One of my favorite things to do is travel and experience the many different cultures across our globe. Being able to plan a wedding where I can help the couple incorporate elements from each of their cultural backgrounds can make me feel like I’ve traveled and learned a lot without ever leaving New Orleans. Rachel is Jewish and Luis was born in Mexico. We brought a little bit of Mexico into City Park with bright tropical flowers, papel picado flags, a mariachi band for cocktail hour, and of course a margarita bar. They honored Rachel’s Jewish traditions with a traditional Jewish ceremony under a chuppah with her family’s Tallit above them, and we worked the Hora in there as they danced the night away.
