This rainy French Quarter Elopement is so inspirational for anyone thinking of whisking their closest friends down to the land of festivals and historic architecture for an intimate wedding. Dylan and Eric flew in with a handful of their nearest and dearest for a New Orleans elopement. They kept everything so hush hush, only the friends that came with them knew about their wedding! Stylish grooms take note, Dylan’s plaid suit here is such a phenomenal example of making a wedding style your own. Isn’t it fantastic?
For their wedding at the Melrose Mansion, everyone gathered together on the porch to keep dry as Dylan and Eric shared their vows. The French Quarter never feels more romantic than during a rain shower, it felt just perfect for their day. Dylan and Eric’s heartfelt words moved all of their friends to tears and I found myself crying right along with them. The love under the eaves was so palpable, it completely enveloped us when Dylan and Eric shared their first kiss as a married couple and everyone was swept away in a whirlwind of emotion.Immediately after being pronounced husband and husband, the couple popped a bottle of champagne and glasses were magically produced to get the celebration started. As we made our way to Cane + Table, we paused to snap portraits of Dylan and Eric, street style. Can’t you just feel the happy emotions radiating through these images? Once we arrived at Cane + Table, drinks kept pouring and everyone enjoyed their famous chicken sandwiches while happily toasting to the new couple.
After the festivities wrapped, Dylan and Eric sent this photo gallery to their friends and family as a surprise wedding announcement. I’m sure this rainy French Quarter elopement brightened their day as much as it brightened mine, don’t you think?
P.S. Check out another elopement here, this couple brought along a few friends, too!
