Kristin and David were a love story in the making! They were both born and raised in New Orleans.  They went to school together in the third grade and then went their separate ways until they were reunited in November 2014 when Kristin reached out to David to extend her condolences of him losing his dad. Kristin had lost her dad June 20, 1997.   From there, things blossomed and they were officially a couple in February 2015.  Not even a  year later the happy couple was engaged!

How did the proposal go? Who proposed to who, were you surprised?
The proposal took place November 27, 2015 (Black Friday). David proposed to me at my mothers home surrounded by family which I thought was there to celebrate a late Thanksgiving. He typed a BEAUTIFUL poem (which I had to read because he said he would be able to make it through LOL) which ended in “will you marry me?”

Where was your ceremony held and why did you pick this site?
The ceremony was held at St. Maria Goretti which is both of our families church and where both of our dad’s funerals took place.

Where was your Reception held and why did you pick this site?
The reception took place at Chateau Golf and Country Club. We selected this site due to the wide variety of food, space, environment, service and of course the beautiful chandelier.

Did it really go by as quickly as everyone says?
THE DAY FLEW BY ONCE I PUT MY DRESS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did you do a first look? If so how did you feel about it? If not, do you wish you had?
YES!
I’M SOOOOO HAPPY WE DID A FIRST LOOK!!!
Time flies, so we were able to get pics together as well as a moment away from it all before everything started.

What was your first dance song? Why this song?
Bebe Winans- Found Love.  The words to the song are very beautiful.

We want to hear YOUR advice for future brides.
Everything will NOT go as planned the day of your wedding.

Please stay relaxed as possible, drink some wine, and go with the flow.

Whatever happens, happens and the only thing that matters is the union you will establish with your HUSBAND.

LIVE IN THE MOMENT AND DO NOT ANYONE STEAL YOUR JOY!!!

FOCUS ON YOUR HUSBAND!!!

Make a list a month in advance of things to pack for your hotel stay/ bridal prep. Double/triple check the list to ensure you have everything.

DO A FIRST LOOK!!!! You’ll still have jitters walking down the aisle!

Your wedding day will be a day you will remember for the rest of your life, make it one to remember!!!!
