The Tree of Life is one of the most popular locations for a New Orleans elopement and it’s easy to see why! The cost, the location, and the large oak tree with romantic Spanish moss makes it ideal for a small but celebratory ceremony.
I always love meeting couples in real life (usually, after quite a bit of emails and messages back and forth!) – every couple’s story is so unique, and I’ve found that couples who choose to elope have especially unique stories! For Chris + Claire, both sets of their parents also had eloped decades ago – I loved hearing all the details of these three sets of eloped lovebirds! Claire’s family has been coming to French Quarter Fest for years, so this year they just tacked on a very special celebration to kick it all off!
Chris + Claire hired Pop of Love, New Orleans’ first all-inclusive company I co-founded, to handle everything from the officiant to the decor to the bouquet and I’m so glad they did!
Chris + Claire brought this banner to snap some pictures for their elopement announcement – I love that idea!
Claire went for bright bright florals and it really added to the tropical feel of the day.
After the ceremony, we snuck over to The Columns for a few more portraits and drinks!
Here are the sweetest words from the bride herself:
We live in Maryland so planning a wedding in New Orleans seems like it would have obvious challenges. I was concerned at first but finding Pop of Love was the best thing that we could have done. Logan and Sarah were absolutely wonderful to work with and made everything so easy and stress free.
Sarah was also absolutely wonderful and extremely talented. She is so nice and completely put us at ease while photographing the ceremony and a second location after. Our wedding photos turned out beautiful.
Logan and Sarah both were such a major part in making our wedding day amazing. I really cannot say enough good things about Pop of Love and would recommend them over and over.
