What we want most for our wedding is to have all of our friends and family from near and far in the same room, and so, more than anything, we consider your presence to be our present. That said, if you would like to help us build our new home together, our registry can be found below:All gifts may be sent to:

New Orleans is replete with AirBNBs, hostels, and hotels, so there shouldn’t be any difficulty finding accommodation. Most hotels (and most likely your best deals) are located in the CBD (Central Business District) or French Quarter, which is a quick Uber or streetcar ride away from the Garden District (see Transportation).
We suggest using Google, Priceline, Expedia, TravelPony, or Hotwire to get good prices. (Tip: if you call the hotel directly after looking at prices on search engines, they will likely match that price, offer perks, or even discount it!)
However, here are some places in the Garden District that are close to the venue:
Auberge NOLA Hostel (It’s actually excellent. Though the site states you must have student ID, as long as you are <40 and don’t care about too much noise, you can stay.)
Budget to Moderate:
If you choose to stay closer to the French Quarter (you brave souls!) or the hip new hotels in the CBD, the St. Charles streetcar will bring you within blocks of our venue (Jackson Avenue Stop, 0.4 mi or 9 min walk from 1029 Jackson Ave). It costs 40 cents (YES CENTS) for one ride, 3 dollars for an unlimited 24-hour pass. Unfortunately, there is no current streetcar named Desire.
If walking from the streetcar stop is a problem, there is also a bus that can bring you from the St. Charles Ave streetcar stop to Magazine St on Jackson Ave (91, towards Walmart on Tchoupitoulas St. via Delgado College and Canal St).
The most cost effective options are Uber and the less evil Lyft, which are widely available in New Orleans. They DO pick up and drop off at the airport, for a slightly smaller fee than regular yellow cabs. If it’s your first time using either, use the links below to get credits towards your free first ride:
If you’re old school, or want that hipster ‘yellow cab/gypsy cab/holla back’ experience, here is a list of taxi companies.
Parking is nearly impossible in the French Quarter, but around the Garden District and other less touristy areas, is cheaper or free.
