Libby and Richard, two of the most amazing people I’ve had the pleasure to meet, photographing their wedding was an emotional and blissful, all at once. When Libby and I talked for the first time on a video call, what was meant to be a quick chat, turned into an hour of sharing stories, her vision for her wedding and our love for New Orleans. As Libby put it, she had been in search of a photographer to document her wedding, however she hadn’t found a style that really resonated with her until the talented ladies of My House Social sent her in our direction, which was a huge compliment for us, and that’s how this story began.
Come wedding day, the emotion was high, tears began in getting ready and continued throughout the entire celebration. Libby had a vision for her wedding, from every detail to her custom-made pink wedding dress, which was a complete stunner, it was perfection, an absolutely amazing day and so full of love. I found myself feeling emotional watching these lover together, Libby and Richard are deeply connected, they hold one another tight and the world stops, their love is palpable.
Family and friends from all walks of life joined this beautiful pair, many of whom we connected with – even speaking Spanish with guests, reminiscing about travel and chatting about life. Their adorable (and wildly talented speech deliverer) son, Richie, stole my heart from the moment he”dropped the mic” with style at their rehearsal dinner. There was so much love present, an immense amount of laughter and high doses of pure joy accompanied by a wild dance party, which was followed by a lovely second line parade through they city streets. We felt the love strong and it was phenomenal to be part of their wedding. Here are some of my favorite moments from their New Orleans celebration!
