ABOUT THE VENUE
The Marigny Opera House, located in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, dates back to the mid-1800s and was originally known as Holy Trinity Catholic Church. The church was closed by the Archdiocese of New Orleans in 1997 and the building was reopened as a “Church of the Arts” in 2011.
Marigny Opera House now serves as a community meeting place and hosts charitable and philanthropic meetings, workshops and seminars for public and private audiences as well as weddings and other private events.
The lush garden vibe carries through to the reception table design with a dramatic elevated centerpiece complemented by small vases overflowing with blooms by Hummingbird Floral Studio.
Embroidered monogram napkins by Southern at Birth rest on each place setting and hand-painted taper candles by MJ Tablescapes peek from the fanciful florals.
A frosted acrylic table number by Book with Brooks and True Value Rental’s Louis XVI gold chairs complete the design.
Helena and Jarrel pour a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut Rose Champagne into a tower of champagne coupes from True Value Rental.
Helena and Jarrel pose with the 4-tier blue fondant wedding cake by Kimbla’s Cakes. Handmade sugar flowers cascade down the cake.
The cake sits atop a round gold plateau cake stand from True Value Rental and Nüage Designs Blush Primrose 3D Overlay. Votives from Glo Events and springs of greenery from Hummingbird Floral Studio complete the table.
Adding a New Orleans touch, a beignet tower “groom’s cake” with buttercream icing, fresh raspberries and powdered sugar sits atop a gold plateau cake stand from True Value Rental.
Votives and a blush satin linen from Glo Events and sprigs of greenery from Hummingbird Floral Studio decorate the table.
We fell in love with Beyond the Bar’s vintage Piaggio Ape (pronounced ah-pay, and translating to “bee” from Italian)! This cute little truck brings the prosecco anywhere it can drive in and comes complete with a matching bar!
Frosted acrylic signage from Book with Brooks personalizes the bar and florals by Hummingbird Floral Studio complete the look.
