Intimate French Quarter wedding

A beautiful couple, an officiant (Rev. Donald Bohn), and a photographer. No bridesmaids, groomsmen or guests. This has to be one of my top ten favorite weddings because the bride and groom were so positive
and fun!
After the wedding ceremony, we walked the French Quarter and enjoyed the sights and sounds, the musicians playing jazz, the entertainers working for tips, the hustle and hurry getting ready for the night crowd of drunken debauchery...

My favorite shot of the day, I admit was the brides idea. I just said go for it!! I just wish I had a few tin cans to drag behind the cart with a sign "Just Married" ...

The Napoleon House, a perfect place for a drink and a toast to the newlyweds. A historic building with great atmosphere and a terrific staff that allowed me to take a few photos of the bride and groom at the bar. (Thanks guys!)
The bride also wrote on the graffitti wall; she drew a heart and arrow with their names in the middle.

This impersonator was great, not the greatest, but great. He had the facial expressions and the look of Cassius Clay. A nice guy who I have seen many times in the Quarter since that first encounter.

As always, I appreciate being a part of the bride and grooms special day. This is what makes my job so much fun!
