Located just north of the French Quarter sits the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans, an area known for its colorful street murals, quirky boutiques, outdoor cafes, vibrant art scene, and eclectic vibe. Capulet, the perfect wedding venue for our inspired shoot, is located in the heart of the Bywater. In 2018, this 1800’s warehouse with 30-foot high pitched wood ceilings, exposed brick, a mezzanine area, and roof deck was restored for its current use as a restaurant and event space.
This is a story of a vivacious, bold couple from the West Coast that fell in love with New Orleans during their many vacations together to the city. The mixture of bright colors, geometric patterns, and mix metals brought life to the space and truly embodied the essence of the Bywater neighborhood.
The roof deck of the venue was used for their intimate ceremony. The multi-colored chairs, combined with the lanterns down the aisle, greenery adorned palette backdrop, and splashes of colored florals created a vibrant space for the couple to say their vows. For the ceremony, the bride flaunted her floral earrings and hoop bouquet, elements that brought a pop of color to the outdoor space.
The groom donned a custom-made Luca Falcone dark blue velvet tuxedo and custom made Luca Falcone loafer. He sported a pocket square boutonniere and Bronze Arrow Cufflinks by Reagan Charleston. The bride wore a sleek, modern, long sleeve Justin Alexander gown and a muted light pink lipstick for the ceremony. The bride wore a bright, bold pink lip as a statement during the reception.
