Celebrating Three Decades of Love: Our 30th Wedding Anniversary in New Orleans

As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm glow over the historic streets of New Orleans, my spouse and I found ourselves immersed in the vibrant tapestry of a city that holds a special place in our hearts. This wasn't just any trip; it was a celebration of three decades of love, commitment, and shared memories that have defined our journey together.

New Orleans, with its rich cultural heritage and soul-stirring music, provided the perfect backdrop for our 30th wedding anniversary. The city's unique blend of French, African, and Creole influences added an extra layer of magic to our celebration. We strolled hand in hand through the iconic French Quarter, reveling in the lively atmosphere of street performers, jazz bands, and the intoxicating scent of Creole cuisine wafting through the air.

One highlight of our anniversary adventure was an enchanting afternoon tour thru the Garden District. The garden district holds a special place in our hearts ever since the 1st time we visited in the 90's while in our early 20's. We even stopped in at the local book store there to chat with friend of Anne Rice and bought as book our two as well. Sadly the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 was and has been closed to the public for some time now. Truly sad that visitors can't visitor once of the most famous that has been featured there out books and movies over the years. I want to thank Free Tours by Foot - New Orleans for the excellent tour. Daniel was and excellent tour guide.

I am not sharing any photos of our trip since they are personal ones for us. But I will however share a video I shot on Bourbon Street on the opening night of Mardi Gras this year. Forgive the movements and flaws in the video. We were there for ourselves. This is just to document the time there. NOTE: this was shot with the iPhone 15 Pro Max, with the Samllrig phones case, Black magic Phone app and Moment anamorphic lens.

Our time in New Orleans wasn't just about exploring the city's historic landmarks and savoring its delectable cuisine; it was also an opportunity for reflection and gratitude. We visited the St. Louis Cathedral, a symbol of resilience and faith, where we took a moment to express our gratitude for the journey we've undertaken together. As we stood before the cathedral, hand in hand, we marveled at the enduring strength of our bond and the countless blessings that have accompanied us throughout the years.

In the end, our 30th wedding anniversary in New Orleans was more than just a celebration; it was a reaffirmation of the love that has grown and flourished over the years. The city's vibrant energy, coupled with the timeless charm of our relationship, created an experience that will forever hold a special place in our hearts. As we boarded the plane back home, we carried with us not only the memories of our time in New Orleans but also a renewed sense of appreciation for the journey we've shared and the adventures that lie ahead.
