I can't think of a better way to cap my rush of fall weddings than with Ashley and Mark's French Quarter wedding. These two live in Houston, and when we met for their engagement session a few months ago, we became fast friends. I knew it was meant to be when A&M spent no less than fifteen minutes during our session debating a topic near to my heart: Prince or Michael Jackson? (I'm an MJ like Ashley.)
Ashley and I began the day at her mom's incredible home in Gentilly Terrace, eventually meeting up with Mark during their wedding ceremony at Chateau LeMoyne. Their wedding day was relaxed and sweet, with plenty of quiet downtime early in the day, followed by a courtyard ceremony that had everyone bathed in golden afternoon light.
Since it was so hot (on the 29th of October!!), A&M had decided to cut the length of their second line. But the police escort led us the full length of the parade--sixteen blocks, I believe! I think everyone ended up glad that we unknowingly signed up for a long second line. I know I did! We were all ready to jump in the pool once we arrived back at Chateau LeMoyne, but we resisted and partied the night away in the courtyard. Congratulations, y'all!
