Built in 1931 in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans, Louisiana, and inspired by french architecture, Il Mercato is a treasure that created an idyllic location for this fresh and fashionable styled shoot. Lush florals with citrus fruits accentuated the private courtyard with its reclaimed brick and Italian inspired details. Hues of blue added a dose of dashing beauty to items like the custom paperie, 3-tiered wedding cake and lux table linens. The bride’s gown and accessories offered a modern twist: the dress featured a deep vee neckline which were matched with strappy, blue heels.
