Six years ago on August 29 Hurricane Katrina decimated the Gulf Coast. The resulting 30 foot storm surge caused massive devastation to the coastal community of Bay St. Louis. But, like their neighbors they continue with the rebuilding process. Two weeks ago after opening festivities in NOLA, the family and friends of Brandon and Haley headed just twenty miles east of the Louisiana / Mississippi state border to BSL for their wedding and reception.
The celebration was held at Bay St. Louis Community Hall, the first public building constructed since Katrina… a new beginning for the town and for Brandon and Haley.
There is no one I know quite like Haley, so I knew this would be no ordinary wedding. The wedding was filled with personal touches from the two of them… think Oklahoma and NOLA meet Boston. Seriously though, I’ve never left a wedding with so much swag. They even made sure the bottles of Crystal met the TSA Liquid Requirements.
But, it wouldn’t have been a wedding for a boy from New Orleans without a Second Line.
Laissez le bon temps rouler!
