NOPSI Hotel Wedding: Morgan + Mike

If you could sum up your wedding in three words, what would they be?
Gorgeous, Classic, and lots of love!

Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
We chose to get married at Immaculate Conception both wanting a traditional ceremony and the church is absolutely breathtaking.

We also both fell in love with NOPSI the moment we walked into the ballroom. It’s such a unique place with the elegant ballroom chandeliers and big windows, yet also has exposed brick. 

What was your favorite wedding detail?
I loved the floral details in the ballroom! Diana at Fat Cat did an amazing job with the greenery and flowers. The band and second line were also SO fun. Every detail was perfect!

What is your favorite wedding memory from the day?
It’s hard to pick just one, everything was amazing! I would say seeing Mike for our first look and getting the chance to take in the moment just us.

How did you incorporate your personalities into your wedding celebration?
We both incorporated our personalities in the food for sure. We had char-grilled oysters, a lobster themed station, and a Popeyes grooms cake – all of our favorites! 

We both love to have fun and shutting down Canal street for our second line was definitely a highlight!

What is your wedding song?
“Coming Home” – Leon Bridges
