Brian Keyser reports back from his recent trip to a New Orleans wedding on this week’s episode of How to Behave. As always, Hannah Howard is in the house, and Brian and Hannah are also joined by the newlyweds Liv Rooth and David Wells. On the phone is New Orleans-based wedding planner Anthony Lala to give his perspective on New Orleans culture and wedding traditions. Find out what goes into planning a destination wedding, and why Liv and David decided to host their ceremony in New Orleans. Also, why did Liv and David decide to write their own vows? Hear about the decline of certain wedding staples such as bridal parties and bouquet rituals, and hear how a non-traditional wedding can put guests at ease and add a personal touch. This program has been sponsored by White Oak Pastures. Thanks to Jon Lundbom & Big Five Chord for today’s theme music.

“When you see a couple say the traditional vows to each other, you can tell it’s one of the most personal, beautiful things in each of their lives.” [20:00]
