Alexis and Jim were married on March 24 in New Orleans at Lady of Guadalupe Church with their reception at the Royal Sonesta.  This was a fantastic day and one that I was glad to be apart of.

When Alexis emailed me looking for a videographer, I was excited to hear from her.  I had filmed her best friend’s wedding and D’Andra and Buddy’s wedding was one of my funniest weddings to work.  Knowing Alexis from their wedding just made everything about their day fun and exciting for me.  I knew this was going to be a great day.

One of the best aspects of this wedding was their first look outside their Bridal Suite.  Everything went perfect and I knew that Alexis and Jim were nervous about the first look and when they finally saw each other dressed up, the look on their faces tell it out.  You could see happiness, excitement and a sense of calm on their faces when they saw each other for the first time.  It was great.

After that, everything just went perfectly.  Jim and his groomsmen were all dressed up in the Marine uniforms and Alexis and her bridesmaids were flawless.  I loved everything about this wedding from their first look, the sword ceremony to bring the reception, and Alexis and Jim dancing on stage with the band.  It was perfect and I’m glad that Alexis and Jim choose me and my staff to be a small part of their day.  Please enjoy their closing montage above and a few photos from their rehearsal dinner and wedding day.
