Real Wedding: Passaro-Webber
Jourdana Passaro and Robert “Cain” Webber said “I Do” in front of friends and family in a romantic, quintessential New Orleans-style wedding at the Hotel Monteleone. For the April 18, 2015 nuptials, Passaro dazzled in a fit and flare Essense of Australia gown. The groom and his men sported Vera Wang tuxedos with matching bow ties and the bridesmaids wore floor-length A-line Alvina Valenta gowns.
The Royal Dukes Band got the party started and a visit from the Kinfolk Brass Band included a traditional second line to complete the evening.
The Hotel Monteleone took care of everything from coordinating the day to the catering and the cake. The groom opted for cupcakes from Cake Café & Bakery instead of a traditional groom’s cake and the couple gave out Leah’s Pralines as guests said goodbye.
