Lauren and Philip got married on Little New Year’s Eve in New Orleans. The day was incredible, highlighted by one of the most amazing finishes to a wedding I have ever experienced.
For those unfamiliar with NOLA culture, its customary to do a “second line” at wedding receptions. Here’s the basic concept. A brass band plays and marches around (they would be the primary line) like in a parade. The guests (the second line) then follow said band while dancing and singing. The guest typically wave hankies while the bride and groom spin parasols. I’ve photographed second lines in the past but they have all taken place in and around the reception hall. Lauren and Philip, on the other hand, had a police escorted second line down Bourbon Street. Keep in mind this was the day before New Year’s Eve and the French Quarter was packed! The experience will go down as one of my top 5 wedding moments of all time. Truly amazing.
