As promised, we’re pretty sure the images of this beautiful reception will make your heart skip a beat. The girls at Bella Blooms, Elms Mansion, The Sweet Life Bakery, and Wink Design really made this a glamorous New Orleans wedding that won’t soon be forgotten.
After slipping into her Chic Parisien wedding dress, Sofia and her bridal party met up with Joseph, and all friends and family at St Joseph’s Church in New Orleans for a heart-felt ceremony. St Joseph’s is rumored to have the longest aisle in the South- many brides love getting married at St Josephs just for this reason. You can view more from the first part of Sofia and Joseph’s wedding day, including getting ready and the ceremony, an part one of their blog post: click here to see more.
Once the ceremony was over, Sofia and Joseph traveled to The Elms Mansion where the celebration would be waiting. After settling in for a few minutes, they were introduced as Husband and Wife in the beautiful tent set up by Wink Design and Bella Blooms. They enjoyed their first dance as husband and wife before settling in to dine with the rest of their friends and family. After dining- they met up at the beautiful cake created by The Sweet Life Bakery, which was hanging on it’s own pedestal suspended in a beautiful display. The cake cutting led way to the celebration- filled with salsa, hip hop, and of course some New Orleans favorites. But that’s not where the party ended! Just as everyone assumed the celebrations were coming to a close, Sofia and Joseph invited everyone inside Elms Mansion for the after party where they were entertained by the amazingly talented “Felix and Fingers” from Chicago. This was certainly a night to remember!
