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!
