Le Pavillion Wedding: Katherine + Andrew

If you could sum up your wedding in three words, what would they be?
Romantic, Perfect, FUN!

Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
We were originally going to do two different locations for the wedding and reception, but when we visited Le Pavillon, we decided it was the perfect location for several reasons: It was beautiful and grand on the inside, it had two separate rooms for ceremony and reception, and it was so convenient for all of our guests!

What was your favorite wedding detail?
My favorite wedding detail is the blue heart that was sewn on the inside of my dress. My dad passed away a year and a half ago. This heart, cut from one of his favorite shirts, made me feel like he was with me the whole day.

What is your favorite wedding memory from the day?
My favorite wedding memory is our first dance. It was such an intimate moment where we forgot about the hundreds of people in the room and just focused on each other and the special moment we were sharing together.

How did you incorporate your personalities into your wedding celebration?
We both love LSU and we both love to party, so Andrew’s cake was a replica of Tiger Stadium made by Gambino’s bakery. It was amazing AND delicious! We also incorporated our personalities in the music and food selection. Chris Logan kept the dance floor full all night and we added macaroni and cheese to the menu because we are both cheese addicts!

What is your wedding song?
“Perfect” – Ed Sheeran
