Taylor wanted an "in-between winter and spring concept" for her wedding. She chose dove gray for her bridesmaids gowns and added pops of blush in the flowers and cake.

Michael and Taylor's priest, Father Cleo Milano of Our Lady of Mercy in Baton Rouge, ended the final blessing in Italian a beautiful touch that meant so much to the couple because Michael comes from an Italian family.

"I ordered a window off Etsy and added all of the historic wedding photos in our families to it to display at the wedding reception." - Taylor

"Michael and I are kind of nerdy and had colored hipster glasses and glow sticks handed out to wear half way through the reception for the guests."

Taylor wore her Maw-Maw's wedding dress as her going away outfit, as did her two sisters. "She was a huge part of our lives growing up and passed away before we each were married. It's our special way of including her and showing our Paw-Paw how much she means to us." - Taylor

You Stole My Heart.

During their senior year of college, Taylor met Michael at the Varisty in Baton Rouge while watching an LSU game. Michael made quite the impression by asking Taylor if she would run around the Varsity yelling the LSU fight song. She politely declined. Fortunately, his sense of humor intrigued her and when he asked her out on a date a few weeks later, this time she said yes.

While on a weekend get-away hike in Fredricksburg, Texas, Michael would ask Taylor to be his wife. He got down on one knee at “The Enchanted Rock” and again Taylor said yes!
