Alexa and Ryan were married in early December, with a ceremony at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, and the reception following at The Jaxson. These two are the cutest, I loved the way they looked at each other, and how sweet Ryan is to Alexa. And, they are both doctors!
There were a lot of logistics to work out for this wedding. Guests were staying in the French Quarter, and their wedding ceremony was in Lakeview. There was a Christmas parade going on in the Quarter that blocked in the Sheraton Hotel, where the bride was staying, for part of the day. In addition to getting all the guests to Lakeview, we also needed to get the large bridal party to City Park for pre-ceremony photos. With a little extra planning, all the transfers happened smoothly! I’m always excited when we make time in the wedding day to take photographs in City Park; they always turn out so well!
Alexa wanted a lavender color palette, and I loved the color of her bridesmaids’ dresses-kind of a smoky lavendar-gray. The bouquets by Leaf + Petal were perfect, and the pale lavender and dark smoky silvers worked beautifully at The Jaxson.
This group was ready to party. Swarma Entertainment was such a fun DJ! Kinfolk Brass Band kept the party going with a secondline at the end of the reception, which took guests out into the French Quarter. Congratulations to Alexa & Ryan!
