Rooftop Louisiana Reception

"We choose the Shaw Center's fourth-floor terrace," Dawn says. "This was my compromise. Carson really wanted the Capitol Park, and I really wanted the Shaw Center. We both agreed we didn't want both the ceremony and reception in the same location, so this worked perfectly. The terrace overlooks the Mississippi River, which was great for sunset and our fireworks show."
