For all the readers easing in from Style Me Pretty, welcome to my blog! And for those that did not see the Style Me Pretty write up on this New Orleans wedding, look at some of Chris Williams’ fantastic photos here.
Regarding the super 8 wedding clip and 16mm wedding film above, most of Somesha’s final film is scored with songs from the musicians that were featured (live) at her reception, and in this clip, John Boutte sings her and her wedding party down the streets of the French Quarter in a horse drawn carriage to St. Louis Cathedral.
Locals, tourists, and sorority girls alike sent out their well wishes along the route, and guests (as well as a Dixieland jazz band) trumpted Somesha’s arrival.
Ahhhhhhh, New Orleans. You are truly one of a kind.
