LW hopes you are having a great Fat Tuesday! All of that gumbo, king cake, and bourbon has our team dreaming of weddings in the Big Easy. With warm weather a majority of the year, readily available direct flights, and a spirit of lively celebration all year long, New Orleans is the perfect destination for Louisville couples's out of town nuptials. It's an obvious home away from home for Louisvillians because of its shared love of cuisine, place in history as a river city, celebration of the arts, and overall fusion of cultures. Not to mention, there is NO shortage of picturesque fleurs-de-lis. So grab a bourbon cocktail as you look over these must see New Orleans venues and you will be parading down the streets in your very own second line in no time!
