St Louis Cathedral wedding with Jessica and Devin
Every wedding is special, but this one was filled with so much love, Italian humor, and beauty. Anyone who was there will tell you, Jessica & Devin’s wedding weekend in New Orleans was truly unforgettable.
“Devin and I met in 2009 while he was finishing his senior year at LSU. We were neighbors at the gates at Brightside. The first time I saw Devin he was sitting on his patio in a folding chair with his feet propped up on an old BBQ pit. He was reading an LSAT prep book and smoking a cigar. I asked him, “what’s the LSAT?”
Devin was not impressed.
Time passed and a friendship formed. We played around with the idea of dating and made it official on August 15, 2010. The rest is history! In our 7 years together we have hit many milestones at each other’s side and grown into adulthood standing next to one another.
Devin asked me to marry him on December 25, 2015. We usually spend Christmas at our respective family homes in Prairieville and Metairie and meet up on Christmas morning. Devin recruited the help of my grandparents and mother to set up our home while he drove in from Metairie that morning. While I slept, my family drove to our home and filled it with the 200 long stem red roses Devin had ordered for the occasion.
I had no idea what I was in for when I walked inside that day. Devin was on his knee holding a ring box with the prettiest engagement ring I’d ever seen. His allergies were kind enough to let him get through the proposal. I was not. I said yes before he could finish asking me!”
