"My favorite part was the reception. We danced the entire time. There was a traditional second line band and Mardi Gras Indian. We even stayed an extra hour after the second line."

“Wise men say, only fools rush in, but I can’t help falling in love with you.” However just because Natalie didn’t rush in, it did not mean her growing love for Kitty did not burn brightly.

Natalie and Kitty met in the oldest way possible, at work. While they saw each other across the hall, they really didn’t begin to speaking to each other until they worked closely for a case. After some time of getting to know each other personally and going out with coworkers after work, Kitty asked Natalie on a date, which Natalie promptly declined. But as time went on, eventually Natalie said yes to a first date, and they have been inseparable ever since.

On a Labor Day weekend trip to Orange Beach, Kitty was ready to make Natalie her wife, unfortunately traffic to the beach didn’t agree and delayed her proposal until the next day. However, after finding the perfect spot and gifting Natalie a necklace and love charm for her bracelet from her favorite store, Kitty surprised Natalie with one more piece of jewelry, an engagement ring. Natalie rushed to say “Yes!”

With traditional New Orleans cuisine and a wedding theme of butterflies and bling, Natalie and Kitty couldn’t help but end their day in marital bliss.
