We had our Rehearsal Dinner at Arnaud’s in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The menu gave everyone a taste of what great New Orleans food is all about. The night was filled with incredible food, strong cocktails, good laughs, tear-jerker speeches, beautiful flowers and amazing friends and family. Oh, and also a really good surprise. We had the perfect evening.

And here comes the surprise… the band busts through the doors and we have a surprise 2nd line, a New Orleans tradition, that we take from the restaurant back to the Ritz Carlton hotel
A few people hopped in the rickshaws!
The 2nd Line
Heading down Canal St with a light rain
It was such a fun surprise. We had a blast walking through the streets of the French Quarter and caught a little rain at the end which made it feel so surreal. We met up with other friends and family at the Davenport Lounge in the Ritz Carlton for an after dinner drink and then called it a night to make sure we got our beauty sleep.
