After more than eleven years together and a pandemic-induced rescheduling of their wedding date, Corryn and Kaleigh finally tied the knot in an elegant wedding with family and friends. The New Orleans brides joined their wedding party for hair and makeup before taking a private moment to read letters from each other. They parted ways to dress separately before their sweet first look.

Both women wore long mermaid-style gowns covered in intricate ivory lace. Their ceremony took place in an industrial loft space designed with brick and wood accents which tied in the warm lighting and elegant details of the wedding decor. The wedding party wore matching blush pink dresses that reflected the light pink roses in the brides’ bouquets and table arrangements.

Candles and greenery adorned the reception space, where the newlyweds shared first dances with each other and their families before continuing the party with a second line, a celebratory NOLA tradition with a festive parade accompanied by a jazz band.
