Romantic New Orleans wedding inspiration at Race + Religious
Did you all catch this morning’s celestial-inspired wedding here on le blog? We’ve got another stunner for you today, with this New Orleans wedding inspiration at Race + Religious, as planned by Mint Julep Productions with florals from Amanda Jewel Floral + Design. Thanks to Four Corners Photography for sharing the images below!
A venue this gorg has to have a show-stopping bouquet, don’t you think?
Race + Religious, wanted the team to show off parts of the space that aren’t often used in real weddings, so be sure to reference the photos throughout if you’re looking for unique ways to utilize all the nooks and corners of this property…
A few words on the design, from Amanda Jewel Floral + Design… It was fun to dream up new ideas to inspire couples from both a design standpoint and also evoke some originality for the venue. For example, we placed the cake inside one of the outdoor fireplaces, the ceremony in the greenhouse and the table underneath the canopy tree rather than using that space as the ceremony area, which has been done before. We made custom candle holders, used brass name cards, and the bouquet was made complete with various foraged elements around the city itself!
You can snag these modern tabletop pieces over at West Elm, BTW. Good finds, team!
Another favorite element of this shoot: the model couple is a real couple and it was their one year anniversary on the day of this shoot. They had so much chemistry, it was unreal! We’re so thankful we got to capture such real emotions, and also make new memories and preserve this special time for this sweet couple as they celebrated this milestone in marriage.
Last but not least, the aforementioned cake by Melissa’s Fine Pastries. Love this pop of color with the muted pastel tones of the venue.
