Race & Religious Wedding in New Orleans | Ananda and Kevin


Ananda and Kevin, New Orleans natives now living in New York, planned – with the help of the super talented Satchel Planning and Design – an amazing wedding day at the very well know venue, Race & Religious. What has quickly become one of the go to locations, Race & Religious is uniquely New Orleans and uniquely their own. The venue rustic styling provides gorgeous vignettes for bridal prep, wedding ceremonies, and wedding receptions.

Ananda and Kevin spent their full wedding day at Race & Religious getting ready both on grounds at separate suites. The wedding ceremony occurred with an intimate gathering of friends and family in the outdoor courtyard. Following the ceremony guests were treated to a full service sit down dinner with a private chef and catering brought in to create a superb menu for the evening. The timing for the night allowed for us to steal Kevin and Ananda for some beautiful post-ceremony portraits with the bride and groom, we always love when we can find free time to create images for our brides and grooms! I should mention that not only were guests treated to an exquisite dining experience but the tablescapes and floral arrangements were stunning.

Ananda, Kevin, their friends, and family all cut loose after the dinner starting off with heart felt toasts that were followed with dancing, partying, and non-stop laughter and joy. At the end of the night the new married couple ran through a run of sparklers and drove off in a their ride light-heartily adorned with hearts. It was an honor to be a part of Ananda and Kevin’s wedding day!
