a wedding and all that jazz



A highlight of our last year was attending a wedding in New Orleans with family and close family friends. We have known the bride since she was a bright eyed toddler and through many years now of friendship and playtimes with my children.

The bride and groom gave all of us wedding guests the gift of a weekend of fun and feasting. An amazing couple who own a restaurant and a food truck, generously put their guests comfort (and stomachs) at top priority. We ate wonderful food of course, and were entertained by three different local musical groups throughout the weekend. I sketched the second jazz band from the wedding reception while sipping on champagne. A third group playing zydeco came later in the evening but I had gone back to our rental cottage to babysit while this little sweetie's parents danced the night away.

On Sunday morning we were again treated to a brunch (that lasted until all the guests had to go home!) at 1000 Figs in New Orleans. I sketched the outside of the restaurant sitting on the curb across the street.
