I prefer starting out my Mondays by reflecting on my fun from the weekend. Today I’m dreaming about Annie and Jonathan’s AMAZING New Orleans wedding! Talk about the greatest union of elegant and celebratory EVER!!!!!
Really, all of Annie’s details were just dazzling! Even the invitations had us melting!
And THAT DRESS!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved how calm and happy Annie was the entire time, like she was really enjoying every little second of the day!
Just Face It did a wonderful job prepping Annie for her special day!!!
And did I mention how gorgeous all of the bridesmaids were in their metallic dresses?!?!?! LADIES!!!!
I adored seeing Annie’s face light up as she put her dress on!!!
And the reaction was priceless!
Some favorites, above and below….
Even Annie’s mother-in-law’s reaction was so sweet!
After we got the ladies ready we checked in on the guys!
They were also very busy…. getting ready ( ;
This group had us cracking throughout the entire day. The groomsmen made a wonderful “memory book” for Jonathan. HILARIOUS!
Gotta admit, Jonathan you look pretty sharp in a tux!
After some hanging out in the lobby of Le Pavillon we headed outside for some group photos. Obviously these guys were incredibly camera shy! ( ;
After the guys had some time to soak up the spotlight we met back up with the bridal party, just in time for Annie’s reveal to her Dad. It was heart melting!
Really, could words even begin to describe how proud he looks?!?! <3
Then we took just a few minutes for some group photos! Love how sophisticated this bridal party looked!!!
Then it was time to head to St. Patrick’s Church. Wow!!!
Everyone was seated and all eyes were on the gorgeous bride, especially Jonathans ( :
After a special prayer and roses to the mothers, it was time to seal the ceremony with a kiss!!!
Then they were officially married!!!
In New Orleans they know how to throw a party! Take Annie’s wonderful taste and pair it with great venue like Tomas Bistro, it couldn’t have been a better match! The details, the food, the dance moves……. it was hard to put our cameras down!
That ring left us speechless….
And their band had everyone dancing like crazy!!!!
Then there was the cake cutting. It was a good one ( :
Sweet, sweet Annie……
Don’t worry though, if you’re as loved as Annie someone is always looking out for you ( ;
This dance floor was hot!
Jonathan, we will forever be impressed by this move!!!
The night came to an end way too fast! Annie and Jonathan had some awesome confetti wands for their send off….
And they were perfect!
Mr and Mrs Gillis, thank you two SOOOOOOO much for allowing us to join you on this adventure! Not only did we have an unforgettable weekend, but you made us feel more like welcomed guests than like busy workers. We hope these photos help you relive the wild celebration that was your wedding! Cheers to you both and we’re down to go back to New Orleans whenever you need us!! ( :
