Welcome to the best day EVER!! No really, I truly will remember Anna Grace and Michael’s New Orleans Galerie Del Galatoire wedding for the rest of my life. It’s hard to explain how special this one is. I’ve known sweet Anna Grace since literally before I can remember, and watching her marry the love of her life was more fun than I can even say! Plus, it was legitimately the most joyful day that brought the New Olreans HEAT!
Are you ready for the story of Anna Grace’s dress?! 20 years ago, AG was the flower girl in her Godmother’s wedding and loved her dress. She asked her godmother if she could have it re-made for her day, and that’s just what she did! It was so special seeing her help the bride get dressed, along with her momma!
The couple spent the majority of the day getting ready at the gorgeous Hotel Monteleone, where they had their ceremony and cocktail hour. Each couple had a squad of their favorite people surrounding them, which made for such a great party all day long! After sharing a first look in the Riverview Room in the Hotel Monteleone, we took dreamy portraits of everyone before the ceremony even started! After a cocktail hour and sunset portraits on the roof, Anna Grace + Michael shut down the streets of New Orleans with the most epic second line led by the Kinfolk Brass Band. Brooke Casey Weddings organized the day, and for such a big wedding day with lots of moving pieces, it all went off without a hitch!
The second line ended at the reception venue, the brand new Galerie Del Galatoire wedding venue. It made an incredible backdrop for a perfect night! They say guests remember the food and the band from a wedding – well people will CERTAINLY remember the best evening!
Anna Grace + Michael are currently medical school residents in Louisiana, and I’m truly so proud to know them. I can’t wait to see where their adventures lead. I can tell you that their adventures started in the best way! Have fun on your honeymoon and enjoy the extended sneak peek, friends!
