These Chicago teachers decided on a small destination wedding in New Orleans (one of their favorite places after vacationing there!). With Washington Square Park in Marginy as the backdrop, they incorporated their favorite things: animal masks, floral prints, pastel ribbons, M&Ms with cat faces printed on them(!), and 30 of their nearest and dearest. Then it was all about getting down in the French Quarter (with appearances by street mimes and Homer Simpson!). Elizabeth Ray Photography got to capture all the footless, Charleston-dancing, soccer-playing good times.

  1. I am so in love with her bouquet – where, oh where did this come from? Any clue? Did someone DIY (tutorial?) or get it somewhere? I love it so much!

  2. This wedding has such great details! And I absolutely declare my lurve for her headband. Does anyone know where it may be from?

  3. Hi! Head to toe, BHLDN. All other decor, including some not featured at the reception was all etsy too. Thanks for the sweet comments! Anna
