i'm so excited to share these images with you from katie + john's beautiful new orleans wedding! katie is matt's ( my fiancée! ) cousin and one of the most creative people i know. she thought of every detail to make this day picture perfect. every moment was filled with smiles from the heartfelt ceremony to the lively second line parade down the streets of the french quarter. not only is this couple special to me because they are about to be my family, they are also special because a few weeks before the wedding katie was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. she received her diagnosis after losing both her vision and ability to walk. after a temporary treatment she was ready to head to new orleans for her wedding. she's on the mend now with occasional flare ups and already fighting back to help find a cure. katie started a campaign through a company called i heart garments where $8 of every shirt sold that she designed goes to MS research. you can read her whole story and help raise funds for MS research here at i heart garments.
ceremony: hermann grima house
reception: cafe amelie
centerpieces: thalia and dahlia
