New Orleans Wedding Photographer | Keeley + Eric

Thursday, March 7th, 2019

I have been to New Orleans once before, but never as a wedding photographer! So when Keeley and Eric said they were getting married there, I was stoked! And then she said the magic words “French Quarter”. Thank you, yes. As a Houston wedding photographer, this was exciting! For Keeley, New Orleans is home. It’s where she grew up, this she wanted to be married there. Eric, being awesome, was like “let’s do it!”.

Personality Plus

When they were deciding on locations to be married, Keeley was thinking about how the spaces would reflect their personalities. Being a bit of a nerd, Keeley loves anything Harry Potter, The Office, Parks and Rec, to name a few. Thus, when she found a venue called Tomas Bistro, she knew it was “the one”. You know why? Because in Parks and Rec there’s a Tom’s Bistro!! I, being the enabling nerd photographer that I am, was thrilled.

Keeley also showed her passion for other fandoms in the signs she peppered around the venue. Signs that said “After all this time? Always” or a bar sign that referenced guests solemnly swearing they were up to no good. You know, classy Harry Potter touches! She also wore Harry Potter socks, which made me want a pair of my own! As well, there was a sign at the start of the ceremony aisle that read “until the very end”, which is something that instantly makes me tear up!

Keeley and Eric are passionate about their dogs, so they walked Keeley down the aisle with her brother. It was super cute, and I was kind of hoping they would stick around for the reception but that would be impractical ha ha!

Other Beautiful Details

The details in this wedding were beautiful and touching. Keeley’s mom made the pipped arch in the ceremony site, and spent tireless hours making the flowers on it look perfect. She also designed and made Keeley’s bouquet! As a big fan of reading, I loved the tables at the reception, as they were peppered with books. The books displayed the personalities of both Keeley and Eric, and when paired with the flowers and other decor touches, it looked gorgeous!

Keeley, being an awesome pragmatist, wanted to be comfortable throughout her wedding, so she found lace converse shoes and wore them all day. She also had two wedding dresses–her main gown and then a second dress she changed into for her reception. She looked fantastic in both, and the second one afforded her more mobility to dance!! Which, when you look at the photos, she had a blast!!

Arcade Ending

At the end of the night, Keeley and Eric “wound down” at an arcade night club. They played a few games as husband and wife and then danced the night away!
