New Orleans is one of the great destination wedding cities. Where else are there so many options to have your wedding conveniently located and with so many attractions to enjoy? Unlike Las Vegas, one of the other major destination locations for weddings, New Orleans has a style and history that is more than just the flashing lights and big hotels. There are many small, and unique venues that weren’t just built to house conventions and parties. The Chickory is one of those old buildings, built well over a century ago, and has a character that won’t be found in most other cities. With it’s interior brick walls and old Cypress wooden floors, gas lamp styled lighting, you know you aren’t is a modern hotel or casino. As a photographer, one of the things I love about the Chickory is the lighting. The windows are huge and the light comes in them with softness to sculpt the fine interior details.

Tory and Adam didn’t have a lot of detailed plans for their wedding photos, other than when and where the pre-ceremony and wedding was. They did have some lovely touches to the decorations, but when it came time to plan their day, it was more about enjoying themselves rather than fussing over photos or getting any particular things done. This made for a very casual and relaxed time, and some fun photos of them just having a great time. Toward the end of the reception, I did ask them if they would like to go out on the balcony to get a few final photos with the city lights as a background. These nicely topped off the evening, making for a complete wedding day they will not soon forget I’m sure.
