Ashley & Dustin’s love story dates back to 2002. After many years of dating, they have finally become husband & wife. They had the most beautiful New Orleans courtyard wedding in May. The day started out at The W on Poydras with the guys hanging by the pool, and Ashley & her girls getting all dolled up by the ladies of About Face.
Once everyone was ready, the entire bridal party headed to the ceremony location – Hotel La Marais. Even though Ash was running fashionable late due to limo’s being stuck in traffic, we still did a quick first look to get all the butterflys out of the way. I’m so glad even with the delay in getting to the ceremony location, that Ashley still wanted to proceed with the FIRST LOOK – I’m thrilled with the images Jay & I were able to get.The courtyard of the Hotel La Marais is a stunning location for an intimate ceremony! It was standing room only in the courtyard after all of their family & friends gathered around to watch them say their vows.Now, everyone knows that New Orleans is known for it’s parades . . . so naturally the wedding party paraded / 2nd lined to the reception location – Tipitina’s. After parading through the French Quarter streets to Tipitina’s it was time for the party to begin! The band, NO IDEA was amazing, and had the crowd on the dance floor all night long.As the mother of teenaged boy, the above image gets me teary eyed thinking of the day that he gets married – not that I’m rushing it. LOL.
Congrats to Ashley & Dustin – Love you guys!!! xxooxx
