New Orleans Wedding – Marisa and Phil

So this New Orleans wedding’s post is a long one and there’s good reason for that. But before we can even start with time and length and how awesome this was I need to first talk about Marisa. Full disclosure here, this is Jamie typing this post. I’m not the best at it and I’m going to have to go back and recheck my spelling on almost every word I type. But so what, it’s my website and I can do what I want. Marisa has Tourette’s, and like Marisa I too have Tourette’s. It’s extremely rare that I get to meet someone else who has it, much less shoot their wedding. Growing up with Tourette’s is hard and I’m scared to death that one day one of my daughter’s might start to show signs of Tourette’s. I’m a boy and my way of dealing with the kids who teased and ridiculed me was fighting. Always fighting. I can only imagine how hard it would be for a little girl to deal with those same set of circumstances. But here’s the thing. Marisa is so full of positivity that she just radiates this incredibly infectious energy that I saw affect everyone around her. Seeing her with this totally cool guy holding her and loving her, meant a lot to me and the fears that I have for my own children. Before we left for the night, her and I talked and I’m not gonna lie, I got teary eyed talking about our childhood and concerns we both have for our kids. Marisa and I connected and I freaking love her! So I had to get that off my chest. This wedding for me was more than the normal wedding because of person she is. And like I said earlier, it’s my website and I can do what I want.

Now I can talk about her wedding! 14 hours. This was a 14 hour wedding. That’s a whole lotta wedding. The whole wedding took place at the Ritz on Canal street in Downtown New Orleans. Dyle Films was there with us making sure Marisa and Phil we’re covered from every angle. Bella Blooms did all of the floral and candle arrangements, just wait till you scroll down and see how incredible of a job Dee and her team did. Raizk Design was also there and their team did such a phenomenal job planning this wedding. And we can’t forget about Preaux Face for making all the girls look so fancy! So two things about this wedding that were beyond awesome was the Badeken and the Hora. Phil and all his guys danced all the way through the Ritz clapping and yelling, Phil in the middle while everyone circled around him. Insane is what it was!! Then the Hora. Their Hora lasted 40 minutes! Let that sink in… Most horas we shoot are maybe 10 minutes. This was almost an hour of high energy dancing and singing. But for every moment of excitement was an equal a moment of tenderness and softness. The real reason for the celebration was never once lost in translation, and seeing these weddings every weekend, I can’t tell you enough how important that is.

Phil and Marisa, we love y’all. We wish the two of you a lifetime of happiness, joy, and love! Thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day and allowing us to tell your story. And Marisa, I just have to tell you one more time how much you rock!
