Amsterdam meets New Orleans: Lulu and Jochem’s Extraordinary Wedding at Felicity Church

New Orleans and Amsterdam are internationally renowned as vibrant cities with unforgettable character, and the splendor that radiates from these one-of-a-kind places is something worth holding on to.

The welcoming and jubilant spirit of New Orleans is what our bride, Lulu, enjoyed so much while she lived here, and it’s what brought her back to New Orleans to celebrate the joy she found in Jochem; in Amsterdam.

Lulu and Jochem were married at Felicity Church in New Orleans last September. We challenged ourselves to celebrate their unique spirit with remarkable flowers in violet (Lulu’s favorite color); incorporating blooms that are so unique, yet so at home amongst the magnolia leaves.
