Where to even begin with Joia and Louie’s wedding day?! This couple was stylish and classy in a simply elegant manner from their rehearsal attire to the wedding day dress and suit, to Joia’s reception gown. The New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center could not have been a better match for this couple! This was actually our first wedding at the CAC, and I have to say that it was so much fun to watch the space come alive. The ceremony room is a long narrow room with light flooding in from the windows, exposed beams and ducts, and unfinished floors. Once you move in chairs, florals, a chuppah — the entire space changes dramatically. After the ceremony the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the main entrance of the gallery, and then they were led into the incredible reception area transformed from warehouse by day to a lush, warm ambiance for their celebration. The decor was amazing! I loved seeing Joia and Louie’s reaction as Blue Gardenia Events led them into the space for their first glimpse. They almost lost it! They were overjoyed with the results.
If you’ve been following our last few posts, you’ve seen that we’ve been focusing our blog posts around the film we’ve shot at the last several weddings. This post is also all film, and I have to say, I’m in love! These images feel so timeless, and just that extra edge of artsy. The moments captured are gorgeous, the smiles contagious, and the energy unmatchable. It’s important to keep growing in your profession. I’m excited to see our growth. We are thrilled with the direction film is taking us. I hope that you are all enjoying it as well. Joia and Louie, I know you have an appreciation for the arts as well, I hope you will soak these images up! You guys looked incredible and were amazing! We had a wonderful time being a part of your celebration, thank you for including us! Enjoy!
