I Couldn’t Forget My Heart.
Story by: Starlight Williams
Logan and Williams met first week of college in the lobby of their freshman dorm. While Logan had a small crush on William, she was content with their growing friendship. Even though they became great friends and eventually a better couple, it became an ongoing joke that William never remembered crossing paths with Logan that fateful night.
How could William forget the girl who stole his heart? Well, he didn’t.
After a lunch at Muriel’s, William casually asked if Logan wanted to visit some of the haunted rooms above the restaurant. Confused as to why William had access, butwilling to go, Logan and William toured the rooms until he brought her to the balcony with Jackson Square in the background. He started to speak emotionally about his love for Logan and even surprised her with the information that he remembered exactly when they met.
However, the more William talked, it was clear to him that Logan was a little confused. “I can tell you have no idea what is going on, but today is a really important day for us,” William said.
When she figured it out, Logan couldn’t help but scream, “Yes!” when William asked her to be his forever.
With an elegant but whimsical theme, Logan and William’s day was surrounded in a blanket of love, family and friends.
“Perfect does not even begin to describe it,” Logan says.

"We went with a classic neutral palette, with a ton of lush greenery, including wild bouquets and flower crowns." - Logan
The National Shrine of Our Lady of Prompt Succor was the same church where William's parents and both his sisters got married, so it held great meaning to the couple to also marry there.
"I have to say the BEST part of the night was when we arrived to Southern Oaks Plantation. All of our guests were lined up to the entrance, and we were escorted right up to the top of the stairs, and told to turn around. I had no idea that the amazing staff at the venue had planned a surprise fireworks show for us!" - Logan
Logan has always loved monograms and incorporated theirs into as many aspects of her wedding as she could.
