le réveillon









Le réveillon is an intimate dinner we host every New Year’s Eve, and it is a special tradition for my family. The word “réveillon” means awakening, and I’ve always loved the concept. It’s an old French custom experiencing a resurgence-in the States for instance, you can’t escape it if visiting New Orleans during the holidays. Regardless of how you ring in the New Year, I hope to inspire your event! I was honored to have our fête featured on Camille Styles-check it out here!

wishing you all a happy new year!!

a huge MERCI to the talented Courtney Apple for capturing the evening so beautifully
