A Romantic and Fun Outdoor New Orleans Wedding

Annie and Brad’s wedding at one of our favorite New Orleans wedding venue, Race + Religious, by our favorite New Orleans wedding photographers, Arte De Vie, looked like fun TIMES 1,000! Highlights of the day included a cocktail hour before the ceremony (it is Nola after all!), lots and lots of dancing, champagne poured straight from the bottle into mouths on the dance floor, mercury candle holders turned into awesome drinking chalices, huge inflatable swans in the pool that the bride and groom later jumped on, wedding gown and all, and a departure for the record books! More from their photographer on the best.exit.surprise.ever, below:

“As Annie and Brad ran through the sparklers, Annie was met with a sparkling brand new Jeep at the end of the tunnel. She stopped, gasped, and turned back to look at Brad, who was beaming that his surprise went so well. They had apparently been talking about getting a Jeep, but Annie had no idea it would happen that night. She was in shock saying, “Is this real life?!” It was a really awesome moment to document, and as they hopped into it Annie was saying, “I want to drive!” I half expected her to quickly jump over to the driver’s seat. They took a spin around the block and came back to finish out the party. I know there was an after party too, I’d imagine the group went well into the night! I love a good celebration and party!”
