We started the day with Courtney and Lee at the Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter, as everyone prepared for the fun celebration ahead! After a sweet first look with her dad, Courtney met Lee at the Arnaud's French 75 Bar for an intimate moment together. A family friend officiated over their funny and touching ceremony in front of a gorgeous floral backdrop by the always stunning, Dunn and Sonnier. From the film and photos below, you'll be able to feel the happiness emanating from these cuties! After the second line through the quarter with Kinfolk, everyone enjoyed a delicious sit-down dinner and glow necklace filled dance party with The Phunky Monkeys at Latrobe's on Royal. Great time working with the super awesome Grand Events New Orleans and Vue Photography! Check out more of this cute couple's story below and make sure to watch their Bride Film!

The bride and groom both went to Texas A&M, and knew of each other in college but never hung out. When they really met (as Courtney puts it), Lee lived in Fort Worth and Courtney lived in Houston. They ran into each other in College Station at a bar after a football game and dated long distance for 2 years, until Lee finally moved to Houston. Needless to say, after making their relationship work long distance, Courtney and Lee have overcome their fare share of obstacles before becoming husband and wife.
