The Monastery, New Orleans Lance Nicoll

While the bride was visiting New Orleans to search for a venue, she fell in love with The Monastery. With an abandoned church and massive property, it was filled with rich, historic details - perfect for a courtyard ceremony, an al fresco cocktail hour under queen palms, and a raucous reception in the atrium of the church. We capped off the night with a traditional second-line parade through the French Quarter!
