Claire & Patrick’s whimsical New Orleans wedding was perfectly magical, and it was such an honor to capture this fun celebration! Originally from the East Coast, Claire first fell in love with New Orleans visiting her grandparents who lived in the city, and later when she attended Tulane University in the heart of the city. Elle Ellinghaus brought Claire’s beautiful garden inspiration to life with their French Quarter ceremony at the St Louis Cathedral, second line, and reception hosted at the Odgen Museum of Southern Art.
“How did you fall in love with New Orleans? At once, madly. Looking back, sometimes I think it was predestined.” –Andrei Codrescu.
