Tarah & Sean in New Orleans, LA
Tarah and Sean’s wedding had glamorous vintage style, but with all the fun trappings of a New Orleans party.
The Bride: Tarah Despain, 31, an actress
The Groom: Sean McElwee, 29, a filmmaker
The Date: March 20
What happens with an actress marries a filmmaker? The Los Angeles-based couple wanted a timeless, yet vintage-inspired style but also made sure to incorporate “the sass and personality of New Orleans,” where Tarah is originally from, she says. So they brought in a jazz band, made a goofy welcome video and chose elegant and classic decor details. The result: A totally glam event with lots of fun touches.
