Arte by Doug & Titus
Casey & Douglas were married in one of my favorite places of all, Jackson Square! Granted I’m a little biased since that’s where I was married one year agoCasey started off the day with her bridal prep at the Royal Sonesta, where just the night before her and her girls were having a great time throwing beads from their Bourbon Street balcony. We were a little worried about the weather as it was really overcast and light rain was predicted, but overall it didn’t have any negative effect on the day at all. To those who say rain on your wedding day is good luck, well, they probably didn’t have a rainy wedding day. I’ll take dry weather every wedding weekend!
The ceremony was sincere and light-hearted as the minister even incorporated his iPad to the sermon and how he used Facebook to learn a bit more about Casey and Douglas. Once the vows were over all the guests retreated to the center of the Square for cocktails while we finished their group portraits and a few shots of the newlyweds. The cloudy weather actually helped in me getting a more dramatically lit portrait by the gates of the Square, which is a style I really like. A 2nd Line parade then took everyone through the Quarter to the Wax Museum for the party to start. But first, we ran over to the Desire sign on Bourbon and a Lucky Dog stand for a few fun pics with Casey and Doug.
The rest of the night was a really great party and Doug spent a quite a bit of time on the dance floor for a groom, so props to you buddy! The end of the night though may be the most talked about part of their wedding. Not only did they exit through a shower of sparklers, they then hopped on their tandem bike which they brought with them from Florida, and rode off into the sunset! Ok, so it was really the neon lights of Bourbon Street, but work with me here people! Casey & Douglas, thanks so much for including us in your big day and we wish you both all the best!
