When you grow up in New Orleans, no wedding is complete without a second line. New Orleans is my favorite city in the world, and in fact, I am spending most of October there. A second line is basically a parade – the main line, or the first half, is the brass line. Those who follow the band are the second line. You parade for any celebration in New Orleans: a funeral, a wedding, for mardi gras, for festival season, for no reason whatsoever. Umbrellas and handkerchiefs (napkins will do) are essential, so when I showed up to photograph details in the tent for Jaymee and Jacob’s Landing Resort wedding and discovered feathered umbrellas on the back of their chairs, well, I knew that we were going to have a second line and I got VERY excited.
Not only was there a second line, but Jaymee and Jacob’s diverse group of friends brought a dance party like no other to their celebration. I have been blessed with a number of epic dance parties this year, but theirs is definitely in the top three. I had such a blast
