A word from the bride
How they met: Ian and I met at Baton Rouge Magnet High School. We were both in the same Environmental Science class. He was a senior, and I was a sophomore. I was very into Ian. He took a little longer to be interested in me. He signed my yearbook and told me to call him. I did. We started hanging out more and more when Ian went to college at LSU as a freshman and I was a junior at Baton Rouge Magnet High School. After about a year of friendship, we each confessed how much our feelings had grown beyond friendship. Ian asked if I would be his girlfriend and I happily accepted. We dated for 7 years before we were married.
How Ian proposed: While we were on vacation around Asheville, NC, we went to a waterfall filmed in Last of the Mohicans. It was beautiful and since it was early May we had the whole waterfall to ourselves. After watching the water and looking out over the mountains we sat down to rest. Ian got in front of me and asked me to marry him. I was so taken aback and surprised that I asked him tons of questions about who knew, did my parents know, etc. and when I was satisfied, I said yes.
What are some favorite moments from your wedding day? One of my favorite parts of the wedding day was having a violinist play “The Gael” from Last of the Mohicans while I walked down the aisle to Ian. It reminded me of our trip, his proposal, and all the fun we had. It was the perfect way to begin my life with him.
The day that we had for the wedding was beautiful. It can be quite grey in January. We managed to have a perfectly clear bluebird day without clouds and plenty of sunshine. I know it will make for terrific pictures and a wonderful memory because the day was so perfect.
I loved dancing with my husband to “I Love You (For Sentimental Reasons)” by Nat King Cole. We enjoyed learning the dance for our wedding. We liked it so much we now take dance lessons once a week in various styles.
I could go on and on. There are so many things that I loved about the day. I am just so fortunate that I am with my wonderful, considerate and loving husband and look forward to the many memories we will make together for years to come.
