Carli and Josh’s Arbor Room Wedding at New Orleans City Park

 

Carli and Josh’s Arbor Room wedding at New Orleans City Park was absolutely beautiful.   This was a party crowd!   Just wait until you see part two!

 

Here’s their version:

 

Q. We’d love to know more about your wedding plans, especially what you’re doing to make your wedding special or unique for you. Tell us what you envision your ideal wedding to be like.

 

A. We had a few things we really wanted to come across to our guests on our wedding day. We had almost half of our guests coming from out of town, so of course, it was important for us to really show off New Orleans and all of it’s charm. It was nice to do the second line through the french quarter before our rehearsal dinner and have our guests stay at a historical hotel in the French Quarter, but also show them beautiful areas of the city they may not have seen, like City Park. We also really wanted the wedding to look like a representation of the two of us, which I think it really did. Josh’s style is more traditional, while mine is more playful and all over the place. I loved that we both chose a sort of old hollywood red carpet feel for the tux and gown- it definitely suits us well and tied in the contrast between the vintage/traditional look and colorful boho vibe we had throughout the wedding. The flowers were the most important thing for me- and our florist, Destiny of Poppy & Mint, took one picture of a wildflower themed wedding bouquet that I had given her and made the centerpieces, bouquets and decorations of my dreams. I didn’t have a color scheme in mind, I really just wanted beautiful, organic flowers, similar to those you could find at a farmer’s market. I just love the contrast between the bright colorful bouquets and the bridesmaids neutral and elegant gowns. I love that everyone was able to chose their own gowns that suited them well, but they all came together so well! 
The most important thing to Josh was that we have an amazing band. He wanted us and all of our guests to be letting loose on the dance floor the whole night- and honestly, that’s exactly what happened. You can see in the pictures, we really celebrated and had the time of our lives. It was awesome to see that our guests had a ton of fun. Mojeaux is the best- the played a good amount of both old and new songs that everyone could appreciate. 
At the end of the night, we were on such a high that we ran straight through the bubble exit and right into the fountain. I’m still not sure exactly what compelled us to jump in with all of our wedding gear (although there is photographic proof of the groom pushing me in!) but it made for some incredible shots and the was the perfect culmination of the most special night!

 

Q. What inspired your style for the wedding day

 

A. We wanted the wedding to look like a representation of the two of us, not just an insert bride and groom here type of wedding. We also really wanted to play into the beautiful natural surroundings of our venue in City Park. I love the old Hollywood glam look which inspired my dress and hair style. For the flowers and decor, we kind of went for an elegant bohemian vibe, without overdoing either one.Q. What inspired your cake

 

A. we focused on keeping the cake simple, while letting the beautiful mixed flowers do all the work.

Ashley and Ian’s Audubon Tea Room Wedding

 

Ashley and Ian were married in a gorgeous Audubon Tea Room Wedding.  If you’ve never experienced a wedding at the famous Audubon Zoo, then you don’t know what you are missing.   It is certainly one of the most unique venues in the South.

Just read this proposal story,  Ian deserves major props for pulling this one off!

Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details! 

A. For my birthday Ian came in town (he was living in Austin at the time) and had arranged for all of my friends to come in town without me knowing. He had two of my girlfriends come in from Austin and some college friends come in from Baton Rouge and New Orleans. One of my best friends is in Dallas and wasn’t able to come at the last minute because of car trouble, among other things, and Ian even offered to rent her a car so she would be able to make it! He coordinated having my local friends and sister and her boyfriend come out too. He made 11×17 sheets of paper with photos of us throughout our relationship together and had a friend print them out and bring them to a park he had my local friends scope out for him. They had reported that it had a gazebo, which seemed an ideal place for him to propose. The weather almost didn’t cooperate and I found out later the backup plan was a friend’s hotel room…I’m glad that Plan A worked out! Ian told me that I should get dressed to go out, but I had to be blindfolded on the way. He drove me over to the park, but I was convinced that we were going to lunch somewhere. So when I got there I insisted that I would keep my eyes shut if he promised to let me take off the blindfold (so I wouldn’t walk in the restaurant looking like an idiot!). He agreed and walked me out to the gazebo. He told me to open my eyes and I saw all of my friends sitting around the gazebo each holding pictures of us. Then I heard our song playing on someone’s iPod speakers. It was a lot to take in and this is where it gets a little fuzzy. We walked around looking at each of the pictures and then, in the middle of the gazebo, he got down on one knee. I don’t even remember what he said because I just started crying…and of course I said yes!
