Real Weddings: Sarah and Michael

All of the photos that we receive from our awesome brides make me smile, and today's featured real wedding hits a soft spot for me, combining home-made goodness and historical charm.

Sarah & Michael were married at the Musee Conti Historical Wax Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana. Situated right in the French Quarter, the museum has exhibits depicting the history of the state. There were plenty of photo ops with the wax people and out in the sun-kissed streets.

Sarah's bridesmaids wore Dessy Collection Style 2808 in the color Oasis, a fun little satin number with a pencil skirt and ruffled bodice.

Using a color palette of turquoise, ivory and gold, Sarah DIY-ed all the flowers for the wedding using pages from Pride and Prejudice. As an English major, I was delighted with this small detail! The wedding favors, Mardi Gras beads with memento tags, were also handmade.

Towards the end of the wedding, the brass band played as they did a Second Line, a local tradition where the couple dances with umbrellas and everyone else follows behind.

"We live in New Orleans, but most people at the wedding came from out of town. Everyone said they had a great time, which we were super happy about because we believe we live in the best city in the world."

Congrats Sarah and Michael, what a great way to celebrate in your beloved city. We hope that the party continues in your wonderful life together!
