Meghan and Brad’s wedding at Lafayette’s City Club

 

Meghan and Brad began their special day in River Ranch.  While Brad was getting ready at a private residence, Meghan and her girls spent the morning at the beautiful Carriage House.  They met up at St Johns Cathedral for a beautiful and sacred ceremony- then proceeded back to River Ranch to celebrate their wedding at Lafayette’s City Club!

We were joined by New Orleans’ Bride Film to help video this special day, we can’t wait to see what they captured!

Q. How did you meet and how long have you been together ?
A. I was at nurse at the local charity hospital, LSU, in Shreveport, and one of Brad’s college roommates, Frankie, was a physician at LSU. We had a Christmas Party at Frankie’s house in December of 2010, and after the party, we all went to Superior Steakhouse. Frankie told everyone that his friend, Wood (Brad’s last name) was coming to meet us. From the second I laid eyes on Brad, I knew he was the one for me! Brad walked in the door with a V-neck sweater on over an oxford shirt with slacks. He was as preppy as they come–so my style!! Anyway, we had the BEST time EVER!! Brad was a TON of fun!! Everyone went home after we left the Steakhouse. Two weeks later, my best friend and I were eating at a pizza place in Shreveport, and I was telling her about that night at the Steakhouse. I just so happen to look in the bar area, and there was Brad!! He was sitting alone at the bar, watching sports on the TV. I yelled his name like an idiot. He sat down at the table with us and visited. I knew from that moment on that we were meant to be together! Brad ended up calling me a few weeks later, and the rest is HISTORY! :)

Our first date was January 29, 2011, and we’ve been inseparable ever since!

Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details! 

A. Wellllllll….. I wear a size 3.5 ring, and because of that, the jeweler had to custom make my engagement ring which as you can imagine, totally stressed Brad out. What if I don’t get the right ring? What if she hates it, and then I’m stuck with it? He told me that he struggled with how to propose and what the best thing to do was, so here it goes….
One RANDOM Wednesday at 6:45, Brad’s work alarm went off. Brad got up just like any normal work day, let our dog, Rosie, outside to potty! After, he put Rosie in bed with me, and then he got into the shower. He finished showering, and he came to get Rosie to take her back outside. I was absolutely confused because he had just taken her to potty, but whatever, I was so tired that I didn’t care. He brought Rosie back inside and put her back on the bed. Rosie was a puppy (10 months old), so she was VERY hyper. She was jumping ALL over me, while I was trying to sleep. I was getting frustrated, but then I noticed a red light on her collar. I said, “Brad, what is that red light on Rosie?” He, of course, played dumb. I sat up (just a reminder–it was about 7:15 in the morning) to see what it was, and I saw a plastic, pink, light up ring with a note attached. My first thought was “NO WAY!!! I KNOW this isn’t happening now!” I sat up to read the note, which I couldn’t concentrate on whatsoever, and once I turned around, Brad was down on one knee asking me to marry him!
Once the whole proposal was done, he explained why he did things the way he did them! I’m SOOO excited that he did, because I ended up with my dream ring and my dream guy!

Alexis and her girls got ready at the Beauty Lounge (A Shawn Gordon Salon) on South Peters in the Warehouse District, while Jon and his guys got ready at the Hyatt.  We love Jon’s socks (but we don’t really care for the two  pairs of ‘Bama socks- yuck!)   And how glamorous are Lexi and her girls, wow!

Jennifer and Clayton’s Rural Life Museum wedding at the Orangerie

Jennifer and Clayton were married in a Rural Life Museum wedding at the Orangerie.   It was rustic.  It was chic.  It was amazing!

Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details!
A. We took a vacation in mid December, to meet his brand new nephew and to take my son to the Lego store for Christmas for a Star Wars Death Star. We were staying with my closest friend from law school. Late one night after dinner with family, Clayton and I snuck away to Central Park. It was freezing cold and I was hoping for snow the entire time. His plan was to take me ice skating. Like all good plans, they went awry. The rink was closed and there was not a single soul in the park. We did see a large rat and some other unwelcoming woodland creatures, possibly rats as well. I looked at it as an adventure, never expecting to be proposed to. I picked up sticks to throw over the bridge to test the thickness of the ice beneath Bow Bridge. He was frustrated with my inability to keep still, pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him. Immediately thereafter, he asked me if he should have been on one knee. It was the sweetest, most awkward, memorable moment of our relationship. I’m smiling goofy while I type this.
Q. Who is your Cake Artist?

Q. Where did you buy your wedding dress?
Q. Who is your Florist ?
