MARIGNY OPERA HOUSE WEDDING: TIFFANY AND WENDELL
November 18, 2018
New Orleans Destination Wedding
Marigny Opera House Wedding - Tiffany and Wendell
Tiffany and Wendell went from not wanting to do a ceremony, to doing an "elopement style" wedding with 50 guests. They live in Dallas, Texas and have a lot of family members living in Alabama. So, they chose New Orleans to have their wedding celebration! Tiffany chose Marigny Opera House in the Bywater area of New Orleans after seeing photos from Solange's wedding at the same venue. The wedding was held on Sunday November 18th, 2018.
Tiffany and Wendell found me through my Instagram account. They liked my photography style and we communicated primarily via emails over the few months of planning. The plan was to photograph an elopement style wedding but to also do a couple’s portrait session the day before.
Shortly after sunrise on the Saturday before the wedding, we met up in front of the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter for the 1-hour long portrait session. They came to the session with a bag of warm beignets from Café Du Monde. I had hoped they were for me; however, I found out it was for a photo they wanted to get sitting on a bench in Jackson Square! The session was fun, and we captured some great images. Tiffany and Wendell are the sweetest couple and the images captured how much they loved each other!
Wedding day started with Tiffany as she prepared herself for the big day. Their ceremony was so sweet, and it was amazing to see the big smiles on both their faces as Tiffany walked into the venue! The reception was held at the Treme Market Branch. The reception included a New Orleans tradition, a second line! Plus, the second line was led by two New Orleans Mardi Gras Indians!
Thank you so much Tiffany and Wendell for allowing me to capture your special day! What an amazing day it was to spend with both of you!
