|5am at the airport, ready to go to sleep|
This wedding was a little different because it was more of a Wedding Anniversary Celebration of 10 years for Susan & Stan. I was booked for the wedding but have been working with Susan and her girlfriends a lot both here in New York & New Orleans. So once Susan shared me with me the date I locked it in my books because I couldn't miss it this time around.
I arrived in New Orleans on Friday morning met up with Susan to go over the details. So on Friday I enjoyed my time in New Orleans before turning in early. Saturday was definitely a magical day, I turned my room at the W Hotel French Quarter into my mini makeup room. Susan, Kecia and Miss Baley came up to get ready then took the shuttle bus over to Cafe Amelie. This beautiful in lush courtyard was a perfect place for this wonderful ceremony. After the celebration we went over to Kingfish for the after party for more drinks and celebrating.
