Carly envisioned saying “I do” to her Navy beau Hunter in a traditional Southern wedding in New Orleans. Marigny Opera House served as the perfect ceremony venue, lined with gold chairs and ivory petals along the antique tile. Dark Roux beautifully documented the romantic gold and cream details designed by Unique Weddings in New Orleans, along with the couple’s absolute bliss as they strutted through The Big Easy as husband and wife.
Carly and Hunter
Marigny Opera House, New Orleans, Louisiana
I knew that I wanted a traditional Southern wedding and Hunter wanted a big military wedding. I’d definitely say we pulled off both. We didn’t have a “color” or theme, but stuck to creams, white, fluffy flowers and our custom gold monogram that we incorporated throughout. We wanted our family and friends to feel welcomed in The Big Easy, we were so glad they traveled to be with us.
Every-single-thing. The ceremony was just beautiful, but I don’t think we have ever felt as in love as we did during our first dance. I also really liked showing him off in the streets during the New Orleans second line.
The Couple Recommends:
Each of our vendors, especially our wedding coordinator, Brittani from UWINola and Heather from Dark Roux were such a pleasure to be around during a hectic time. I would chose them over and over again.
