Kristi and Aaron’s St. Louis Cathedral Wedding

Arte by CheyAnne & Crystal

I have been waiting for Kristi and Aaron’s wedding for a few years — since Kristi’s older sister Ashley got married!  I photographed Ashley’s wedding, and that was when I met Kristi.  She was a lot of fun at her sister’s wedding, so I knew she’d be a wonderful bride as well.  The story I love to tell most about Kristi happened during Ashley’s second line.  Near the end of the second line, Kristi spontaneously jumped on the trunk of a car!  I was speechless, but of course we got the photo!  So all the hype this time around was, “Would Ashley jump on a car?”  I should also add in here that these are two of the sweetest girls you’ll ever meet — so a totally unexpected action.  I now refer to them as #prevostsistersjumponcars.  :)

Kristi and Aaron’s wedding day was fabulous!  It just went by entirely way too fast.  Aaron is such an extremely thoughtful guy.  I especially loved one of his gifts to Kristi.  He sketched one of their engagement photos and presented it to her framed.  His talent is amazing!  Hey Douglas, why don’t you draw me a picture babe?  Lol.  I knew that they would have a great party for the reception — the dance floor stayed packed all night long.  Kristi and her Dad put on quite the show for their dance.  Kristi and her dad had a battle of sorts that was adorable, and Kristi broke off into some Irish dancing.  Unbeknownst to Kristi her bridesmaids had also put together a routine in the same style.  Very entertaining!  It all helped in setting the tone for the rest of the night.  They didn’t stop!  Thank you so much for trusting us again with your memories. We had a blast! We’re looking forward to all getting together at Christmas to catch up!!  Enjoy!

Allison & Shane’s New Orleans Wedding!

Arte by Doug & Titus

Allison and Shane had a beautiful Jewish wedding ceremony in the gorgeously decorated ballroom of the JW Marriott. For Allison, her day started in the large, two-story bridal suite at the JW Marriott, with us constantly looking out at the sky hoping the rain would hold off! Well, it didn’t hold off entirely, but it finished just in time to go outside after we did their First Look inside the hotel. I have to give credit to Allison for taking it all in stride and not being afraid to go outside for their portraits, knowing the dress could get a little messy with the wet ground. She simply said, I’m only wearing it once and I’d love some great photos of us! That’s all I needed to hear! After making some classic portraits of the bride and groom, Allison and her bridesmaids, in their beautiful pink dresses, walked out to the street car line on Canal street for a classic New Orleans wedding photo opp and it came out perfect! It was then time for the Ketubah signing before heading to the ballroom to exchange vows under a Chuppah that was exquisitely decorated with votives and roses from one the top New Orleans wedding florists, Kim Starr Wise. After an hour of cocktails and relaxing for the newlyweds, everyone sat down for a delicious meal which was quickly worked off when everyone hit the dance floor for the most fun Jewish wedding tradition and danced the Hora, lifting up the bride and groom, followed by their mothers! It was a wonderful evening for all of us and we thank you guys for letting Arte de Vie be a part of it all! We wish you both all the best!

Katie & Damian’s New Orleans Wedding

Arte by Doug & Titus

We had a great time with Katie and Damian, documenting their beautiful New Orleans wedding in the historic St. Mary’s Assumption Church! Katie’s wedding day started off with bridal prep at the Windsor Court Hotel in downtown New Orleans. The rain held out and we were able to do their First Look and portraits outside, and even ran into Keanu Reeves! After they exchanged vows at St. Mary’s it was time to party with one of the great New Orleans wedding bands The Boogiemen, and her entire wedding party made sure the dance floor at The Chicory was packed all night! The newlyweds had a fun send off with a Second Line and confetti toss as they departed in the Rolls Royce! Katie & Damian were such a laid-back and sweet couple to work with, and not once stressed about anything on their big day. Katie even surprised Damian with the ultimate groom’s cake that featured all of his loves….LSU, fishing, hunting, only thing missing was a figuring of Katie in a duck blind to truly encompass all of his loves! Thank you both so much for allowing us to celebrate with you guys, and we truly with you all the best!
