|The beautiful newlyweds!!|
The festivities kicked off with top notch po'boys at The Pitot House. It was such a gorgeous setting for the rehearsal dinner.
|The Groom and his adoring fans|
|Stevie, you're fabulous!|
|Something tells me Punty felt that sugar shot the next day.|
After gorging on New Orleans cuisine, it was time to get gussied up for the main event.
The ceremony was officiated by the couple's friend, Hallie, which added such a unique, personal touch.
|The Second Line into the reception|
Mandy and Steve took the party to the next level with Dirty Dozen Brass Band as the evening's entertainment. I can't remember the last time I shook it that hard.
|The dancing never stopped|
|The Fontys heart The DeLongs!|
|Of course the limbo "bar" came out|
But, seeing that we are in New Orleans, the party can't end at midnight! The fun continued at Blue Nile where we had New Mastersounds play until the wee hours.
The next morning (only hours after Mr. Fonty went to bed) we ate at Patois for brunch. It was one of the best meals I've had. The host bent over backwards to accommodate us. They were reservations only and wouldn't have an opening for 2 hours, but he set a street side table for us. It was a perfect way to nurse our leaving NOLA blues.
And added fun fact, Patois is used as the restaurant in Treme!
Congratulations, Mandy & Steve!
What an amazing weekend!
