The Ace Hotel is an amazing place to have an elopement in New Orleans! With Kara + Mike’s gorgeous courtyard ceremony, celebratory portrait time around the Ace, and an incredibly romantic dinner we spent hours in the same building but it felt like multiple locations. I was able to meet Kara + Mike months before the wedding – a rarity for elopement clients! – and that just made me more excited to photograph this day! These images are some of my favorites I’ve ever taken.
The guest rooms at the Ace Hotel have the most gorgeous light!
There are so many wonderful portrait spots around the Ace!
I am so lucky to meet so many happy couples – after all, wedding days are typically some of the absolute happiest – but Kara and Mike really knocked the giddiness out of the park. My cheeks hurt at the end of the day from smiling every time THEY smiled – to be honest, they never stopped! They were so tender, loving, and humorous with each other and I have no doubt they can take on anything that comes in life successfully, together.
There are many gorgeous places to get married at the Ace Hotel – this is the second floor courtyard! There are rooms facing it toward the back, the perfect place for the wedding party to stay!
Kara + Mike hired Pop of Love, the all-inclusive elopement company I co-founded, to do all the planning and decor you see here – they knocked it out of the park!
The Ace Hotel also hosted and catered this gorgeous candlelit dinner – is there anything more romantic than this?!
These wax candelabras are seriously unforgettable!
