Something NAVY Blue
Christina and Chadwick had the perfect Spring Wedding this past April at Stella. There is something extra special about a service ceremony and this one was no less. Not only could you feel the pride in their love but you could feel the pride in their service as well.
Another special element to this wedding ceremony was the extra special bridesmaids. Christina's two best women that stood by her side as she married the man of her dreams were also her two greatest blessings - her two daughters. It added an extra special element to the joining of their families.
The ceremony was an elegant one under Oak Row. The lovely roses by Iris Florist and stunning décor by Luminous Events added an extra romantic element to the already intimate setting under Stella's Lazy Tree.
Stella's Lazy Tree is a 150 year Live Oak that creates a magical setting, where sweeping, intertwining branches meet the ground and curve up again, forming a beautiful natural arbor.
Iris and Luminous increased its natural southern flare!
Not only was this ceremony extra special because it was a Navy wedding, but it was also extra special to host at Stella because Chad and Christina are Braithwaite locals! We love being just a short distance from Downtown New Orleans, but we also pride ourselves in the small but strong community of Braithwaite, LA.
Chadwick had a fun surprise for Christina and all of their guests with a choreographed garter toss.
As always, 12 Seasons Catering did not disappoint with the delicious cuisine. The food was everything you could want from your Louisiana favorites - from andouille and gator sausage charcutier board to a variety of Cajun pastas.
This group was such a fun crowd and danced the night away. Everyone at the special event was having an incredible time, especially the bride and groom!
Every wedding at Stella is an important night to us, but there is something extra meaningful about being apart of a service wedding, and we are so grateful we were able to help create this Navy wedding. We thank Chadwich for his service and we thank the happy new couple for letting us celebrate with their fun and beautiful family at Stella Plantation.
