Ashley and Paul’s Second Line Rehearsal Dinner in New Orleans

AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-53

Here is Part One of the epic weekend that Ashley and Paul invited their friends and family to join them in celebrating their marriage! The pair decided to tie the knot in New Orleans, for many reasons. Obviously, New Orleans has a certain charm about it that is undeniable, but mainly they picked this city because it holds a special place in their hearts! These two LOVE this city. Paul actually took Ashley to New Orleans early on in their dating stages, knowing that if she could handle this city and love it for it’s character, flavor, beauty, and charm, then she was the one. Of course, she loved New Orleans, and they have been visiting together ever since.

The “opening night” of their wedding weekend started with a masquerade dinner at the Elm’s Mansion, located in the Garden district.  Guests laughed along to a few roasts of the bride and groom to be, and then we all gathered into a few streetcars and headed to the French Quarter with a full brass band for a celebratory Second Line!!! We shut down the streets as we paraded through singing and dancing along to the band playing. Crowds formed around, and a few strangers tagged along to the joyful dance! The tour ended at The Swamp on Bourbon Street, where the wedding guests kept the party going. It was a lot of fun and excitement, but in reality, we hadn’t even seen the wedding dress yet! Stay tuned for Part Two of Ashley and Paul’s big wedding day, held at the stunning Race and Religious! AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-5AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-7AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-8AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-10AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-12AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-13AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-15AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-17AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-18AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-20AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-16AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-19AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-21AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-22AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-23AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-25AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-27AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-28AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-30AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-31AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-32AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-33AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-35AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-34AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-38AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-39AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-37AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-40AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-41AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-42AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-43AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-44AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-45AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-46AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-47AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-48AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-51AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-53AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-54AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-55AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-56AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-57AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-59AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-60AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-61AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-62AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-63AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-64AshleyPaulWeddingBlog-65
