Corrine and Adam’s wedding at The Academy of the Sacred Heart

Corrine and Adam were married in a beautiful wedding at The Academy of the Sacred Heart located in the gorgeous garden district of New Orleans.    She is a NICU nurse who works with premature infants.  She loves to watch them grow and get well with the help of her team.  One of her sweet “kids” was all dressed up at the wedding, it was very special indeed!  This couple has a huge heart, and it’s obvious they were made for each other.  Read more about their story and their vendors at the bottom of the post:  enjoy:

How Adam proposed: 

 We were going to La Pavillon for lunch with both of our parents. He was going to take a half a day off of work and meet us there. He got dressed and kissed me good bye. I fell back asleep, he woke me with fresh coffee and told me he had a surprise for me. He told me he took the whole day off. He handed me the coffee to drink, after a few sips he took the cup from me. He told me he had another surprise, got down on one knee and proposed. It was special and sweet. 

What do you enjoy to do together? 

We like to travel, go fishing. We like festivals.   We like to try new places to eat and venture out in the french quarter. We like watching football together. We also enjoy spending time with our families and friends.

Melissa and Marco’s Southern Wedding at Melady House

Melissa and Marco traveled from Dallas to get married in Melissa’s hometown of Alexandria, LA at one of Central Louisiana’s premiere wedding venues, The Melady House. 

Their wedding was certainly unique and filled with their personalities.  From fun yard games (bean bag toss and lasso golf) to a pizza bar!  I loved working with these two, and it’s always an honor to document a wedding for a fellow photographer.  Check out Marco’s work at .

Find out more about them and their story below the images:  enjoy!

How did he propose? 

Marco took Melissa to a park in Fort Worth under the premise of taking some summer pictures. He arranged for a photographer friend to meet us. As we were posing for shots, Marco asked if there were ants in the grass behind them. With Melissa’s back turned (looking for the ants) Marco got down on one knee and proposed with a beautiful ring, that he had purchased for her in London (one of Melissa’s most favorite places). The moment was a happy, teary blur. Although we don’t really remember what all was said, the answer was yes!

How did you two meet? 

We met through a mutual friend October 2009 in Dallas, TX. Marco was dressed like Michael Jackson, sequin socks and all, for a Halloween art show. Melissa was misinformed about wearing costumes to the art show, but was wearing a pretty feather headband. There was immediate interest for us both, but a slight issue of an 13 hour geographic separation. Melissa lived in Baton Rouge, LA and Marco was in Midland, TX. Over the next year, we were great pen pals, chatting on facebook and texting. Flirting really. 

What do you enjoy doing together? 

We enjoy concerts. Traveling. Trying new restaurants. movies. Rangers baseball games. and most recently, riding bikes together.

Do you have a special song together? 

You are the best thing – Ray LaMontagne (click to listen)

What is your favorite restaurant?
