown one-of-a-kind: from our second line to bananas foster and southern cocktails, we hope our 'Laissez les bons temps rouler' theme will inspire many smiling faces throughout our wedding day! We’re just hoping that our little pup, Nola, can make an appearance at some point to make our day complete."
What inspired your style for the wedding day? "Having lived all over the country, we like the mix of vintage and modern, southern yet midwest…we truly want our wedding to be a reflection of who we are!"
What inspired your cake? "We prefer ice cream to cake any day and we were going to pass on having a cake until my mom insisted that some people come to weddings to eat cake, so we told her she should pick it and she did – we didn’t even have a tasting! Although we’re still having cake complete with cake pulls for the single ladies, instead of cake, we’ll be treating ourselves to Banana’s Foster instead."
