Who says that you have to travel all the way to The Big Easy to enjoy fabulous music, delicious cuisine, and a Mardi Gras party atmosphere? Danielle and Mike hosted their New Orleans-themed wedding reception in St. Augustine at The Treasury on The Plaza earlier this year. Life and Love Studio was there to capture the colorful celebration with breathtaking photos and a heart-touching video.
Danielle + Mike | Treasury on The Plaza Wedding Video:
“I want you to think of the absolute best moment in your life…Now, I want you to open your eyes. This is my moment.”
-Danielle’s father, John
After a beautiful ceremony at St. Augustine’s stunning Memorial Presbyterian Church the wedding party and guests celebrated with a traditional New Orleans second-line parade. Revelers were led by a brass band through the St. Augustine streets waving handkerchiefs and props all the way to The Treasury on The Plaza.
Wedding planner Karen Erwin of St. Augustine Weddings and Special Events worked together with florist Rachel Kasie to create over-the-top, glamorous reception decor that could rival any soiree in the French Quarter.
During the reception, guests were treated to a live painting by artist Ben Keys of Wed On Canvas. The mixture of art and entertainment was yet another way for Danielle and Mike to incorporate the culture of New Orleans into their wedding in a unique and unexpected way.
From the elegant decor, to the love of family and friends, and the incredible energy of the evening–Danielle and Mike’s wedding is one that we will not soon forget. Congratulations to the happy couple, and thank you for choosing The Treasury on The Plaza to host your New Orleans-themed wedding reception in St. Augustine!
