There is no greater love than one born through friendship. Our friendship was born through Habitat for Humanity where I worked and John was a volunteer. One fall day in 2006, we stopped to chat outside the building as John was going to a Construction Leadership meeting and I was leaving for the day. I was going through a rough time and so was he, so we decided to go for a cocktail to cry on each other’s shoulder. The rest is history! As our love and relationship grew, we began to discover so many similarities in our childhood, our personalities and our spirituality. It became clear that our relationship was destiny. We are true soul mates!
John and I both realize that happiness is not promised or guaranteed in this life. We feel very blessed to have found each other in this crazy world. We will attempt to embody the phrase “Live Well-Laugh Often-Love Much” and enjoy every minute we have together!
The first trip we ever took together was to New Orleans. We fell in love with its rhythm. The food, the music, the history and the culture is the essence of the celebration of life. Most everyone we met were very friendly and welcoming, and most of all, we had a BALL! Each time we go back, we fall in love with NOLA even more. Neither of us had ever felt so at home! With the recent devastation of the hurricanes, the world had opportunity to see the resilience that this city has. We hope that our union will mimic the strength that the city of New Orleans has demonstrated, and we are so looking forward to sharing our favorite city with all of you. We are sure you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Our wedding will be held on Saturday October 5th at 3:30PM, with the reception immediately following. The venue we have selected for both is the Paris Room. The Paris Room is the 2nd floor of a historic four story mansion that was built in 1830, and has some of the highest ceiling s in New Orleans. This Paris Room sits atop Café Soule, a French Café that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Paris Room is located 720 St. Louis Avenue, right in the heart of the French quarter just 1 block from Bourbon Street.
Our wedding and reception will be filled with fun and flava, compliments of New Orleans! From the food to the music, it will be Cajun and NOLA tradition all the way, culminating with a New Orleans traditional “Second Line”! Get ready for lots of fun, folks!
