Patrick and I have been spending a lot of time in New Orleans this year checking things off our wedding planning list. So many new spots have opened up since we started dating there almost a decade ago, I thought it would be fun to put together a little highlight reel of favorites here.
Where to Stay
We are planning on staying at the Henry Howard Hotel along with our wedding party, this renovated house is drenched in sunlight which is why I bookmarked it a couple years ago for day-of photography. Another recent renovation that just opened is Hotel Peter and Paul which is perfect if you want to stay in the quiet Marigny neighborhood.
Where to Shop
I mentioned Vintage 329 in a post about vintage shopping in New Orleans a while back, but I have to bring them up again. This shop is always a must-see on my list since they have one of the largest collections of vintage Chanel jewelry in the country.
Where to Eat
Cavan is a romantic brunch or dinner venue with all the old world charm New Orleans has to offer, be sure to order the whipped pimento goat cheese that comes with the antipasti plate. Another new find was Auction House Market where you can dine on a bit of everything from their local food hall setting, if you have a sweet tooth head to their coffee stand and pick up a frozen coffee.
