The landmarks of downtown Baton Rouge, Louisiana, inspired the wedding between Dawn Carrier (26 and a project manager) and Carson Narcomey (30 and a field engineer). “Carson and I wanted a very memorable wedding that was personable,” Dawn says of her day, which used notes of navy, gold and silver. The Louisiana Capitol was in the background for the ceremony in Capitol Park, while the rooftop reception showcased the sweeping views of the old Capitol and the Mississippi River. The museum’s modern structures were softened by dark wood chiavari chairs and flowers. Dawn and Carson met in the same city while in a computer science class at Louisiana State University. She sent him a Facebook message to ask a question about a test she already knew the answer to and they hit it off from there. She went to visit him in his hometown in Oklahoma, and he popped the question in one of his favorite places. He then gave her a bouquet of peonies, which she also used in her wedding day. Dawn wore a layered, beaded gown with varying shades of white and tan, while her bridesmaids wore white Joanna August floor-length gowns in white. Carson wore a navy blue custom-made tuxedo. For the reception, festivities moved to the Shaw Center for the Arts to their terrace. “The terrace overlooks the Mississippi River, which was great for sunsets and our fireworks show.” White chairs and couches made the space feel cozier. Guests dined on Southern favorites like fried catfish and shrimp and grits. After their first dance to “I’ll Be Here for You” by Randy Rogers, they did a money dance, in which guests could give them well wishes and money for the honeymoon. Fireworks lit up the river in a surprise ending before the couple left to sparklers held by loved ones. Carson had the best advice for other couples: “Don’t take yourselves too seriously, and love often. Life is a great thing and can be even better with a kick-ass wife.” —Caroline Eubanks

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” ― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

From chicken and biscuits to parading through the streets of the French Quarter in a second line (With personalized umbrellas!), Elizabeth and Rick’s wedding was one of those nights where everything was simply – perfect.

Held in an outdoor ceremony, we danced at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, strolled the backstreets, and even stopped for a photo at the St. Louis Cathedral. You can’t create an aura: they exist on their own, and without pretense. With Rick and Elizabeth’s wedding, their attention to details was what set this wedding apart, giving their guests a unique experience that they’ll talk about for years to come.

Three-piece suits, vintage pearls, and a modern twist on classic themes shook up the proverbial martini of what could have been just another wedding. Instead, Elizabeth’s and Rick’s Great Gatsby themed wedding felt like a swinging party at Jay Gatsby’s mansion in West Egg, only right off the world famous Bourbon Street.

Proposal from the bride


A. Bryan told me his parents had tickets to a dinner on the Natchez Steamboat that they were giving to us. I was throwing my friend a graduation party the next day and didn’t want to go. I tried to talk him into going another night but he wasn’t having it. My last client ended up canceling that day (which was planned) so my boss told me to go home early. I drove him crazy when I got home because I wanted to take my time to get ready since I had more time but he kept telling me we had to go. I kept asking him what time the dinner was for and he keep saying he really wanted to go somewhere and get drinks first. After I was finally ready he brought me to New Orleans and we parked by Woldenberg Park. We had no idea the Oyster Festival was going on so there were people EVERYWHERE. We got a drink and walked toward the boat. There was a lady doing caricatures and he said he wanted to do one. When she was done drawing the picture she turned it around and I could see our two dogs on the bottom. I got up to get a closer look and couldn’t figure out how she got our dogs in the picture, I turned to show him and he was down on one knee. I was SO surprised. I didn’t know what to do next or who to tell.
