Classic New Orleans Night

St. Louis Cathedral and Omni Royal Orleans // New Orleans, LA

"Bart is an orthopedic surgeon and every year for their graduation dinner they "roast" the graduating residents. Last summer (6/27) was Bart's year to graduate so he had planned out that during his roast, he was going to ask me to marry him...the guy who roasted Bart did it in a really cool way and sort of tee'ed up the proposal for Bart. I was so shocked! The graduation dinner was in the ballroom at The Ritz in front of the entire program...as soon as he got down on one knee, & I said yes, I turned around & my parents had flown in from Dallas and several of my close friends were walking through the door as well! We all walked over the the Jeremy Davenport lounge where he had arranged for Jeremy to announce us as soon as we walked in & then Jeremy cleared the dance floor and sang "It had to be you." It was so sweet & well planned!"
