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!
