Andrea + Craig | Wedding Reception | Capital on Baronne | New Orleans
Andrea and Craig’s wedding reception at the Capital on Baronne in New Orleans.
In her words..
“Craig and I both went to Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. He is originally from the Shreveport-Bossier area and I am born and raised in Baton Rouge. We literally were the only Asian people at Northwestern so people thought that we should meet each other. Craig is a few years older than me. We met and dated on and off in college until he decided that he was going to move to Dallas after graduation and did not want to continue anything. He is my first love and my first heartbreak. I moved forward with life and continued on to accomplishing my dreams. Craig ended up calling me at least once if not twice a year (with some liquid courage) telling me he made a mistake and if I could give him just one more chance. He did this for 15 years although we both had moved forward with life. I had moved to different states including Ohio, Virginia, and Florida. When he was ready to try to be together, I was in a serious relationship and when I was ready to give things a second chance, he was in a serious relationship. We remained friends throughout the years. We were both single towards the end of 2018 and decided to finally give things a 2nd shot after 15 years. I ended up moving to Nashville, TN where he’s living and the rest is history!
Last year, we decided to proceed with our Covid wedding on 8/8/2020. It was important to keep this date because my grandparents were married on 8/8 and “8” is a lucky Asian number. If you look at our double happiness symbol, it looks like two number 8s! Our reception is on our anniversary weekend to celebrate with all of our friends and family that we could not have last year!”
