NEW ORLEANS WEDDING IN NOVEMBER

November, 2012 in New Orleans

"We had an awesome wedding in NOLA for about 80ppl. Wedding mapper was a huge help to friends and family. I could not have asked for a more perfect day and all my vendors were great. Even though I have made some comments that may seem negative regarding their services, I would still highly recommend all of them. They were all easy to work with and professional in their services."

Ceremony: Irish Cultural Museum
Reception: Muriel's Jackson Square

Band:

Dr. Jazz and the New Orleans Sounds

Jackson, MS, USA

"AWESOME vendor! If you are looking for that classic big band / Dixieland Jazz band this is who you need to hire. Dr. Steele (aka Dr. Jazz) is a pleasure to work with and the rates for his services can not be beat! We could not have been more pleased with his services. We hired 2 of his musicians for our ceremony, more musicians for our 2nd Line parade and his whole band with male and female vocals for our reception."

Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Pure Cake

5035 Freret Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

"Our wedding cake was super yummy - Vanilla cake with Salted Carmel filling! Danielle was a pleasure to work with, even when I had to downsize my cake from 100 to 80ppl. My only negative was I wish my design on the cake was all over the cake (front and back) which I had noted on my signed contract, however when I saw the cake on my wedding day, the decoration was just on the front side. No one else noticed this but me, but it was a let down."

Coordinator:

Sapphire Events NOLA

New Orleans, LA, USA

"Valerie is great - I hired her to assist me with full service planning of my wedding. From finding me vendors to taking care of the day of details she did it. My biggest hang up was her response time on e-mail correspondence, which I should have addressed in the beginning. Bad on me. However she was worth her weight in gold in organizing all the vendors and details the day of. I can truly say I had a perfect wedding and did not have to worry about a thing! I had so many people comment on how calm and relaxed I was my wedding weekend. I attribute it to the fact I hired a true professional."

Florist:

Bee&#x27;s Wedding & Event Floral Design

738 Phosphor Avenue
Metairie, LA, United States

"Eric at Bee's was easy to work with and I was provided a very detailed proposal/contract with the flowers I specifically asked for. When we got closer to the wedding, a specific flower was not going to be available so I was informed of another option that would compliment what I had originally wanted and it worked out great. My bouquet and ceremony flowers were fantastic. The reception centerpieces were nice but I did not feel the 3 designs we had discussed were executed as described on the contract. My biggest disappointment was the men's boutonnieres. They barely made it through the ceremony without looking wilted and their design was quite basic compared to the pictures I had shown of what I was looking for."

Invitations Vendor:

D.H Fitzgerald designs - Invitations Vendor - Atlanta, Georgia, 30350

Atlanta, Georgia 30350

"Great vendor on Etsy - they helped me custom design my wedding suite. They created a beautiful invitation utilizing the lace design from my great grandmother's wedding veil. They were reasonably priced and provided prompt service."

Lighting Vendor:

Luminous Events

"Awesome vendor for decor lighting! Lighting truly makes a difference if you have an evening event. Lisa and her team have all sorts of lighting options to make a really unique impact on your ceremony or reception (or Both!) Additionally, I could not have open flame in my reception location so she used the battery operated flicker lights. Everything looked stunning in the gold mercury glass I had rented from her."

Photographer:

Arte de Vie

"Doug & Titus shot our wedding, they were great! I just wish we had more time for more pictures. After viewing my final pictures I realized how I wished I had additional pictures taken of certain things, friends and family. Leading up to our wedding Doug sends a few different e-mails with great information to help plan my day and honeymoon! Now in the process of creating my album so we are still working with him."

Wedding Day Beauty Vendor:

Kiss and Make-up Beauty Services

"Awesome ladies to work with! My makeup was flawless and lasted the whole entire day. My up-do was perfect based on a picture I gave them. They also did my matron of honor and my mother's make-up and they all looked great. They provide on-site services so having them in my suite to get ready was so nice."

"Location is great, venue space is lovely (old time, historic period decor,) good wait staff service and good food. Wished my catering manager was a bit more knowledgeable in food and flexible with ideas I had to change a few things up. I can get picky here since I work in the meeting planning/catering business. But when my guests raved about the food and service, I really can't complain since they are the ones I want to ensure had a great time!"

Hotel:

International House Hotel - Hotel - 221 Camp Street, New Orleans, LA, United States

International House Hotel

221 Camp Street
New Orleans, LA 70130, United States

"Lovely boutique hotel, however the hotel was not completely "fixed" at the end of November from the hurricane damage in early September. No phone service with in-room phones which really does make a difference when you have many friends and family staying in one place and not everyone may have each others cell phone numbers. Early morning construction noise, non-friendly staff when asking questions about options for in room food and beverage. Lack of room service and in-room safes turned out to be details we wished the hotel had."

Attraction:

Jackson Square - Attraction - Chartres St & St Peter St, New Orleans, LA, United States

Jackson Square

New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

""The French Quarter’s heart and soul is a must-see, boasting a statue of Andrew Jackson at its center and a ragtag collection of artists and fortune-tellers fringing its perimeter. It’s flanked by the filligreed Pontalba apartments, site of the Streetcar-Named-Desire-inspired “Stella!” shouting contest held during the annual Tennessee Williams Festival. At the Square’s crown are three 18th-century architectural glories: the Cabildo, a former city hall where the Louisiana Purchase was signed; St. Louis Cathedral; and the Presbytère. The onetime courthouse is now the flagship of the Louisiana State Museum.""

""As the mother church of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, St. Louis Cathedral has a long and interesting history. It is the oldest continuously active Roman Catholic Cathedral in the United States, originally built in 1727 and dedicated to King Louis IX of France, “The Crusading King” who was later canonized by the Church. The original St. Louis Cathedral burned during the great fire of 1794 and was rebuilt. The present structure was completed in the 1850s.""

The St. Charles Streetcar Line

""The best tour in New Orleans is only $1.25—the price of an adult fare on the city’s two major streetcar lines. (The shorter Riverfront line takes passengers along the river to the Quarter’s French Market.) The green cars of the St. Charles line head Uptown, trundling along that avenue’s “neutral ground,” the name for the landscaped medians that divide the traffic on the city’s grandest streets. Red cars on the Canal Street line terminate at historic cemeteries like Metairie Cemetery or City Park, where the New Orleans Museum of Art celebrated its 100th birthday in 2011.""

Accessible from downtown via the St. Charles line streetcar, the Garden District is made for exploring. Take time to tour Lafayette Cemetery #1, quite possibly the most photogenic necropolis on the planet. Then make a reservation to dine at local favorite Commander’s Palace, the famous Brenna Family Restaurant located across the street from the tombs.""

Today, the restored historic home museum, appearing much as it did in the 19th-Century, serves as a catalyst for exploring the past. From the original owners of this magnificent home to the enslaved workers who lived on the property, to the tradesmen and free people of color who conducted business with the house, the museum offers a complete picture of the diverse lifestyles that converged in New Orleans during the 1800s.""

Museum:

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art

925 Camp Street
New Orleans, LA, United States

""The Ogden Museum of Southern Art and its collections of paintings, photography, and ceramics from below the Mason-Dixon Line is located in the city’s Warehouse District. The art neighborhood is a brisk stroll or short cab ride from the Quarter. Go late on a Thursday for the chance to enjoy Ogden After Hours, when local musicians play while patrons dance, drink, and mingle in the galleries. It’s the best regularly scheduled cocktail party in town. Afterward consider nearby Cochon or a Mano for dinner. The two highly regarded restaurants are walking distance from the museum.""
