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.
