Emily tells us a bit additional: We’re every in our mid-40s, getting married for the first time, and had the vanity to know what was essential to us and what we might dispense with.

We would have liked the meals to be banging, our outfits to make us actually really feel specific, and our households to be involved. We would have liked to hold our life in New Orleans together with our households who hail from reverse coasts and would seemingly not at all meet if not for this event. Our households acquired to hold round, put faces to names, and get stuffed silly with hen and gumbo. We ate do-it-yourself cake and cupcakes, and a minimal of three of us fell into the bayou. It was day. Really, a super day.
