Meet Susanna & Scott

From the moment I began working with Susanna and Scott, the bond was there. Over the course of the wedding planning and design process these two lovely people became my family.

But it wasn’t just the shared experience of preparing for a wedding that brought us so close. You see, we had something else in common – something many New Orleanians experienced along with us; we were going through a hurricane together.

As luck would have it, Hurricane Isaac just happened to fall on Susanna’s and Scott’s wedding weekend! Rather than reschedule or relocate the nuptials, we decided to forge ahead and make this the best “hurricane wedding” New Orleans had ever seen.

Fortunately for us, the venue and caterer both had electricity. And once we had these most important parts of the ceremony and reception taken care of, everything else came together nicely.

The wedding was absolutely enchanting and so unbelievably beautiful. (A big thank you to Meade Wenzel for scanning the city looking for flowers!) Susanna and Scott were blown away. It was more than they could have imagined.

Please do take a look at these beautiful pictures to see the magic for yourself! I have also included the beautiful, heartfelt thank you letter that Susanna sent me after the wedding. It is such a joy to work with such lovely and in-love couples as Susanna and Scott.
