Taryn and Troy were married at Royal Sonesta Hotel New Orleans in New Orleans, La. on October 12. “The inspiration for my wedding really just came from my love of shiny things!” Taryn said. “A lot of our guests traveled from near and far for the wedding, so we wanted to make sure they got the true New Orleans experience. Seven months later, we are still hearing guests say how much they loved NOLA and how they plan to go back. I think having the wedding located in a centralized location like Bourbon Street was key.” The bride wore a sweetheart ball gown with a floral applique bodice, accessorized with a hair half-up/half-down in loose curls, while the groom wore a a two-tone dark gray and black suit, accessorized with a solid tie. Bridesmaids wore long silk purple one-shoulder dresses and carried bouquets of roses, ranunculuses, and pincushions. The candlelit ceremony took place inside the ballroom with 175 of their closest family and friends. Fun fact: Troy’s uncle officiated! “The best thing I did was requesting to see my reception room before the doors were opened to guests,” she said. “I had such a vision in my head of what I wanted to be that I wanted to soak it in before it was touched by anyone. Let me tell you, my breathe was literally taken away! The doors opened and as I stood there . . . I couldn’t believe it was all right in front of me.” Reception tables were decorated with sequin linens, tall centerpieces, street names, and ghost chairs. “I thought my heart was going to be dead set on my favorite bakery in New Orleans, but to my surprise the hotel did a far better job of the presentation and flavor of the cake!” Taryn said. At the end of the night, the newlyweds enjoyed a Second Line parade complete with a brass band and parasols. See the full board here.
