After booking over a skype phone call with Sarah & Jack, I knew we would get along, and I had such a fun time with them when they came to New Orleans to look at venues. We looked at multiple places, and nothing was just right for them, until Sarah and Jack saw Il Mercato and fell in love. I’m so happy they ended up booking it for their venue because it turned out to be a perfect fit!
Sarah & Jack were married on a perfect March day. I was obsessed with her dress and hair, she looked like a beautiful ballerina. The florals by Pistil & Stamen really blew me away. Sarah had contemplated doing her own flowers for a long time, and I was very happy when she made the decision to go with Pistil & Stamen. The color palette was so rich and looked beautiful at the venue.
From the beginning, Sarah had an idea of doing a seated dinner with long tables. I loved how it all came together—the linens, tableware, and floral garlands. We don’t do a ton of seated dinners in New Orleans, so I’m always excited to do one—a full table setting looks so elegant compared to our usual cocktail style tables dressed with only a centerpiece.
This crowd was so much fun and dancing all night long! I think these are my favorite secondline photos from any wedding I’ve done, Catherine Masters does an amazing job of capturing emotion. Congratulations to Sarah & Jack!
