It was early November, 75 degrees, and not a cloud in sight. The chairs were placed perfectly and the chandeliers were hanging from the oaks as if an extension of the moss covered limbs. As the candles were lit, and the petals floated down the aisle, it all began to sink in. Lauren and Stephen were getting married. In a matter of moments, she would walk arm-in-arm with her father, and I would be fighting back the the great flood that was my tears.

She was beautiful. It was beautiful. Hints of green, cobalt blue, and Southern Proper magnolia ties excited any love-loving guest and the reception wasn't one to disappoint. Walking through the great wooden doors of Chesterton Square, attendees were greeted with a colorful candy bar, an amazing groom's cake, heart-melting hydrangea centerpieces, and the best New Orleans dishes begging for your immediate consumption (of which I obliged).

The night ended with lots of dancing, lots of laughs, lots of cake, and a few cocktails (you pick the white lie on that list). Lauren and Stephen were showered with hundreds of white petals as they hopped in a Rolls Royce and departed to the beginning of their new life. Now enough of my mushy recollection...it's time for you to experience this wedding yourself. Go ahead, scroll on.
