Right in the heart of New Orleans, this floral-infused gazebo wedding is a shining beacon of light for future brides because it validates the statement that when it comes to wedding flowers, the limit does not exist. And it just keeps getting better as we glimpse the checkered dance floor, lush 3-tier cake and traditional second line awaiting after the ceremony. Paige and Travis’ romantic Southern wedding emulates elegance with every frame!

Planned by Louisiana event designer, Blue Gardenia Events, no traditional detail went amiss, and from the crest-bedecked napkins to the blue + white china filled lounges surrounding the dance floor, we are reeling!

What made the wedding special and unique? And what were some touches added to make the wedding personal?

We got married in my hometown after moving home from New York City. It had been 10 years since I had lived in New Orleans. It was a celebration of a start to a new chapter in the city where we plan to call home forever (Travis is originally from Chicago). It was a traditional New Orleans wedding in a historic house on St. Charles Avenue – Elms Mansion. We got married in the courtyard under a gazebo that was covered in flowers. Flowers were a key component that created a soft and romantic feel. The reception was in the same location where the courtyard was flipped into a black/white checkered dance floor. We had an oyster bar and a champagne and charcuterie tower. I loved the indoor/outdoor feel of the wedding. My 3yr old niece Avery was the flower girl which was very special to me.

Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!

The gown was a Marchesa that I had my eye on for a year. I saw it in Vogue and found it at Mark Ingram Atelier in NYC. It was truly my dream dress that had a cape I had turned into removable sleeves. I wore the sleeves during the ceremony and took them off for the reception. One of my bridesmaids lent me the veil that she wore at her wedding which was a very meaningful touch. My shoes were Valentino Rockstud ankle strap heeled sandals. They were comfortable and added a touch of edge to the traditional look. The bridesmaid dresses were custom Katie Fong Collection. I worked with Katie to choose the color and material to best suit the ambiance.

What was the most memorable part of the day?

The most memorable part of the day was second lining down St. Charles Avenue after we had gotten married. Kinfolk Brass Band played as we celebrated and danced in the street with our family and friends. Truly an incredible New Orleans tradition.
