How did you and Adam meet?
Adam and I met in our first year of law school, ten years ago. We were friends throughout law school and started dating shortly after we graduated.
How did Adam propose?
On Christmas, he made a scrap book/Christmas card chronicling our relationship and at the end of the book was a wedding ring, with “will you marry me?” It was perfect and very memorable because I am a Christmas fanatic 🙂
Most memorable moments from your wedding day?
The first look on our balcony at the Bourbon Orleans and the second line – that was the highlight of the day for all our attendees as well!
Where did guests travel from to attend your special day?
We live in San Diego and chose NOLA because it is our favorite US city. We were there for the first time together four years ago to celebrate my 30th birthday and have been back several times since. We love New Orleans (the people, the culture, the music, the food!) and couldn’t imagine a better place to celebrate our nuptials 🙂
It was unexpectedly cold when we were there! We were in New Orleans for six days total and it rained every other day but for our wedding day! We lucked out!
