Sarah Levine and John “Boone” Tarlton’s New Orleans wedding day was filled with Louisiana details. From the New Orleans groove of Joe Simon’s Jazz Band to the locally grown Kumquats on the cake, there was no shortage of inspiration for this special day. Impressions Photography captured every sweet moment.
Not long after Sarah and Boone met through mutual friends, they realized they’d both found their soulmates. The couple moved from Baton Rouge to the Garden District in New Orleans where they soon discovered The Columns Hotel, an Italianate home built in 1883 by renowned New Orleans architect Thomas Sully.
It is hard to miss the charm of The Columns Hotel. Set in the northern Garden District, the hotel overlooks the St. Charles streetcar line. The Victorian lounge was formerly the home’s main dining room and features many original Thomas Sully pieces, including a remarkable mantle and overmantel with the original built-in breakfront. An ornate staircase leads to the guest accommodations. Each room is uniquely decorated in period pieces.
Sarah and Boone quickly came to love the charming little hotel down the street from their home and became regulars in the cocktail lounge. When the two were engaged, they knew they’d say their I Do’s at The Column and began planning their New Orleans wedding. They were very excited to share this special location with all of their friends and family.
Sarah and her bridesmaids prepared for the big day at The Columns. She wore a Vera Wang ballgown and an intricate updo by Embodyment Salon. Her bouquet and ceremony flowers were designed by Fat Cat Flowers. A Lipman Design coordinated the decor for the reception and ceremony, which took place at The Columns Hotel.
Congratulations, Sarah and Boone! – IDY
