After my initial consultation with Maureen I knew we would become fast friends and with her eye for design, that her day would be beyond beautiful! Her and Allan has chosen the gorgeous Carondelet House to celebrate their marriage. They fell in love with the venues art deco design saying it reminded them of Allan’s house. It was very important to Maureen that we sprinkle sentimental elements throughout her design as well as enhance the intimate and romantic vibe of the venue.
On their big day I was getting pretty big myself, already 5 months pregnant, but filled with energy and so excited for her to see everything put together! Partnering with some of my favorite vendors we got to work. tinimade came in and added swags of ivory drapery to accentuate the aisle and I filled the space with my hurricane vases and tall pillar candles. Pigsty brought in the most gorgeous and fragrant gardians to create her flower arrangements. The aroma adding another layer of detail. And with the venues vintage furniture the space was set. As the ceremony started it began to lightly rain, enveloping everyone in this warm, candle lit, intimate setting.
Following the ceremony guests took advantage of the custom bar menu and passed apps while Tres LA and my team worked to flip the ceremony to dinner. Adding personal touches such as his and her champagne glasses, escort card figurine holders and menus created by Shelby Creative Designs.
The tables were covered in beautiful damask linens from Luxe Linens, Pigsty’s full floral arrangements and my candles which we put everywhere. The setting was perfect for the family style dinner which created a sense of unity. After the toasts that had everyone laughing out loud it was time for their first dance to “Into The Mystic”. Vox DJ’s keep the party going all night long while guests enjoyed a DIY candy bar, cakes from Magnolia Bakery and a dessert very close to the couples hearts…homemade beignets fried on the spot by New Orleans Sweet Treats. It was a satisfying feeling putting up my pregnant feet up for a moment to enjoy a sweet treat and watch the happy couple dance the night away.
