Fantasy Friday ~ Destination New Orleans

I seriously can't think of a better place for a destination wedding than New Orleans. I mean, it's unique, it's fabulous and there's shit to do! Your guests will totally enjoy your wedding, but when they are not celebrating with you, they can actually experience all that The Big Easy has to offer. Seriously, your guests can walk down the street eating a po-boy and drinking a Sazerac all while listening to live music. Pretty cool if you ask me! Go Chileen and Aaron! Nice choice! 

Sooooo.... Aaron proposed with Chileen's great-grandmother’s ring on their 8 year anniversary in Maui. Not too shabby Aaron! How do you say "Will you marry me?" in Hawaiian? Well, it goes something like this, “e Mele ana ‘oe ia’u?”. But, why get married in New Orleans? Well, in 2008 Chileen and Aaron had vacationed there to celebrate Aaron’s 30th birthday, and they loved it! Actually, they loved it so much that when they got engaged they decided that their wedding HAD to be in NO!!! 

Love the orange flowers on the shoes, but I cannot stop gazing at her great-grandma's ring!!Unbelievable! Stunning wedding dress and insanely FAB bouquet!I love how the bridal party is watching in the background!I love all of the gold. You do too!Bling. Bling. Again, LOVE all of the gold sparkle!Awwwwww..... Aaron. I love how you are looking at Chileen!Yum... Lemon tarts! I have a serious obsession with mini lemon tarts... Incredibly romantic. And incredibly awesome!
