As promised, the incredible part two to Carrie+Ben’s wedding day!

Putting into words just how amazing Carrie and Ben’s day was is nearly impossible. From the location, the food, the details and the couple themselves, it was a day filled with love and surprises and a whole lot of fun.

I’m going to try to give a short synopsis of some of my favorite details and let the pictures themselves fill in the rest.  First of all, if you can’t tell from Part 1, Carrie and Ben are a force. Smart, determined, fiercely loyal to their friends and family…they planned a day that couldn’t have been a more perfect reflection of themselves. They love good food, both have impeccable style and even though they reside in NYC, are proud and celebrate their Mid-Western roots (Carrie hailing from Michigan and Ben from Ohio). It was a destination wedding for all and filled with traditions from both of their backgrounds and New Orleans itself.

My personal favorite of the day was right after the ceremony, the brass band Kinfolk came marching in, ready to take the newly married couple and the wedding guests on a march throughout the streets of New Orleans for the second line. I can’t even look at the pictures from this part of the day without humming ‘When the Saints Come Marching In’ out loud.

Other fun details to note…the girl’s hairpieces, guys boutineers and two of Carrie’s headpieces (love me a girl who changes it up throughout the day!) were done by none other than the amazingly fabulous Pixel+Hank. The day was coordinated by the super sweet Patricia from P.S. Creative who I whole-heartedly hope to work with again someday. After the ceremony Carrie changed into her mom’s super long and super gorgeous wedding veil from the ’70s. It was fun to see the flower detailing matching Carrie’s own wedding dress!  The food was ridiculously good and set up all throughout the venue’s various buildings and outdoor areas.

Carrie and Ben’s first dance was under the stars surrounded by sparklers. Carrie sang karaoke (Carrie-oke?) and I was thoroughly impressed that she sang every.single.word. to ‘Baby Got Back’ without a prompter. At the end of the night, traditional muffulleta was served to the guests. I left with a lot of full memory cards and a happy heart. Carrie + Ben – I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your celebration. Enjoy enjoy!
