Our NOLA Nuptials: The Bridals

Thanks to all of you who have been following me and have patiently awaited posts about what the dress looks like. I was really worried that Mr. Ballet Flat would accidentally come across a post, and I wanted to keep the dress a complete surprise! You will definitely see the details of the dress in the bridal pictures. :)

So, I’m from the New Orleans area, and it was hard to choose a place to take pictures. The city is so gorgeous to me, but since it was the spring, I decided to take advantage of the beautiful New Orleans City Park.

That morning, I had a bit of a snag in my plans. I currently wear contact lenses, and I’m pretty blind without visual assistance. That morning, my contact tore. So, I was walking around the park with very blurred vision, and I was worried that the pictures would look weird since I had trouble focusing on where the camera lens was. (For what it’s worth, I did wear glasses that day. I wasn’t walking/driving around blind!)

Thankfully, my photographer, Amanda Meyer, came to the rescue and really helped me out! Amanda, if you are reading this, thanks for kicking away spiky black caterpillars that I couldn’t see and for leading me around the park!

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the session. I have them in black and white as well, but I think it gives you a better idea of why I chose City Park with all of the colors. :)

As you can probably tell, I had my hair/makeup trial that day. I ended up LOVING the first look they came up with for my makeup, and the inspiration photo I brought was the “sweet” one from this entry I posted a while back. Thanks to everyone for your help with choosing the look!

Were you able to keep your wedding dress a complete secret to your fiance/husband?
