We knew the second we got the inquiry for this beautiful wedding, we were going to be in love with all the detail! Working along side Ruby and Pearl Events and the MOB, Angela, while our bride Laura was in med school was a great experience. Featured today on Southern Weddings, here is some more fun facts about this lovely couple.
From the ladies at Southern Weddings, "Say ‘hello’ to today’s bride Laura! She and her beau Caleb met in medical school and these soon-to-be doctors fell in love over library study sessions and the occasional night out. Laura and Caleb were inspired to plan a wedding day with the old world feel that she had fallen in love with on family travels to Italy and Spain. Laura knew she loved New Orleans and its historic, romantic architecture, and upon discovering the Il Mercato, NOLA proved to be the perfect place for a destination wedding… of 275 friends and family! Y’all know we like our weddings like our hair here in the South, big! And what pairs well with big hair? Good food, of course! A girl after my own heart, Laura said, “A Southern wedding must also have lots of good Southern food.” And judging by their menu of such delicacies like barbecue shrimp and grits, duck confit, and blue crab beignets (!), I’m sure all their guests left with full bellies and full hearts!"
This custom lounge space is filled with Sophia (off white settee), Maggie Twins, Martha Twins, Amanda Bench, and cream coffee table with mirror top.
The MOB provided lux pillows and family rug that tied the whole space together at Il Mercato.
From our bride, Laura : When we chose a first look it was not primarily for a “staged photo shoot,” but simply because we wanted an intimate moment to ourselves to catch our breath, calm our nerves, and say “I love you.” Caleb is such a calming force for me when I am anxious and this helped me get ready to say “I do” without being so nervous.
