Ryan + Rebecca | New Orleans Downtown Latrobe’s Wedding

How did you meet?
We met at work. Ryan is an Anesthesiologist and I am an ICU nurse. I had a patient who was not doing so well and Ryan came in to save the day!

Tell us about the proposal! 
Ryan surprised me with a stay-cation at the Ritz Carlton. He made an appointment for me to have a mani/pedi and then I met him at the bar where he told me they had upgraded us to a penthouse suite! As we were getting ready for our dinner reservation he gave me a present for our 2 year anniversary and inside the coach purse was the engagement ring!

Where did you get married?
Our ceremony was at Latrobe’s. It was such a beautiful venue!

Where was your Reception held and why did you pick this site?
Our reception was also held at Latrobe’s. When we started looking at venues, Latrobe’s was our first tour and we fell in love with it and canceled all of our other tours!

What was your favorite part of the day?
My favorite part of the whole day was having a first look with Ryan in exchange alley. I will never forget the look on his face when we saw me!

When you first saw the groom, what were you thinking/feeling?
Pure bliss! He looked so handsome and happy and I was just so excited for him to finally be my husband!

What was the inspiration behind your wedding decor?
We wanted simple but elegant.

Did it really go by as quickly as everyone says?
It absolutely did go by so quickly!

We want to hear YOUR advice for future brides.
Don’t stress! Things will definitely go wrong and not according to your plans but just enjoy your day!
