A true New Orleans wedding!

Congrats to our friends, Stinks and Sparkles, on their wedding last night. We had a great time and it was a beautiful event. It was New Orleans style all the way... starting Thursday night with a wonderful rehearsal dinner at Ralph's on the Park including New Orleans favorites, gumbo and bread pudding.
Followed by a fabulous Friday bridal luncheon at the famous Commander's Palace.
The bridal party headed to the church via a New Orleans tradition called the Second Line.

(No, it wasn't raining...Umbrellas are part of the Second Line tradition.)
And then we had a raucous good time at the reception right on the golf course at Audubon Park.
(That drumset is actually the groom's cake!! It was amazing. I've never seen anything like it. It was made by Flour Power Bakery in Chalmette and they outdid themselves!)(Me and Big Monkey painting the town red!)

The bride and groom jet off to Hawaii tomorrow and I hope they have a wonderful honeymoon.

it looks like fun dancing around outside after a wedding. but i do not understand why one would dance with umbrellas period. its rather silly to me =p

I believe, Claude, that dancing with umbrellas is a kind of interpretive dance, in which the residents of New Orleans do when doing Voodoo. That is what I think, since I obviously can't infer for myself whether or not it is raining in a picture that I see.
