Festive New Orleans Wedding

This beautiful New Orleans wedding comes to us from Doug & CheyAnne Keese of Arte De Vie! Here’s more about the wedding and the happy couple from Arte De Vie:

We had a great time with Katie and Damian, documenting their beautiful New Orleans wedding in the historic St. Mary’s Assumption Church! Katie’s wedding day started off with bridal prep at the Windsor Court Hotel in downtown New Orleans. The rain held out and we were able to do their First Look and portraits outside, and even ran into Keanu Reeves!

See more after the cut!

After they exchanged vows at St. Mary’s it was time to party with one of the great New Orleans wedding bands The Boogiemen, and her entire wedding party made sure the dance floor at The Chicory was packed all night! The newlyweds had a fun send off with a Second Line and confetti toss as they departed in the Rolls Royce! Katie & Damian were such a laid-back and sweet couple to work with, and not once stressed about anything on their big day.
