Rachel + Bret's New Orleans Wedding
Updated: Jul 15, 2021
When you own a candle company and you're getting married, you BRING THE HEAT! Everything was so gorgeous and perfect for Rachel & Bret's wedding at Felicity Church in New Orleans, and we were thrilled to LIGHT IT UP!
The candlelit ceremony was absolutely breathtaking. We had our 5' 10 arm modern candelabras, and clear cylinder trios lining the aisle. Then the altar was decked out with more candelabras, and our clear acrylic stands. The gorgeous greenery was icing on the cake to this beautiful venue! But the sweetest part was Rachel's son happy crying the entire time.
After the ceremony, we "flipped" the ceremony space into the reception space while the guests were downstairs at cocktail hour. We moved the candelabras on the tables, and the clear cylinders up against the stage in front of the band. We also added in more candles to the tables that were put out during the flip. This was THE most intense flip we've ever done because there was so much down the aisle/altar that we had to move, (and because we were in dress clothes because we were also attending the wedding) but our girl Rachel was totally worth it! Again, how sweet are the photos with her son!
Aside from the ridiculous amount of love these two have for one another and the amazing candlelight, it was the details that made this wedding! Rachel had The Gilded Artichoke make a hanging cheese board, which was amazing, and her cake had a terrarium inside! Their signature cocktails were inspired by their pups, and there was late night grilled cheeses!
