Ronni & Brian were engaged at the Tree of Life during a trip to New Orleans so they knew this would be the perfect place for their Sunday ceremony. On Friday night guests were treated to a pub crawl & then on Saturday Ronni & Brian took photos around the French Quarter before joining their guests on a swamp tour. Ronni wore an ear cuff made famous by Miss Philippines Catriona Gray when she won Miss Universe in 2018, as a nod to each of their mothers being Filipino.
Following their wedding ceremony, guests enjoyed New Orleans snacks & drinks while playing lawn games as the bridal party took photos. Guests were then bused to the French Quarter to the House of Blues for the reception. As you’ll see both from their boutonnieres & wedding cakes, this couple also loves Star Wars so they included some hints of it also. The comfort food at the reception was topped off with 3 cakes, one of which was actually a birthday cake for their friend. Being musicians themselves, Brian & his father both got on stage to play with the band during the night as well. Their reception ended with a private last dance as guests went downstairs to line up for the sendoff & 2nd line to the after party on Bourbon Street. It’s no wonder this awesome couple was featured by Offbeat Bride!
