Ashley & Mati // Irish Cultural Museum Wedding

Ashley and Mati's wedding was extra special because it marked the third Stone family wedding we have filmed in about three years...talk about a lot of exciting wedding planning for one family!  We are honored to have taken part in all three of the family's unique and fun weddings.  Ashley and Mati relaxed with their bridal party at the Hyatt Regency downtown before heading to the Irish Cultural Museum for their first look and some pre-wedding portraits.  The weather was PERFECT!  The ceremony was intimate and romantic as they said their vows to each other underneath the glowing lights of the courtyard.  Everyone then headed over to the Wax Museum for dinner and dancing!  The night ended with a wild second line through the French Quarter and a carriage ride to send the newlyweds off!  Congrats to the beautiful couple!

All of the special ladies wore beautiful robes to get ready for the wedding celebration!
