For high school sweethearts Jennifer and David, a wedding in their hometown of West Hartford, Connecticut, was a no-brainer. But after living in New Orleans while David was in medical school and Jennifer was studying for the bar, the couple fell in love with the city's Southern charm. So when they tied the knot on June 2, 2012, they combined the best of both worlds. The result? An intimate backyard affair filled with lively Jazz Age details and a taste of New Orleans.
A chalkboard menu outlined the food for the evening, fare that combined Jennifer’s Jamaican background with David’s love of New Orleans. During cocktail hour, guests snacked on mini po' boys and empanadas and sipped Pimm's cup cocktails, the couple's signature drink. Dinner--a choice of duck, red snapper, or spicy-glazed beef--was served family style, for an intimate dinner-party feel.
