Your Destination Wedding in New Orleans

Thinking about New Orleans as a place to hold your destination wedding or special event? What about that family reunion, corporate outing or group getaway?  We’ve got you covered in this episode!

New Orleans is a great destination for your guests, a fun place to celebrate and provides a great background for your special day. Why? Fabulous backdrop for photos plus the combination of food, music, sightseeing and history.

In this episode, Mark sits down with Kay Morrison, owner and founder of The Occasional Wife.  Among other things, Kay and her team specialize in putting together the weddings no one else will touch!  You want to get married in an old church and have everything done on site? How about tying the knot on an old bridge spanning historic Bayou St. John? No problem.

Mark and Kay discuss everything from unique locations and ideas, to considerations like the weather, the time of year and what to eat. The two also talk about fun ways to expand the party, including streetcar rides, Garden District tours, sno-ball tasting and lots more!

Leave it to these New Orleans insiders to help you make your destination wedding or special event one people will be talking about for years to come.  Mark should know – he and his wife were married in New Orleans seven years ago while they were living in Virginia.

All this and more on episode #18 of Beyond Bourbon Street!
