Glam and sparkle at Race & Religious in New Orleans

Since filming our first wedding in New Orleans at possibly the most perfect venue (Race & Religious), we’ve been lucky to reconnect with this brilliant city and its friendly folks a few more times. Whoever’s making this happen in the universe, please don’t ever stop the good vibes, especially if they happen to involve humans with a penchant for sparkle, outrageous costumes, and mega dance parties like our good friends, Emily and Brian here who couldn’t dream up a better wedding in New Orleans.

Crossing the Atlantic from London, these two charismatic souls decided to host their two-day wedding in the most perfect party city, suitcases packed with glittering garments and ready for the goodness to come:









Being escorted by the police during your second line down the always raucous Bourbon Street. Pre-party pool times to cool off in the 30C heat of NOLA. The sweetest first look complete with a twirl. Surrounded by sequined bunting, paper fans, and floral dresses while the crowd cheers you on at Race & Religious. Doing our work for us while filming your best friend on the vintage goodness that is Super 8mm film. Lighting up the second half of an already epic night with a sparkly outfit change Mardi Gras style: beads, vests, wigs, crowns, eyeshadow. Anything that could be glammed up was thanks to you and your incredible friends/family. And as per usual: delicious cuts of Super 8mm film.

Cheers, ya glorious party animals. We’ll never forget what it means to celebrate in the Hersholt way.
