Restaurant Galvez | "Dancin', y'all!"

 

Following their New Orleans wedding ceremony, and after a fantastic dinner catered by Joel's, Somesha and Olivier's guests were treated to a jazz set by the third brass band of the evening, Treme.  Don't they look spectacular in this 16mm wedding and super 8 wedding clip?

Named for the neighborhood out of which they were conceived, Treme has been a mainstay of the New Orleans music scene for many years with such notables as Kermit Ruffins playing through their ranks.

The guests boogeyed to their hearts' contentment to numerous upbeat jazz renditions, and this filmmaker struggled once again to separate himself from the seductive pull of the dance floor.

Shortly after drummer Lionel Batiste pounded out his last note, the bride and groom escaped into the night unannounced, seeking out more adventure.

Somesha and Olivier, thank you for having me along to create your wedding video.  May your worst day in Paris be no less than your best day in New Orleans.
