If you have the chance to dance in the streets with a second line parade on your wedding day, we say do it! It's a block party in motion and the festivity of it all must be nothing short of unforgettable fun. Take this unique wedding day in New Orleans of Amy and Mike's held in the courtyard of the Il Mercato. It was so charming it even inspired Arte De Vie to move away from digital and embrace shooting on film to capture the magic. Sapphire Events set the scene transforming the historic estate into an intimate space packed with details. Wearing a full lace with blush lining Watters gown with her bridesmaids in Alfred Sung from The Dessy Group, Amy's bridal style established the romantic tone found throughout her enchanting nuptial exchange.

Unique Wedding Day in New Orleans

This beautiful couple, who obviously knows how to have fun, also has great fashion sense. The chic couple opted for a more traditional look with Mike in a classic black tie tuxedo. They began their day at the Le Pavillion Hotel with their respective bridal party members getting ready for one epic celebration. Rather than opting for luxury transportation, they chose to start things right with a straight up party bus. Yes, even the parents and grandparents were part of the merrymaking where music was thumping as they arrived at the Il Mercato. The ceremony boasted superb use of this year's color, Greenery. Twisted vinery was literally climbing over the chuppah and dotted with blush and cream hued roses created by Kim Starr Wise Floral Events. Edison lights strung over the courtyard gave it that oh-so al fresco enchanting mood, blended with hundreds of pillar candles scattered throughout. As soon as the "I Do's" were exchanged, the Kinfolk Brass Band struck up their jazzy sounds leading Amy and Mike, along with their guests, on a second line parade throughout the neighborhood. This group certainly makes us smile just pouring over Arte De Vie's images. With all of this preceding the reception, one could only bet that the reception did not disappoint. This unique wedding day in New Orleans and all the outpouring of love certainly captures our hearts!
