Sarah and Boone’s New Orleans Wedding

It’s not easy to decide where to have your wedding, but Sarah Levine and John (Boone)Tarlton knew right away that The Columns was the perfect place for them. After Sarah and Boone met in Baton Rouge—and quickly realized they were soul mates—they moved to New Orleans together. Their first home was down the street from The Columns, a quaint and enchanting Victorian hotel. They often went to the hotel’s lounge to enjoy a cocktail and people-watch in the charming atmosphere that seems to transport you back to a different time.

The Columns Hotel was built in 1883 by one of New Orleans’ greatest architects, Thomas Sully. It has a lot of the original surviving features, so it’s now on the National Register of Historic Places. The hotel is located in the luscious upper Garden District of New Orleans, overlooking the St. Charles streetcar line. The hotel’s locale gives it an ageless feel within a modern crowd, the perfect backdrop for the wedding photos by Impressions Photography.

Their wedding reflected the building’s history with a lot of unique Louisiana details, like a New Orleans jazz band and locally grown Kumquats on their cake. Sarah and Boone’s wedding connected the past with the future through local inspiration that perfectly summed up the city where they continue to fall more and more in love each day.
