New Orleans Destination Weddings: A Little Country, A Little Chic

I’ve been going on and on about destination weddings in New Orleans‘ famed French Quarter – and with good reason – but I’ve left out a very important aspect of New Orleans’ charm. Outside the furor of the other city that never sleeps, and not far outside, is true country. The kind you don’t find in too many places anymore: untamed, yet civilized.

Why bring this up? Two words: Honey moon.  Is there a more perfect honey moon than a week on a working farm? Trail riding, serenity, home cooked meals of ingredients gathered not 100 feet away?  Maybe I’m a romantic, but I find the marriage of the crop to the soil to be the perfect analogy for man and wife.  Being out of cell service range is romantic enough in and of itself.

There are plenty of bed and breakfasts to choose from within an hour drive of New Orleans proper, and any are perfect for your perfect destination honeymoon, whether you just want peace and quiet or are looking to saddle up and get out into the real middle of nowhere. After your energizing party-wedding in the French Quarter you can have a honeymoon that seems to take all the time in the world, just in one sunrise-to-sunset.  Give me a call and I can help you find whatever it is your heart desires.
