Without ever having met Lisa and Nick before their wedding (with the exception of skype, of course) we knew that this New Orleans shin-dig would be one for the books.  Having recently moved to Boston from the west coast, they wanted their wedding to be a party for all of their out of town guests, and chose New Orleans as the (perfect!) central location.  Their ceremony and reception were held at the lovely Cafe Amelie on Royal Street in the French Quarter, making for an amazing Second Line Parade over to Frenchmen St. at the close of the evening.  Something about seeing this fun loving couple parading down the street with all their friends, parasols in hand and hankies in the air, with the streets blocked off  for only them that makes me want to get married all over again (to the same fella, of course) and have my own.

So, pop in some New Orleans Jazz and take a peek at Lisa and Nick’s wedding day.  And as they say in NOLA…”Laissez les bons temps rouler!”

Cafe Amelie, New Orleans Wedding

 

There’s something about Hawaii that is pure magic.  Aside from the breathtaking scenery, relaxing music, and the general hawaiian spirit, something about being on an island in the middle of the Pacific ocean makes it all feel a little more serene.  Dreamlike, almost.  For Mari and Kenji, I believe that feeling was even more tangible, since Hawaii is closer to the US mainland, where they both met while studying in the states.  (They both are from, and live in Japan…and planned this whole perfect wedding from Tokyo!) Marrying between the continental US and their home of Japan served as the perfect poetic setting, bringing together two distinct parts of their lives for such a special occasion.  They married in Honolulu, Hawaii at Lanikuhonua, which translates to “where heaven meets earth”  – an ocean cove, where the wind blew through the palm trees and the sun set over the water.  We couldn’t have asked for more, except possibly to not have to say goodbye. We cannot wait until our paths cross again, hopefully next time in Tokyo!!

Melissa and Ivan wed late 2011 with the company of family and friends at a family home in Miami, Florida. If anything is better than a backyard wedding, it’s when family travels from all over the world to partake in the celebration! Melissa and Ivan couldn’t be more perfect for each other with their contagious laughter and endless playfulness. It was an absolute honor to be a part of this wedding and join in the festivities.
