Wedding color palette
The bridesmaids’ dresses were onyx, and our centerpieces were gold mercury glasses and candles with mauve and blush flowers.
Describe your wedding in three words
Elegant, joyful, humbling
How did you and Reid meet, and how did he propose?
Reid and I met at his cousin’s debutante ball. However, we did not date until a year later when we exchanged numbers at an LSU tailgate. Reid proposed in the LSU Quad by a beautiful oak tree. Our dear friend was a surprise photographer and our dog was there wearing a bandana that said “She said yes!”
First Dance song
I Wanna Dance with Somebody – Ben Rector (acoustic version)
My cake was alternating layers of almond butter cream and carrot cake. Reid’s cake was chocolate butter cream.
Most memorable moment from your wedding day
Our second line with our family and friends down Poydras. We all danced down the street and continued our stroll into the lobby of The Le Pavillon Hotel.
