The minute we laid eyes on this stunning New Orleans wedding captured by Lance Nicoll Wedding Photography, we were immediately infatuated by its statement-making color scheme of burgundy, mauve, deep ocean blue and gold hues. Bella Blooms created wild and dramatic arrangements (plus a truly unforgettable arbor) lush with roses, greenery and cascading amaranthus. The elements of this day planned by Sapphire Events perfectly intertwined the lively spirit of New Orleans with subtle pops of venetian flair. Take in all the moody and romantic details below...
