French Quarter Wedding - Jackie & Cody
This wedding, the one you're about to relive, has to be one of the most crazy, love filled, and emotional weddings that we've ever had the privilege of photographing.
It started on the Thursday before the wedding. We got the announcement that a hurricane, the first week of October, was rolling in the gulf and headed straight for New Orleans. In my head, I was like, "oh that's just fucking perfect." We had been looking forward to Jackie and Cody's wedding for months, these two amazing people were coming in with all their family and friends from Chicago, and it was the first to kick off our season.
The girls at Unique Weddings & Events, kept it together like the professionals they are and made sure everything went off without a hitch, despite having to move the entire wedding up. The city of New Orleans issued a mandatory curfew in the city that forced everyone to be closed up at 5 pm. That totally threw things, considering their ceremony was set to start for 6pm.
Nothing stops New Orleans from having a party, not even a hurricane, and so we made do and it turned out even better than I had ever expected.
Jackie and Cody shared their love for one another inside of a beautifully candle lit Broussard's. There were so many tears and emotions, the love, the passion it filled the room with the best vibes ever. This is the kinda' stuff we live for, the kind of people we love to be around. Thank you Jackie and Cody, y'all are amazing!
