Abbey and Bridges had a classic, elegant, sophisticated, energetic wedding. Beautiful people and beautiful families came together on their wedding day to surround them with love, support and laughter.
Abbey and her girls started their day hanging at her mom’s beautiful house in Old Metairie. She, her bridesmaids and family are hilarious and so so close. What a tight knit family that I am so jealous of. What great love and support she was surrounded with her whole life. Some emotional moments as they thought of Abbey’s father, who was sick. I know he was in their hearts and minds all day. After hanging out and laughing with the girls, and grabbing a few quick pics of the beautiful group, I met Bridges and his family at the church. I noticed immediately what a dynamic family duo to bring together with this wedding. I can only imagine that household with all boys and mom. Mom was outnumbered, but she looked so loved by all of her boys. Both families had such an amazing spirit and sense of humor – I was anxious to see what would go down at the reception.
Right before their wedding ceremony, Abbey and Bridges decided to do a first look in the courtyard. An emotional and sweet moment for just the two of them before they said I do. What a precious moment to watch and I love seeing so much love in my couples during a first look. Their wedding ceremony took place at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Lakeview with friends and family witnessing their love, commitment and union. And following their ceremony, it was time for the party at City Park’s Arbor Room near Popp Fountain. What a beautiful new venue City Park has. Abbey and Bridges had an outside seating area and bar for guests, which was illuminated by candles and the light coming from the fountain. The weather was perfect for the outside area. The inside was decorated with light green hues for St. Patrick’s Day and gorgeous flowers done by Tommy’s Flowers. Elegance and classy. It looked beautiful. The guests were treated to some great food plus Phat Hat, a wonderful band that kept the party going all night. First time I had seen or heard this band and I can tell you, they put on a great show and were great to hear. They definitely are a talented group. Both families were getting down all night together on the dance floor and truly having a great time and enjoying every second of that reception. I love seeing that. I was anxious to see this party and boy they partied and had a good time. It’s always great to see people let loose and have fun and celebrate.
Abbey and Bridges, you were a true joy to work with and I cherished every moment with you both. I am thankful to have been a part of your wedding day and meeting your families. You both are just amazingly sweet people and so precious together. Congratulations! mq
