Amy and Bailey Know How To Celebrate On Thier Big Day !

How they met:

A. I remember the first time I saw Amy was in the halls of St. Thomas More Catholic High School. I thought she was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. After gathering my courage, I spoke to Amy (a cheerleader) at an STM football game in September 2003. I caught her running to the bathroom holding the side of her face. I believe my words were, “Hey, I saw that girl fall on you! Are you okay?” I took her on our first date in October 2003. We got Chick-Fil-A to go and ate it as a pic-nic by a lake. Our high school fling became more serious as she followed me to Baton Rouge to attend LSU. It was during our years in college that I knew I would one day marry her. Not only was she gorgeous, she shared similar professional aspirations and family ideals. Or maybe it was from our spontaneous dance parties, her love for fishing in Toledo Bend and Grand Isle, or her inability to take life too seriously. Over 9 years after our first date, I proposed to Amy under an oak tree overlooking the water at Rip Van Winkle Gardens in New Iberia, LA. Both of our families were hiding and taking pictures for the surprise. By the time we say ‘I Do’, we will have been together for over a decade. It’s more than a wedding ceremony; it’ll be an anniversary party celebrating the past and future with the love of my life, my best friend, and my partner in crime.

Rachel & Tim

Rachel and Tim’s Proposal Story:


Rachel’s favorite time of the year is Christmas. She loves the whole celebration and spirit of the season. Knowing this, I decided that the proposal would be in December when the City was fully decorated.  There are so many beautifully venues in New Orleans but I ultimately decided on the Bontanical Gardens and Christmas in the Oaks. The night was perfect.  We walked from our place in Midcity to the Gardens and strolled around a bit as I tried to find the perfect spot.  Because it was such a nice night near Christmas, it was pretty crowded when we arrived.  It was actually much more crowded than I anticipated and it made me a little more nervous than I already was.  Fortunately, I directed us to a spot, took her hand, looked her in the eyes and told her that she was the best thing that has ever happened to me and that I wanted to spend my life with her.  Then I dropped to one knee and asked if she would marry me.  She said yes! People around us stopped and congratulated us.  We planned to go to Ralph’s for dinner after but Rachel didn’t know that I had called our closest family and friends to meet us.  Upon arrival  everyone was there to share the night with us!  I couldn’t have imagined it happening anymore perfect.

Kayla and Jordan’ Fab New Orleans Wedding Part 1 of 2

Q. How did you two meet? 

A. We have been knowing each other since about 2nd grade as his dad refereed as a hobby at a Skating Rink that my dad used to own. We fell out of touch through the years and then reconnected my Freshman year of high school, which was his sophomore year. At the time, I was dating someone else, and Jordan asked my boyfriend at the time for my number. Apparently the guy I was dating at the time was not too bright as he gave Jordan my phone number. We kept in touch through high school as friends. At the end of my junior year, my boyfriend and I broke up and Jordan and I started dating.
Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details! 
A. He proposed to me at Celebration in the Oaks in City Park on Saturday, December 8, 2012. Although we were extremely busy that weekend, Jordan insisted on going to Celebration in the Oaks Saturday night. By the time we got there at 9:30 at night, the line to get in was ridiculously long and I kept begging to go home and go back another night because I was absolutely exhausted from such a hectic weekend. Jordan would not have it. He insisted on us waiting in line for 45 minutes to get in. We finally entered into City Park, and we were walking around viewing all the beautiful lights with his cousin and her fiancé  After walking through an archway filled with lights in the botanical garden for the THIRD time, Jordan asked me if I would like to take a picture. Jordan’s cousin took one picture of us and then Jordan said “Let’s take another one, I promise you this one will be better.” As he said that, I looked over at him and he was on bended knee and asked me to marry him. Little did I know, we had walked through the archway three times because he was waiting for all of the people to clear out and on the third time we were the only people in the archway. In that very moment that he asked me to marry him, about 15 people made the corner and were walking into the archway. I started balling crying and Jordan turned bright red and said “Are you going to say yes?” He stood up and we hugged and kissed and everyone started clapping and telling us congratulations. It was very romantic and a moment I will remember forever.
Q. Do you have a special song together?
