Annick & Matthew // Hotel Monteleone Wedding Video

We spent the entire weekend with Annick and Matthew starting at their amazing Rehearsal Party (because it was more than a Rehearsal Dinner) at the Court of Two Sisters in the French Quarter.  We loved how they opted to end the night with a second line through the French Quarter.  This was a wild first second line for most, since a lot of their guests were from out of town!  The Hotel Monteleone was the perfect setting for the entire wedding day...from the intimate moments while they were getting ready, to the never ending dance party that carried on into the wee hours of the night, Annick and Matthew celebrated in true New Orleans fashion!

The Hotel Monteleone is one of our favorite hotels in the city!

Matt surprised me and proposed at the house. I came home from work and the whole house was candlelit...there was a pathway with a million arrows on the floor that directed me through a path of strings of photos that depicted ‘our journey.’ At the end, he was waiting with our two dogs dressed up in ties and popped the question! We called all of our family and friends, and then went on to the next surprise. I thought we were going on a scavenger hunt, and our first stop was the bar, Bellocq, and instead of meeting what I thought was going to be just my best friend there, it was a party of 30-40 of my closest friends! It was perfection. He even flew my maid of honor and another bridesmaid in for the celebration.

Hello All!

Welcome to the new Bride Film Blog, aka the Bride Blog!  We are so excited to debut our new website and officially make our first blog post.  We are feeling inspired and rejuvenated....ready to share with you all the creative ideas we have flowing through Bride Film headquarters.

So let us be your guide in this exciting / scary / fun / creative wedding planning adventure.  For some, it may be new territory, for others, you've been around awhile.  We aren't promising to bring you revolutionary info, but we are promising to share with you our perspective on the wild wedding world and most importantly, the wild world of wedding films.

First up, Ashley and Janic.  These two had a fabulous wedding at The Roosevelt Hotel and St. Mary's Assumption Church in New Orleans.  We love St. Mary's Assumption....with its warm feeling and dark hard wood interior, as soon as you enter, you will feel old New Orleans ambiance.  But more importantly, we love Ashley & Janic.  Read on to learn more about their story...

Cast & Crew:

From Ashley:

"Janic and I met, working as interns, in the summer of 2005 at Hibernia National Bank.  Eight long years later, Janic asked my Dad's permission to marry me. In March, we went on a family ski trip to Breckenridge, Colorado. After riding the chair lift on our way up for another run down the mountain, we stopped to pose for a picture. While setting up for the picture (skis and all), Janic got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. We got engaged at the top of Peak 9."
