Jeff + Margaret...Audubon Zoo, New Orleans Wedding

I have shot in and around Audubon Park and Zoo before and everyone knows it's a classic New Orleans favorite.

I had never shot a wedding at the Sea Lion exhibit at Audubon before though.

Let me tell you...this spot shot straight to the top of my list. I was stunned at how beautiful it was.

This was partly also due to the fact that the day of Jeff and Margaret's wedding, the weather was incredible!!!

The weather could not have been more perfect...seriously.

And I honestly have to give credit where credit is due. Jeff & Margaret are a stunningly beautiful couple. In every way. These two live in New York but knew that New Orleans would be a perfect fit for a stunning wedding and they were of course quite correct.

What was my favorite thing about this wedding you ask? Well, besides how unbelievably gorgeous the entire day was...these two and pretty much most of their guests can really...truly...dance!!!!!

In fact...I believe the groom's dancing skills are one of many reasons these two ended up together!

This was definitely one for the books.

Jeff and Margaret, you two are stunning and it was a joy to spend such a beautiful day with you guys. I hope these photos will always serve as sweet reminders of an unforgettable day!
