Funky Weddings: St. Tammany Trace

  The St. Tammany Trace is a long active park across the lake from New Orleans. It is used by hikers, joggers, bike riders, and other people for exercise and to get out side and have fun. Why not get married there? Ask your hiking or biking friends to gather, obey the posted rule, arrange for an officiant, have a  marriage license and enjoy a unique elopement across the lake. See more on the St Tammany Trace here and more on weddings here
 A fine spot to start is at the Abita Springs entry next to the Abita Brew Pub, refreshments are near. See more about Abita Springs here
