This Hudson Gardens Wedding is absolutely beautiful and original with a New Orleans twist to celebrate their marriage! Courtney and Kevin used so much creativity when it came to planning the details of their wedding. The couple was married in a ceremony at Hudson Gardens’ beautiful Monet’s Place. Their reception was in the Welcome Garden Pavillion.
This couple chose to have an outdoor Hudson Gardens wedding as a way to honor Colorado in their wedding ceremony. The groom is from New Orleans so they chose to use New Orleans food and attire, and carry the theme into their decor with table names as street names. Some of our favorite details included their blue striped bow-ties, the table decorations, and the ‘just married’ pedicab that drove the couple away from their ceremony!
One thing that was important to this couple was to do a lot of the details themselves with help of family and friends. So everything from the flowers to the decor was hand crafted. This includes the adorable cake-topper made by Courtney, the bride, who is a ceramics teacher and does a lot of her own pottery! She also did the table decor!
When it came time for their reception we were blown away by the fun New Orleans’s wedding traditions have. A huge highlight for the bride and groom was that their families traveled from Pennsylvania and New Orleans to celebrate with them!
As the sun set, the tent was lit by twinkling lights overhead. Guests followed behind Courtney and Kevin for the traditional second line parade. The bride and groom carried uniquely decorated umbrellas as they celebrated the beginning of a new life as husband and wife! The party continued as guests danced, and even did the limbo!
We want to give a special thank you to this awesome couple for sharing their special day with us. Please enjoy the photos from Courtney and Kevin’s amazing Hudson Gardens wedding.
