Love in New Orleans | Meryl & Deb

Perhaps it's the warm weather, or maybe it's the beignets, but New Orleans is always such a beautiful city to visit and capture love stories! The smells, the beignets (I feel like I mentioned them already but they really are so goooooood) the gorgeous greenery and the classic French Quarter make this city one of my favorites!
