New Orleans Wedding Couple Kissing

Watch: New Orleans Second Line Weddings

Have you ever walked down the street and see lovers showing out like this? Some were taught to shun public affection, don’t kiss in public, and so on. But in New Orleans, you can feel free to take your love to the streets and dance in the name of love!

There’s nothing like a New Orleans Second Line but a Second Line Wedding! I chase em down every chance I get. To be able to witness this public celebration of love is magical and is proof that love walks the streets and lingers in the Nola air.

Second Line’s also are part of the city’s wedding tradition. The wedding second line celebrates the newlyweds as they embark on a new life together. The mainline leading the parade for a wedding is made up of the married couple, the brass band, and usually a grand marshal. The Second Line is the wedding party and anyone who want to join the celebration. I always join in on the love celebration, dancing, singing, and snapping away.
