I live in DC, but I’m from NOLA and thinking about a NOLA wedding. I’d be more than happy to help you. What price ranges are you looking for for these vendors?

I’m in New Orleans as well.  I booked Brandy Gomez-Duplessis of BGD Make-up Artistry.  She is not the fastest respondent but I think that is due to the fact that she (1) works in NY sometimes and (2) her line of work is not limited to the bridal industry.

Anyways, this make-up artist (Afr Amer vendor) was recommended to me.  She can do anything from “natural” to “high fashion”.  Her prices aren’t bad either.

Check out her website – http://www.bgdmakeupartistry.com

Good luck 🙂

if you want a jazz band i can pull up my old list. do you have a photog or cake? i’m not AA so i can’t recommend hair or makeup, but i’ve done plenty of research on everything else! my venue includes catering and doc though, so i haven’t looked for that either.

I had the same dilemma. I am from Los Angeles and my FH is from New Orleans. At first I wanted to have the wedding out there, but it became such a pain in the butt sourcing vendors and venues because I wasn’t there to view anything. Needless to say, I ended up planning the wedding in L.A.

I am however, incorporating New Orleans flair. I just found a second-line band in L.A. *yay* I’m ordering the parasols from a vendor on Esty, and the invitations, cake, and other stationary will bare the fleur di lis.
