Casey and Matt’s New Orleans Wedding … Coming Soon !

Casey and Matt’s New Orleans Wedding … Coming Soon !

From a surprise proposal at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo to a beautiful Brandon Hall Wedding- Kaylee and Parker’s love story:

Kaylee and Parker were married in a beautiful Brandon Hall plantation wedding in Natchez, MS.   Everything was absolutely stunning.

Q. How did you two meet?

A. Parker and I both went to Mississippi State University where he was a member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity and I was involved with Kappa Delta Sorority. Throughout most of college we shared the same groups of friends yet he and I were never introduced to one another. We also lived across the street from one another for an entire year and still never met. It was not until my junior year of college (his senior year) that we ended up going on the same spring break trip with all of our friends to Jamaica (SB-2009!). One night we found ourselves standing next to each other and just began talking. After that night he and I became almost inseparable and we started dating shortly upon return to school. I jokingly like to call him my “spring break lover” because of how we met.
Q. How did he/she ask you out for your first date?
A. “SO UMMM… Do you want to meet my family over Easter and go to the Death Cab concert with me?”
Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details!
A. I have to brag on Parker by saying that I had the MOST ORIGINAL/ AWESOME proposal ever! My grandparents live in Mobile, Alabama and one day they called me to tell me that the Gulf Coast Zoo was bringing in two Bengal tiger cubs that people could sign up to play with. Once we were signed up I planned the whole trip there and made all of the arrangements. We got to the zoo on April 13 (Friday the 13th!…..good thing neither one of us are superstitious) and proceeded to check in with the ladies who were in charge of the tigers. We were told to go and wait outside for our turn but once we got outside Parker told me to hold on a second and went back in to were the ladies were – which should have been my first clue that something weird was going on but I thought he was just using the restroom – I was clueless. Once we were near the tiger area we could see the cubs in a small room behind a glass wall with four people in there playing with them. The zoo reserves four spots per tiger cub “encounter” so I assumed that there would be another couple that would be in the tiger area with us. Once it became time for me and Parker’s turn to play with the cubs I noticed that there were no other people coming in with us. I thought this was odd considering how the spaces filled up so quickly when we were booking our spots – yet I was still basically clueless. Once we were finally in the room with the cubs the zookeeper came and took one of them and said that he would be right back with it. I just assumed that he was taking the one out to feed him. He returned shortly after with the same cub yet a sparkly ribbon was tied around it’s neck. He walked over to me and placed the baby tiger into my lap. I wish I could say that I realized what was happening at this point but I still did not!! Parker finally turns to me and says “Kaylee why does the cub have a ribbon around his neck?” I responded with ” I don’t know maybe to make him cute.”…….. CLUELESS! Finally Parker had to grab the ring that was tied to the ribbon on the tiger and put it right in front of my eyes. I finally realized what was happening and he then asked me to marry him. My first response was “Seriously?!” due to complete shock and surprise of what was actually going on. After a second of gathering myself I started yelling out “YES! YES!” and then I cried and kissed him. The people who are watching us play with the cubs behind the glass began clapping while kids started running around screaming that “people are getting married with tigers!!!” haha. Needless to say I thought it was absolutely perfect and I could not have imagined it any other way.

Enjoy some of our favorite images from their special day:

Sadari And Jared’s Southern Oaks Wedding

A Southern Oaks Wedding:

Sadari and Jared were married at Southern Oaks in a beautiful southern wedding. We just loved this couple! Sadari looked elegant and Jared was charming as this southern bride and groom said, “I Do” in style.

More about Sadari and Jared:

Q. How did you two meet?

A. Our families have known each other for years. We knew of each other but had no personal relationship whatsoever. My family moved and I had not seen Sadari for about 10-15 years. I had just got back from Italy and decided to go for a run on the morning of July 4th. I went to Lasalle Park and as I was finishing my workout I noticed a young lady running around the park several times at a pretty impressive pace. I assumed she was some professional athlete doing an offseason workout. I was determined to make sure our paths crossed but didn’t know how to get her attention. Finally she stopped for water and made her way to the area where I was stretching. She walked up to man and thought I looked familiar and she said “Are you?” And I interrupted her and said “Sadari?” And that is how we “met.” Two people running in the park at 5am on the 4th of July.

Q. Where did you go on your first date?

A. Houston’s

Q. Tell us about the proposal!

A. The proposal was random and unplanned. I had the ring for months but was trying to figure out when and how to do it. We ate a typical dinner at a restaurant we frequent in river ridge. Then we were full so I suggested we go walk off the full-feeling from the food before we go to sleep. Of course, we went to walk in Lasalle Park. After one lap I, I stopped in the area where we met and asked her to re-enact how we met….Then we laughed, then I asked her if she would continue to walk with me before we left. She said yes. And then I said “no, i want you to walk by my side for the rest of our lives” (and dropped to one knee).

Q. Tell us about your careers.

A. Sadari has a chemistry degree and is currently finishing her masters in biology. She currently works as a chemist at Intertek in St. Rose.

Jared has an English degree and is in his final year of law school. He is currently a full-time student. He hopes to pursue a career in sports law.
