Voodoo... Nuf said.

Why New Orleans? The answer is tragically simple. Slaves, when they were brought over from Africa, were brought in large quantities to Louisiana and many #Caribbean islands, where the then largest plantations were. They were kept in massive groups, and many families, language groups, and even those taken from the same villages were able to still keep and maintain their African cultures and traditions, and pass them down for generations. The slaves primarily brought over in massive quantities at that time to Louisiana were primarily from West Africa.

While the rites were carried over from West Africa, the language morphed into French Creole. Louisiana voodoo venerates ancestors and instills great respect for elders.

Marie Laveau and her daughter, Marie Laveau II probably became the best known voodoo priestesses of the 19th century.

Born of a white plantation owner and his black mistress, Marie LaVeau was a free woman of color. She had access to many different parts of New Orleans society, and developed a huge following. Her St. John's rituals on the shores of Lake Ponchartrain drew thousands, showing her status as voodoo queen.

And what of gris gris?

Voodoo... Nuf said.

Amulets, charms, whatever you want to compare them to. A staple of NOLA voodoo.

Getting married underwater sounds fun and romantic until you dive a little deeper and realize what a commitment it is to really do the thing!

Take the ultimate plunge

I guess there are ways and ways to 'do' an underwater wedding. If you're really into scuba diving then you go that route, which might be a bit extreme for some and for which you also have to have a certification. 

Take the ultimate plunge

There are some beautiful and no doubt memorable wedding pictures taken of just married couples floating at the bottom of fancy hotel pools taken by adventurous wedding photographers. It seems a little gimmicky but like it could be a bunch of fun.

Ultimately, the best bet might be to have a little bit of everything, instead.
