Nola Intimate Wedding at Race Religious During Covid w. Modern, Romantic Details | Lovegood Rentals

Today we bring you one of our favorite intimate weddings we have done so far this year. From their planner Michelle Norwood Events, "Ceisha and Derek exchanged vows and got married in an intimate ceremony in New Orleans, when restrictions from Covid caused them to cut their original guest list from 75 to 12 guests."

Lovegood Collection : Winnifred Chairs, Kendall 8' Tables, Porter Sofa, Finley Chairs, Gold Round Coffee Table, Assorted Pillows, Off White Tufted Ottomans, Kendall Bar, Indie Barbacks, Gold Diamond Bar Cart, Harper Highboys, Shabby Podium

Lovegood Lounge : Porter Sofa, Finley Chairs, Gold Round Coffee Table, Assorted Pillows,

and Off White Tufted Ottomans

Of course, we were so happy to be back at Race + Religious after 6 months due to Covid-19. "The wedding took place at Race and Religious, located in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. This private venue hosts three homes, including a bougainvillea-lined courtyard and a swimming pool area lit by gas lamps." - Michelle Norwood Events

This amazing piece of work came from the team behind Antigua Florals, it is a beauty!

"Cece and Derek met while both living in Kansas, and Cece was finishing her residency program. The bride thought it was strange when people got married after only knowing each other for less than two year, but the groom made her rethink after popping the question after 9 months of dating." - Michelle Norwood Events

"Due to Covid and the restrictions in New Orleans during the time of their wedding, it was key that their guest be able to experience the iconic second line. Which they did within the courtyard at Race + Religious with a permit from the city! A seated 5 course meal on the beautiful back courtyard, a tap truck filled with beer and wine, a bar for spirits all from Texas where the couple resides and mini cakes for each guest to enjoy, atop half marble, half wood cake stands that were also their guests favors. Guests enjoyed corn hole and tarot card readings after dinner, before Derek and the officiant jumped in the pool. " - Michelle Norwood Events
