How did you meet?
We met at the Endymion parade when we were 15 years old!
Ryan didn’t say ONE word to me that night but later that week I got a friend request on MYSPACE….and we’ve been together ever since!
How did the proposal go? Who proposed to who, were you surprised?
We had been dating for 8 years when Ryan proposed to me at the Bayou Country Super Fest in Baton Rouge, LA. He proposed to me right before the concert, infront of everyone with Mike the tiger in the background!
We were there to see Luke Bryan ~my favorite person in the world, next to my husband of course 😉 So baisically, Luke Bryan was at my engagement….
Where was your ceremony held and why did you pick this site?
St. Josephs Catholic Church-
I graduated from Mount Carmel and that is the church we had our graduation mass at in 2010, so it was just special to me. Not to mention it has the longest aisle in the south, so that was a plus too! More time for Ryan to admire my dress 😉
Who was your baker, what was the flavor of your cake? Was it delicious?!
La Louisiane- Our wedding cake was almond funfetti flavored and the grooms cake was red velvet. You can not go wrong with La Louisiane! Everything was AMAZING! Our guests are STILL talking about our cakes!
From the Bride – When you first saw the groom, what were you thinking/feeling?
I was in the back room of the church anxiously waiting for what felt like forever. Then the moment the church doors opened and I saw Ryan at the end of the aisle, I felt a calming vibe come over me. I literally locked eyes with him and didn’t look anywhere else. It was a moment/feeling that I will never forget.
From the groom – When you first saw the bride, what were you thinking/feeling?
“I was thinking that she was the most beautiful bride that I had ever seen and couldn’t wait until Fr. Beau announced us as husband and wife so I could officially spend my life with her.”- Ryan
