Shyanne & Bernie – June 6, 2015
Wedding & Reception – the Balcony Ballroom, Metairie, LA
Photography by – Robert Welch & Lisa Welch
One of the larger wedding and reception venues in Metairie, the Balcony Ballroom is a wonderful place to have a reception or ceremony and reception for most any size group. The facility is frequently updated with the revolving cake table being a recent addition, and has a layout that makes the logistics of the wedding day easy to get through. We’ve photographed there for well over a decade, and it’s always been a fabulous location.
Shyanne and Bernie took full advantage of what the Balcony has to offer, and their wedding was fun and easy. They have a large family on both sides, so there were plenty of people to celebrate with. Shyanne got dressed upstairs in the bride’s prep room, and Bernie was downstairs for his pre-ceremony photos with his groomsmen. After the ceremony, the upstairs area makes for easy photos. They decided to dance downstairs rather than up on the balcony, which is nice as they are able to be closer to their guests and family for this special dance, followed by the parent dances of course. That was just the beginning of the fun they had, which carried on in the afternoon until a 2nd line band arrived to finish off the day. The wedding followed the typical traditions of a nice New Orleans wedding, which means the focus was on having lot’s of fun, fun and more fun!
