Maison Lafitte | New Orleans Wedding Photographer
How did you meet?
Kenny and I met at the church we currently attend. As time went on, I randomly started to catch him stare at me. At first, I was weirded out! Until I realized he was crushing on me. So, one Friday evening at a Lifegroup we have he finally introduced himself to me. From there, we talked as friends until he called me after church one day and asked if I wanted to go have dinner with him. It was so funny because he was about to leave for Mexico to go on a missions trip, so he called at like 12 am because he said he couldn’t wait until he got back. So that week we went on a casual date and the rest is history.
“It was the sweetest night! Oh, and he had a hidden photographer. So many little details made the night unforgettable.”
How did he propose?
The second date that Kenny and I took was a picnic at the park. He made homemade chicken noodle soup and brought the whole set up. So for our proposal, he secretly set up this entire date all over again complete with the chicken noodle soup, candles, flowers, music, and so much more. He told me we were going somewhere for my birthday, but I would have to be blind-folded. I was so anxious the entire day! When it was finally time to leave he picked me up and blind-folded me and drove around until we got to the park. I had NO idea where we were. Whenever we got to the park we ate and reminisced about the date we had there and he told me he had something for me. He reached into the picnic basket and pulled out the ring box. (Cue the boy scout club members cheering HAHA). After, he RE blind-folded me and told me there was another surprise. We arrive at my grandparents and my entire friends and family were there waiting for us. It was the sweetest night! Oh, and he had a hidden photographer.
“I loved our entire day. It was the perfect weather, everything. We spent the day starting our forever with some of our favorite people.”
What has been the most stressful part of planning a wedding?
Honestly, nothing has really stressed me out. Everything has gone smoothly. BUT, I am sure there will be something along the way that will stress me out. I try not to stress too much about anything, I know in the end the day will be perfect.
What were your highlights of the day? Were there any surprises?
I loved our entire day. It was the perfect weather, everything. We spent the day starting our forever with some of our favorite people.
What made you decide to get married at Maison Lafitte?
We had our ceremony and reception at Maison Lafitte in Mandeville. We loved this place because we could have both events at the same location. Our venue was so quaint, we absolutely loved the atmosphere!
