Taylor & Logan's Fall Wedding
Taylor & Logan messaged me from Madrid to tell me about their New Orleans wedding plans. I love meeting travelers and I immediately wanted to play a role in documenting their love story. Then here comes Covid...as they were teaching in Spain, their lives changed very quickly. Of course, I began to worry about how this would effect their wedding date. Almost all my 2020 couples had to postpone to 2021. But Taylor and Logan's wedding was scheduled for late October, hopefully things would be safer by then. As the date approached, things still felt difficult, but talk about the ability to pivot. Thankfully Taylor & Logan were able to keep their date. They made some big changes to continue celebrating their love during a Pandemic. Some of the changes included; going from 150 guests to under 50, moving the event from inside The Pontchartrain Hotel, up to the Hot Tin Bar, an open air rooftop, going from night to day, and of course mandatory masks for the guests inside the church. The smaller intimate affair was just perfect. It's my honor to share their love with you!
I was standing across the street to capture this gorgeous scene, so I had no idea what was happening when this car pulled over. Here I was thinking someone was asking for directions. Nope, they pulled over to serenade our newly married couple. So darling....Only in New Orleans as we say!
Sometimes you just have to get everyone together
Boy did we get lucky with the weather. The morning was perfectly overcast, not too hot and in the afternoon sun came out to play. The city looked beautiful from the balcony of the Hot Tin Bar. You could feel the love between these two, it just made everyone around them glow. What a beautiful wedding. I felt so blessed to be a part of it all!
