elizabth & christian had their wedding at the hotel del. their ceremony was in the garden courtyard, , and then we moved over to the garden room for the reception. the weather was beautiful, and the del was still beautifully decorated from christmas. this was such a fun wedding for us to do, and the group was all from new orleans. it was a real wake up call to hear that over half of the guests had lost their homes to hurricane katrina. what impressed me most was that even though the couple had lost their home as well, the entire group partied and celebrated as if they did not have a care in the world. it was one of the happiest weddings i have ever done- people really lived it up! the night ended with a "second line" traditional new orleans dance that lasted well into the night. thanks christian & elizabeth for letting me in on such a fun day!!
