Leslie is a fashion stylist and Collin is a fashion photographer. So there was no doubt that their wedding would be creative and unique. The couple of twelve years considers New Orleans one of their favorite places to travel to, so there was no question that they would be married there. Their celebration took place at RACE & RELIGIOUS, a historic private home named for it’s cross streets.
Their wedding day was a mix of vintage, rustic and circus themed. The couple incorporated their love of old films and Vaudeville, and even had a masquerade cocktail hour to join in New Orleans tradition. Guests traveled from all over the United States and even Mexico and included both of the couple’s families, friends from high school, and fashion industry friends.
From their centerpieces to their masks and even the bride’s bouquet, this was one well-done DIY wedding. The day also included special touches such as rustic theater curtains created by the father of the bride and a cake made by the groom’s aunt. The brides gown was custom made using ivory beaded lace, silk and chiffon that she selected herself. There was not a dull moment as the day included performances by stilt walkers, mimes, a fire dancer, 2 folk bands, and even a dog show!
