Wedding "wow" factor
: Dance your way into marriage with the unique New Orleans wedding tradition of the second line parade. Stemming from African American jazz funerals, it signifies the beginning of the life between the bride and groom. A second line jazz band leads the wedding party and guests from the church to their reception venue, making it an unforgettable kickoff to the wedding festivities.
