Wedding at St. Joseph’s Chuch in New Orleans with Mei and Hieu

Mei and Hieu took their first trip together 2 years ago to England and France. They enjoyed everything about it especially Provence. So the theme of their wedding is the French countryside. Since Hieu is the talented one in the relationship they decided for him to make their own invitations and church programs. He drew all the flowers, embossed and hand painted all 200 invitations.

“We became friends during undergrad at Xavier University. We met through mutual friends. Hieu and I were in our own relationships at the time. When both ended, we became closer as friends and decided to be more than friends. We have many small funny moments throughout our relationship. Hieu is the talented and carefree one in the relationship. I just help him reach items on the top shelf =D. Hieu doesn’t know how to wrap presents so instead he used 2 different colored post-it notes to wrap a large box. According to Hieu, cats have a favorite fruit…it’s a persimmon.
11.12.13: Hieu and I went out to dinner with close friends and family at Mondo. After dinner, Tim Pham invited us to join him at the Lakefront to help him scout the area for his next photoshoot. This was probably the coldest and windiest night I can remember. We all arrived and got out the car. Before I knew it, everyone formed a close circle around Hieu and I and backed away. Music started playing and he took my hand. Hieu’s brother placed a small pillow on the cement and Hieu got on one knee and said a few things before he popped the question.” – Mei & Hieu

Wedding at Four Columns in New Orleans with Dianna and Dudley

Dudley and Dianna are truly kids at heart. They are both very easy going and love to make each other laugh. They met through a friend at a club called Republic. However, neither showed an interest in each other. Three months later, they met again at Metropolitan through another friend, and it was then that they decided to give each other a chance. Dianna actually took her best girlfriend Van on their first date together. They kept it simple, starting off at Hooters and having their palms read by a Wizard in front of the St. Louis Cathedral. Seven years later, Dudley proposed to Dianna at the St. Louis Cathedral by making her do a caricature drawing with him. The picture drawn showed Dudley proposing to Dianna. She was oblivious to what was happening until Dudley got down on one knee.

It was an amazing story, and we love that our couples take the time to share them with us. Congratulations to Dianna and Dudley!
