New Orleans is the perfect city for a totally unique wedding full of personality, and that’s exactly what Maggie and Casey had in mind when they set about planning their March wedding.

Growing up I would ask my friend Sam for art on a regular basis, so she was not surprised when the call came for one more original piece. She hand painted a gouache invitation and RSVP that was totally us!

I knew I wanted mermaid cut and not strapless, so I flipped through some pictures and designed a combination of some of my favorite dresses. Last November I flew to China to visit my sister and found the perfect fabrics and tailor to make my dress. One set of measurements and 2 weeks later my dress was ready for the big day! For the bridesmaids, my sister designed dresses for all 10 women. The only input I had was that I wanted them to be different dresses in a soft antique color palette.

My dad bought seasonal flowers and helped each bridesmaid assemble a bouquet. He made mine too – long stem white roses.

We incorporated a couple New Orleans traditions, such as the bridal cake pull and a second line. For the cake pull, all 10 bridesmaids grabbed a ribbon that was baked into the bottom layer of the wedding cake. At the same time they all pulled to see what silver charm was attached, representing money, love, babies, happiness, etc. The second line was a favorite part of the reception for all of our guests. It’s really just a chance to parade around waving white handkerchiefs and parasols.

Venue: Elms Mansion in New Orleans

Invitations: Samantha Lewis, friend of the bride

Bridesmaid dresses: Kate McFarlin, sister of the bride

Flowers: father of the bride

Music: Kermit Ruffins

Photography: Jenny Grise

Congratulations Maggie and Casey! As they say in New Orleans, and as your wedding invitation says, Laissez les bon temps roulez!

Happy weekend to all of you, and Happy Birthday to my little sister! She is my best friend in the world, and I wish we were closer together and could see each other more often. She also makes the best eclairs and scones I’ve ever had (which is only part of why I wish we lived closer). So on that delicious note, I’ll leave you all with this pic of donuts and birthday candles, and some fun links for your weekend.

Itsy bitsy beautiful pottery.

Adorable couple (the puppy’s pretty cute, too).

Glass sausages? via paper tastebuds

Love these mom snapshots.

Cutest cheat sheet ever (and helpful if you’re like me and can never remember what to buy organic).

Will someone please get married in a hat like this?

Dapper paper.

Instead of a farewell brunch, how about breakfast in bed?

Excited for Sweet Paul‘s magazine!

If Monet had a business card.

One last thing before I head out for the weekend. Unfortunately, because of some exceptionally rude comments recently, I’ve decided to disallow anonymous comments for right now. Everyone is certainly entitled to having their own opinions, but I’m afraid there’s no room on Snippet & Ink for comments that are hurtful or otherwise rude to people who have kindly shared their weddings with us, and allowing anonymous comments seems to inspire more bad manners than when folks are required to sign their names. Thankfully, it’s a small minority, and in case I don’t say it enough, thanks so much to all of you who are always so thoughtful. Have a happy happy weekend, lovelies!
