New Orleans Street Car Wedding with Sara and Mat

This wedding took the “New Orleans wedding” feel to the next level. Sara and Mat’s wedding ceremony was inside a moving street car. Not in front or around it, but inside! WHILE IT WAS DRIVING TO THE RECEPTION! Our team has shot hundreds of unique New Orleans weddings, but never while our venue was traveling down the road. We were excited (and a little nervous- we had never shot a street car wedding before!) and couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out. Emily Sullivan (owner of Emily Sullivan Events) and her team knocked it out of the park! We also instantly fell in love with the couple. There is no doubt that Sara and Mat are adventurous, creative and very much in love. Make sure to check out the video to hear the unbelievably sweet vows they wrote to each other!

Just a fun tidbit:
The St. Charles Streetcar line (where the wedding ceremony was held) is the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world, as it has been in operation since 1835.

About the couple:
Mat and Sara’s story begins from two distant locations. Sara, growing up in Southwest Louisiana, moved to Jacksonville after graduating from LSU Physical Therapy school to find the love over her life (maybe). Mat spent the first two-thirds of his life in upstate New York, moving to Jacksonville after high school. Little did he know that 10 years later his life would be turned upside-down. The two went on their first date in late June of 2015 and haven’t looked back since. From tearing up dance floors, to exploring new places, the last two years have been full of excitement, and they both look forward to taking the next “leap”.

Here is the highlight we did of Michelle & Jacob’s wedding. They were married Feburary 4th 2012 in Ruston Louisiana at the Squire Creek Country Club. It was a long drive but I got 30 miles to the gallon in our new 2012 Ford Edge with Eco-Boost engine. What more could I ask for? It drives like a dream, gets great gas mileage and holds all of our gear.
