I was given the incredible honor of being flown to, and put up in, NOLA to photograph Callie and Wes’s New Orleans wedding last month. The ceremony and day’s festivities took place at the most insane venue called Race and Religious. It’s two old creole cottages built in 1853 (one being the old slave quarters) joined by a small sky bridge on the corner of Race and Religious streets and is seriously maybe the sweetest venue I’ve photographed. By sweetest I mean the most amazing, gorgeous, rustic/ chic space for any kind of shoot-let alone a wedding. In fact, this place is so great that Anthropologie shot their 2012 fall catalog there. And of course Callie and Wes, with the help of Elyse of Tying the Knot Wedding Coordination made the place even that more fabulous with their impeccable taste. It was rustic French meets Southern elegance.
What made the wedding however wasn’t the incredible space or the gold painted succulents, but the fact that Callie and Wes’s marriage unified a perfect little family. Wes has three beautiful children that Callie is obviously head over heels for. And they for her. It was simply a fairy tale.
