Effie + Albert | Wedding at Immaculate Conception Jesuit Church | New Orleans

From Retreat Day to Forever: A Love Story That Defied Time

Effie and her Albert’s love story began on a fateful retreat day in 8th grade, where they were grouped by chance. Despite harboring a crush, Albert lacked the courage to confess his feelings until senior year, marking a life-defining moment that led to their college years spent together.

The proposal, set against the nostalgic backdrop of Houmas House, symbolized the culmination of their journey. Now celebrating eight years together, Albert reflects on the joy of sharing life with his soulmate. As they approach marriage, he eagerly anticipates the next chapter, declaring, “Here’s to forever, I love you.” Their love story proves that some connections are destined to endure.
