Elegant New Orleans Wedding Inspiration

Sometimes it’s really important to get brides out of the “what everyone else is doing” box, but it can be a challenge! It’s so much fun and amazing to see what you can do with your wedding when you use a little imagination. If you’re in love with a certain destination, who says you have to actually go there in order to have your wedding there? Bring the wedding to your location with destination-inspired themes! That’s what happened with this incredibly Elegant New Orleans Wedding Inspiration photo shoot!


By taking the eclectic New Orleans culture, wedding traditions, a few french foods and gorgeous decor, this New Orleans-themed wedding took place at One Eleven East, Austin, TX! But you’d never know by looking at this styled photo shoot!


The styled shoot was in its planning stages just prior to the designer, Heavenly Day Events, leaving for a trip to the REAL New Orleans! That is when the wheels started turning and planning began for an actual New Orleans themed wedding in the Lone Star State!
