This Il Mercato Wedding in New Orleans is Like an Indoor Garden Party

February 3, 2018 | Junebug Weddings

Indoor garden weddings are one of our new favorite wedding trends, especially when they are as elegant as this Il Mercato wedding in New Orleans. As you may have guessed, the main features of Krystal and Chris’ decor were the gorgeous floral arrangements and lush table garlands created by Mibellarosa Designs. The old-world charm of the Spanish-colonial style venue, along with the florals, the glitzy table settings, and the scrumptious dessert buffet, truly made this feel like an upscale dinner garden dinner party. Tahiry Humrich Photography did a phenomenal job capturing every beautiful detail and fun moment, including the wedding party’s second line from the church to the reception venue!

The Couple:

Krystal and Chris

The Wedding:

St. Mary’s Assumption Church and Il Mercato, New Orleans, Louisiana





From the photographer: The most important aspect for Krystal and Chris was the comfort and happiness of their guests. They went to great lengths to make sure that everyone who attended their wedding was having fun and felt appreciated for showing up and being a part of their day. I think equally important to them were their religious beliefs and ensuring they honored their closeness to God.



From the florist: Krystal and Chris wanted a really intimate but fun wedding reception. They were completely in love with the church and wanted to keep it very simple there, but they wanted the florals and the overall feeling of their reception to be like a family dinner in an elegant garden with lots of candlelight for warmth and glow. We helped pick out table linens to make the tables feel more lush and pop in photos. Their sweetheart table was adorned with a bed of garden roses, clematis, sweet pea, foxglove, and other fragrant delicate blooms. Their long family table had a garland with wild flowers spilling from it.

From the photographer: When considering the timeline, make sure you factor in time to relax. A tight timeline will leave a couple stressed and feeling the like day went by in a blur! Consult with your wedding planner and photographer to make sure the timeline has plenty of built-in cushion and relaxing.
