This New Orleans inspired wedding shoot has been hard to keep under wraps, simply dripping in chic details and an old-money vibe we can’t get enough of! Boasting all the charm of the South blended with the classy pizazz of The Big Easy, Jen Symes Photography captured all the elements that made this North Texas-set styled shoot totally unique. Bess Ophelia Films expertly documented video footage all around these editorial scenes in their vintage mansion setting, where impeccable wedding attire and accessories from Stanley Korshak Bridal Salon set the mood with bridal fashion you’ll want to see to believe! From a delicate blue cake designed by the creative Ashton Marie Cakes that was covered in elegant white edible florals to a perfectly poured champagne tower, we think this wedding inspiration covers an affair typical of the fabulous French Quarter.

Plus, read on for a special note from the photographer about the vision and history behind this New Orleans inspired wedding shoot. Cheers!
From the photographer, Jen Symes Photography: “The vibrance, textures, history and magic of quintessential New Orleans are on full display at The Estate at Raintree Ranch. This hidden gem, an 8,200 square foot French Orleans style mansion, is nestled on a 452-acre private gated estate. Every detail of this inspiration shoot designed by RSVP Events is dripping in historic beauty, from the grandeur of the venue to the lush, jewel-toned florals by La Tee Da. The fitted modern wedding gown by designer Yaniv Persey was perfection. The ceremony was situated at the entrance of the estate where florist La Tee Da fashioned a dramatic magnolia garland draped dramatically from the upper balcony framing the couple’s nuptials. After changing into their reception attire, the bride and groom participated in a traditional second line as they danced their way into the courtyard reception escorted by a lively band quartet followed by toasts in front of a champagne tower and the cutting of the cake designed by Ashton Marie Cakes.”
