Nicholas + Jaime | New Orleans Scared Heart Ceremony and Chateau Country Club Reception

Where was your ceremony held and why did you pick this site?
My ceremony was at Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans, Louisiana. I went to school there when I was a little girl and was in love with the chapel ever since. I knew my wedding was going to be at this church in New Orleans.

Where was your Reception held and why did you pick this site?
My reception was at Chateau Golf and Country Club in Kenner, Louisiana. I picked Chateau Country Club because the price was very awesome for what you get and we knew everyone would take good care of us. We weren’t let down. 

What was your favorite part of the day?
I don’t have a favorite. Every part of the day was a blast.

When you first saw the groom, what were you thinking/feeling?
I  was so nervous. However, I felt like my fake eyelashes were going to get caught on my blusher. I did love seeing him smile ear to ear and I couldn’t stop smiling myself.

We asked Nicholas what he was feeling when he first saw Jaime walk down the aisle.
“I was excited and thought she looked gorgeous.”  We agree, she looked amazing!

We want to hear YOUR advice for future brides.
I would say, at the reception, make a big speech at the beginning and enjoy yourself. I felt I got to spend the 3 hours of the reception dancing and hanging with my friends. We didn’t go around telling everyone hi because we wanted to experience every second. Best advice I could give.

Anything else you want to say?
Best photographer is studio tran! I loved working with Corine and she knew exactly what she was doing. Weddings are a lot of work but at the end, it’s an awesome feeling!

What was the inspiration behind your wedding gown?
My mother wanted me to go to Yvonne Lefleur so I looked there and fell in love. I also knew I wanted a long train and I love the elegant, classic look.

What unique or special things did you do at the reception? 
We had a live painting, had every person at the reception who was a veteran to come up and take a photo and we also sang a song. Definitely so much fun.

Who was your baker, what was the flavor of your cake? Was it delicious?!
I used Pure Cake. Cake was delicious. I had the traditional wedding cake. The grooms cake was chocolate with cookies and cream filling. Both were delicious
