The sun at Houmas House and Gardens was absolutely perfect on Mollie and Ryan’s wedding day! We loved hearing these two tell us the story of how they first met working together as nurses.
"Easter weekend I was expecting another fabulous weekend with my parents and Clay in Breckenridge, CO, where my parents honeymooned and now own a house. And the weekend was SO much more than I expected. On Saturday, after finding out Clay just flew face first in the snow after a snowmobile ride with my dad, we decide to go get drinks before dinner. We decided on a new restaurant in town, and I order a glass of champagne. Everyone asked what I was celebrating, and I said LIFE. Little did I know.
Once we reach our walking path near the river, Clay then turns to look at me and says, “This is it.” I say, yes I know it is, you’re the one, etc. He proceeds to say, “No, really…” and pulls out the ring box from his jacket. I blink a couple of times to make sure what I’m seeing is real, and I am speechless when I see the amazing ring he picked. I ask him if he is serious. He is, as he gets down on his knee and asks me to marry him!! First things first, I ask him if he has talked to my father (the protective bald man over his only child), and he did. Phew, so I said YES! Looking back on it now, it’s funny because we only made it a few steps on the sidewalk and not quite to the river. He was just ready to get that ring out of his pocket. But, it was perfect."
