English Turn | New Orleans Wedding Photographers | Ruby and Stephen

October 16, 2015

Ruby and Stephen’s New Orleans wedding was so much fun and the day was simply perfect. Ruby and her girls had an entire chateau at English Turn Country Club to themselves for bridal prep, and Stephen and his guys actually had a bar to themselves, so I was quite proud to see them all standing before the ceremony! Their first look was amazing, especially Stephen’s reaction when Ruby surprised him with his gift of a book from a special photo shoot just for him. The wedding ceremony took place at St. Joseph’s Church in Gretna, which, really could be anywhere in Europe once you see it. It’s simply gorgeous! After the vows were exchanged it was time to head back to English Turn where everyone danced the night away to the amazing sounds of The Phunky Monkey’s. The entire evening was expertly coordinated by Brooke Casey Weddings, which was very special as Brooke and the bride have been very good friends for a long time! We had a blast with Stephen and Ruby during their engagement shoot and an equally fabulous time documenting their wedding day. Thank you both for allowing us to be a part of this very special time in your lives, and we wish you both all the best! Enjoy!
