A little rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of Carla and Ray’s fun-loving wedding party! After a really fun get ready with Carla’s family and bridesmaids, we dodged the raindrops to the lobby of the Maison St. Charles Hotel for photos. Even total strangers got in on the action of scurrying the beautiful bride along to keep her dry! Meanwhile, the groom and his guys were readying themselves at the Westin Canal Place. The two finally met up at a beautiful, candle-lit Chateau Country Club wedding, and I just can’t get enough of the groom’s jaw-dropping expression as he watched his bride approach in her gorgeous, Cinderella-style gown. After the “I do’s”, the couple jumped the broom and were off to party at a high-spirited reception, complete with a gown change for the bride, and a visit from the Original Pinnette’s Brass Band and a group of Mardi Gras Indians. Congratulations to Carla and Ray and their newly blended families. Wishing you many, many years of continued fun and celebrating together!
