“Paris of the South”
New Orleans’ traditions, venues and settings simply set it apart for destination weddings. The Big Easy is one of the world’s most romantic spots to say “I do” dating back to the 18th century. Welcome to New Orleans…where the motto of “Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler” (Let the Good Times Roll) sums up the celebratory atmosphere of the city while paying tribute to its French heritage. The Crescent City’s European and Caribbean influences date back more than 300 years and can be felt, seen, heard and tasted in its music, architecture and cuisines. The city by the river has captured the hearts and imaginations of Americans since before it was even part of the American colonies. A long-time enclave of sophistication and glamour that draws visitors from all parts of the world. The city has always been different from its neighbors to the north and the south. Attribute those differences to the city’s rich Creole and Cajun heritages, the African slaves who brought us Voodoo, the European Catholics who introduced Mardi Gras in all its glory, or the very air itself, you will find a one-of-a-kind experience in New Orleans.
