I was bartending at chimes, a bar in covington, and he was the beer salesman. He came in one night and we started talking about sports then ended up taking me to a pelicans game the weekend after we met. The rest is history!!

We both love the New Orleans Saints and pelicans!!

Jesse: loves the beach, her dogs and shopping, works as a sales rep for southern glazers wine and spirits

Robert: loves watching and playing soccer. Works as an on premise manager for champagne beverage.

How did the proposal go? Who proposed to who, were you surprised?
Robert proposed to Jesse outside the Superdome on December 28th 2016. He planned on going to a Pelicans game and wanted to send pictures of champions square to his friend in Memphis. The minute we walked down the stairs into Champion Square, he got down on one knee. He also had his best friend snap pictures of the proposal

Where was your ceremony held and why did you pick this site?
The ceremony was at immaculate conception Jesuit church. Robert chose this location because it was really beautiful, great location and his mom was friends with the wedding coordinator. Everything we heard about this location was nothing but perfect!

Where was your Reception held and why did you pick this site?
The reception was at club xliv in champion square. We choose this location because we hang out in there every saints pregame and that is the area where he proposed.

We Had A Live Painter, Glow Sticks That Kept The Children Entertained, Photo Booth, And A Fabulous Band!

Groovy 7 was the absolute best!! Couldn’t have asked for a better band!
