From start to finish, this New Orleans wedding is draped in class, glamour, and oh-so-much lovely! There is nothing quite like a military wedding, and in this magical, history-soaked city, it's even more dramatic. Sam Gregory Photography gives us stunning image after stunning image, and this beautiful couple really could not have had a more perfect summer day. Get Polished Events & Nola Flora teamed up to make every single detail of the day polished, romantic, and the end result was straight out of our very best blush-wedding dreams. And of course, no New Orleans wedding would be complete without a Second Line! Congrats you two; we wish you a lifetime of happiness! xoxo
About the day....
Michelle’s wedding matched her fashion sense: traditional, yet trendy. It was important for the day to feel chic and romantic with a party atmosphere. Some of her favorite wedding pieces that stood out to her were their stunning center pieces, floral arrangements, and delicious cake. She especially loved her personalized garter purchased from Etsy.
There were countless moments from her wedding day that Michelle will never forget. She felt like a princess as she rolled up in style riding in a Rolls Royce for everyone to see her grand entrance to the ceremony. The couple was also sure to include a few military traditions into their wedding. There was a sword arch for the newlyweds to walk through at the end of the ceremony and even a special performance by their pilot friends to a “Top Gun” theme during the reception.
Michelle and Chuck were introduced to one another by her brother during their teenage years, and they knew they had a special connection from the start. Chuck was close friends with Michelle’s brother after being stationed together in Pensacola, Florida. After dating since 2011, the couple was ready to take their relationship to the next step by getting married. Everything came full circle on their wedding day when both of Michelle’s siblings stood by their side at the altar as Best Man and Maid of Honor.
