Hana and Ian’s wedding vows took place in a historic town filled with diverse cultures, beautiful architecture and divine cuisine! The couple chose the Race in Religion venue, which offers a taste of New Orleans history. The beautiful scenery and stunning courtyard effortlessly provided the perfect setting for their celebration.
A wedding in New Orleans isn’t complete without a second line; this is when people follow the band to enjoy live music. And in case you’re wondering, the first line is actually the band. The talented Kinfolk Brass Band led the second line!
As for the wedding flowers, the bride DIY’d her arrangements! She chose a simple, yet elegant color palette for her flowers and added pops of blue throughout her decor. From feather boas to metallic details, this wedding was absolutely stunning!
