Kelleigh and Tyler first met in a dentist office. For most people, that encounter would be it, content to go on with their lives never meeting again. But whether it was kismet or a happy coincidence,they kept bumping into each other. From coffee shops in the CBD to lunch venues in the Warehouse District, some force wanted them to be together. It wasn’t until a night out at Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar & Restaurant that they finally connected and Tyler asked Kelleigh out to dinner.
With the fates on their side, it was no surprise (except to Kelleigh) that after an excellent lunch at Brennan’s, that Kelleigh thought was an early birthday outing, Tyler expressed his undying love for Kelleigh before he got down on his knee and asked for her hand in marriage.
Being die-hard LSU football fans, the couple tied the knot on a date that they could still have time to bond over their favorite pastime.
“We’d never interrupt an LSU football game, but we wanted to get married in the fall. But we also didn’t want to interfere with a Saints game. So we chose a Friday. Football fans for life,” Kelleigh said.
With a healthy does of New Orleans fun, Kelleigh ditched traditional heels for baby blue Converse, the bouquets were handmade masks and their flower girl was Nola, their adorable chihuahua.
As their love continues to grow and flourish, it’s obvious that Kelleigh and Tyler were destined to be.
