Modern Meets Vintage Il Mercato Wedding
We love a good Il Mercato wedding, and Caitlin and Chase's event is no exception! We have worked at this New Orleans wedding venue quite a bit over the years, and when Caitlin selected the space for her ceremony and reception, she asked us to design the space in a completely different way than it has ever been used before. We love thinking outside the box, and we used this opportunity to have a courtyard ceremony with a super long aisle down the length of the space, instead of opting for the expected fireplace vignette as the ceremony backdrop. We had a custom altar built and hand-painted with tropical, feminine motif inspired by the beautifully designed deGournay interiors the bride loves. Personal touches throughout the night had signature his and hers cocktail stations, neon signage with the couple's favorite Biggie Smalls lyrics, and an on-stage cameo from the infamous 610 Stompers at the reception.
