Although it's probably tempting to be in New Orleans for Mardi Gras, it's a hectic time to tie the knot. Parades overtake the city for months, causing disruptions to traffic, booked. up hotels, and more. The magical time to come to New Orleans is truly in November and December when it's still quite warm during the day and into the night.

Let's chat all things New Orleans weddings and what I have learned as a New Orleans photographer. New Orleans is not just a drinking capital, but a fine art capital and filled with historic buildings on oak tree-lined. streets. Whether you're hoping for a destination wedding in New Orleans, or an epic proposal, let's dish some of our favorite tips and tricks.

French Quarter wedding chapel is one of the more popular wedding ceremony locations for destination weddings and elopements in New Orleans. Open year-round, 24/7, just like the city, Reverend Tony is always willing to marry two people madly in love.

Some of the most iconic photos from New Orleans weddings happen in Jackson Square. Overlooking the French Quarter, Jackson Square is a stunning outdoor wedding and ceremony reception option.

The Botanical Gardens is an amazing spot to get married in New Orleans. A little different from the shotgun houses and deconsecrated churches, the Botanical Gardens is an amazing way to show off a little more of what New Orleans has to offer.
