Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
We are both very New Orleans. Ryan and I both love the city (we’re originally from there) so we decided to have something both intimate, special to us, and unique.

What was your favorite wedding purchase?
My dress! 

What was your best wedding day memory?
My favorite memory is after all the craziness of the day has passed was when we were sitting in the limo going to take pictures. While sitting there, I remember just talking and looking at our rings while holding hands. I am so happy to be married. I really loved saying our vows, our first look and dancing at the reception to our song.

How did you incorporate your personalities into the wedding?
Our vows and the blue ribbon had our initials on it! Also, having Charlotte there was the perfect way to celebrate with our little family! 

What is your wedding song?
“Not a Bad Thing “by Justin Timberlake.  I walked down the aisle to “Photograph” by Ed Sheeran which is also a song very special to us.
