Bridgette and Saul’s Pharmacy Museum wedding reception and Preservation Hall ceremony was most definitely one for the books. I’ll never forget when the London-based couple first called me to be their wedding planner. The two knew they wanted to have their ceremony at Preservation Hall but beyond that, they really had just three other big requests for their wedding: they wanted a barbecue, they wanted mix-and-matched place settings and they wanted their reception in an iconic courtyard here in New Orleans.
Because this was an overseas destination wedding for them and they had very busy schedules, we planned the entire wedding weekend from afar. We met one another in person the Monday before their wedding and it was like we had known each other for forever!
Oh and as for their three big requests? We absolutely made that happen. Little Bushel Catering Co. did an amazing job on the barbecue wedding reception dinner. My team and I hand-picked out all of the silverware and place settings to give it that perfectly mismatched, yet elegant tabletop style. And the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum wedding venue–with its iconic French Quarters courtyard–was the picture perfect place for their reception. Take a look at all of the jaw-dropping photos photographed by Mo Davis and Nancy Ebert below…
Gorgeous right? I just loved how it all came together! I could go on and on about the incredible partners we worked with to pull it all together. (See them below!) After their intimate, elegant Pharmacy Museum wedding, Bridgette and Saul’s wedding was featured in Vogue, which allowed us to re-live the day all over again!
From their feature in Vogue Weddings: “When we were dancing in the rain towards the end of the night, I remember closing my eyes and just feeling pure elation,” Saul says. “My favorite person, in my favorite place to the soundtrack of some of my favorite music—surrounded by so much love. I wanted to dance forever.”
