Custom New Orleans Announces New Orleans’ First DMC Gay Wedding Division
NEW ORLEANS – “Today’s historic decision by the Supreme Court provides New Orleans a unique opportunity to be a top destination for gay weddings,” said Carling Dinkler III, President of Custom New Orleans, the city’s leading cultural destination management company. “We have created a division to meet the needs of those who choose the city for their weddings.”
“The company has avoided wading into the traditional wedding arena and has focused on corporate and cultural visitors,” says Morgan Molthrop, Custom’s Chief Creative Officer. “But this new niche is perfect for us because the the gay market tends to be affluent, educated and and culturally engaged.”
Custom New Orleans was created in 1983 to accommodate groups visiting New Orleans. Always a leader in its field, Custom is considered the top interpreter of the Big Easy’s cultural heritage to corporate, historical and art-oriented groups.
Dinkler is the past owner of Gray Line New Orleans and Franklin Printing; he is the grandson of the founder of the Dinkler Hotels, which included the historic St Charles Hotel.
Molthrop is author of “Jackson’s Playbook,” “Artist Spaces: New Orleans,” and “LOVE: New Orleans.”
