My (New-Orleans Themed) Dream Wedding Ideas

Yes, you read that incredibly lengthy title correctly. As of the last few years of my life, I have always wanted a warm and whimsical Louisiana flavored wedding. Sometimes, when i am poking around on pinterest, I get caught up on other wedding ideas, but as soon as I go into a Pappadeaux, or take a trip to Disneyland, I regain my overwhelming instinct in what I knew was right all along. Bring out the shrimp gumbo and the jazz, and let me show you what I am thinking:

String Lights, Banana Pudding, Wedding Dress, Sparklers, Jumbalaya, Chalk Board Decor, and The Greatest Ring I Have Ever Seen.

Alright, now I’ll be upfront with you all. While I have been as far south as Houston, TX, I have (sadly) never been to New Orleans. I am hoping to fix that soon though. So, with that said, I am very aware that my magical idea of the 1940’s jazzland is probably just that; a magical far-fetched dream of the actual truth. All I have to go off of is the Disney rendition of New Orleans (*aaheem* Princess and the Frog and Disneyland’s New Orlean’s Square). I would like to say this though… I’m fine with that, and I would LOVE noting more than to theme my future wedding off of that 🙂

Wedding Cinematography / Why I Must Do This

First things first. No, I am not engaged or married. However, I love weddings, and often spend my free time looking at all the clever ideas people incorporate into their weddings. Also, having gone to a wedding just this weekend, I thought it would be appropriate for me to post about this very subject.

You will find that there is a plethora of fantastic wedding cinematography (which I didn’t even know was a thing) that will literally make your wedding look like a feature film. I’m not talking dad with a hand held here, I mean beautifully shot professional wedding videos.

Just watch these, and I dare you not to cry! 🙂

And then I promised myself I was only going to post 3 videos, but I saw this stop motion one, and couldn’t resist sharing it!

I know, I know. Happy Monday 🙂
