My artist/writer/creative/PR friend Jesse Hendrix-Inman was a blushing bride this past spring and she had such a unique and memorable wedding that I just have to share it. All of her planning ideas exemplified who she is as a person, artsy and fun-- and where she loves to be, New Orleans!
Guests received mardi gras beads as they walked out of the church and cool mint juleps as they entered the reception. The decor was red and festive with beads and masks placed throughout. Mediterra Catering cooked up some bayou classics like gumbo, cajun catfish bites, roast beef po-boys (OMG so friggin' good) and crawfish bread! The cake was a decadent chocolate raspberry party in your mouth.
Everyone got down to the tunes of the River City Dixieland Jazz Band, and they even got in on the action! The newlyweds were even treated to an impromptu acoustic performance of, you're reading it right, "Jesse's Girl" by the bride's sister Britt and her fiance, Jeff, who are both in a band in Nashville.
This wedding was the antithesis of a stuffy, traditional affair; it was laid-back, intimate and truly a New Orleans fantasy! Congrats lady!

As for F&B, Stephen Duvall created a beautiful dessert tower with everything in the color scheme of the night (red, blue, yellow, green), as well as other stations with light hors d'oeuvres. The drinks were festive with glow-cubes, and other details included jars and vases filled with candy for party-goers to rifle through.
All in all it was a FANTASTIC event, and just give you an idea of how Dem donkeys party... it started at 9:30pm on a Monday night and the clean up crew didn't leave until 5 the next morning, I wonder if Obama Girl was there!

Me and my friend Jesse (a girl by design) at the Upper Deck, just warming up suckas!
ANYWAY, last Wednesday we went to see Electric Company, a dj (deejay)/drummer/b-boy/costume-change kind of show at Trio that was very entertaining and just as interactive. The photo I took below is pretty crazy, but that's just how Electric Company rolls...

I highly recommend booking them if you want to PARTY! Electric Company can be hooked up through Other Brother Entertainment and they definitely get the party started and keep it going, it's sort of in the contract. Holla!

Alia Designs sprung from the creativity of 2 sisters, and the website says this about the idea behind the hand made keepsakes: "Drawing inspiration from history, the pair discovered that some of the first invitations were sent out by Maharajas and Kings and were hand calligraphed on fine silk. They were also often adorned with jewels to express the permanence and richness of love and to show the host’s adoration for each guest by sending such a lavish gift. This inspiration, combined with the pair’s passion for fine fabrics, embroideries and eye for design, spurred the making of Alia Designs. "

This is going to be a long one today, ya'll. Thursday, August 2, the Gibbes courtyard was transformed into a mid-century mod creation by the minds at PDA and Stephen Duvall Catering & Events (herein referred to as SD for length purposes). They combined their forces to thank their loyal clients with a blowout and blog-worthy event.
There I am attempting to capture the spirit, like a cheerleader.
