Why New Orleans is the Perfect Elopement Destination 


More and more couples are deciding to elope when they get married. In fact, a survey has found that 62% of engaged couples are open to considering an elopement instead of a traditional wedding. If you are thinking about eloping for your wedding, New Orleans is simply the perfect elopement destination. Here are the top reasons that make eloping to New Orleans iconic.

A Ceremony Option for Everyone

Regardless of what you desire in a wedding locale, you will likely find it here in New Orleans. From exchanging vows aboard a steamship to getting married in lush gardens or the beautiful splendor of City Park, there are countless options. New Orleans’ rich heritage and diverse culture provides so many options for setting.

Atmosphere is Unparalleled

There are many fun places to get married; however, the magical atmosphere of New Orleans makes it the perfect elopement destination. The city is known for throwing parties, so why not celebrate your elopement together – or with a handful of friends – in a city that loves finding any occasion to throw a party? In addition to many options for receptions, you can keep the party going after with our famous nightlife.

Many Gorgeous Backdrops

For most couples, one of the most considerations when getting married is having photos to remember the day by. Eloping in New Orleans makes this easy. From cobblestone streets and the iconic French and Spanish style architecture of the French Quarter to the regal setting of the Garden District and the acres of nature in City Park, there are so many wonderful sites to capture the perfect photos. I love working with couples to get the perfect shots to celebrate their love for one another.

The Food Scene

While many major cities have top tier restaurants, the food scene in New Orleans is something like no other place on earth. The city is known for its creole cooking, but you will also find plenty of places selling Cajun food, French food, and many types of fusion. Eloping in New Orleans means you will have plenty of delicious options for creating the perfect wedding meal. And, of course, you can take in the culinary scene throughout your visit.

Eloping to New Orleans is Convenient Another thing that makes New Orleans the perfect elopement destination is that it is centrally located. Whether you are on the West Coast, East Coast, or in the middle, you’ll likely be able to get here with just a short flight or two. Additionally, if you are inviting a few guests, New Orleans is a place on most people’s “travel bucket list.” Add in the city’s affordability compared to other major cities and it is truly a convenient choice.
