about the wedding date + time
When their guests received Sara and Colin’s wedding invitation in the mail, they noticed a peculiar ceremony time, 6:02pm.
“When we originally set our wedding date, we didn’t realize we chose Mole Day as our date until a friend pointed it out,” shares Sara. “We both studied Chemical Engineering, so we had to go along with the theme and began our ceremony at 6:02 PM.”
the wedding venue
Sara and Colin knew they wanted to get married close to one of their favorite places in New Orleans, the place they met! “We met via mutual friends at Lucy’s, our favorite bar in the city!” shares Sara. “Of course we had to celebrate our after party at Lucy’s, which is one of the reasons we chose our venue location.”
The couple chose The Gallery Venue at Tomas Bistro on Tchoupitoulas Street, just a short walk from Lucy’s.

After the ceremony, Sara and Colin Second Lined with Big Fun Brass Band thru the venue and out to Tchoupitoulas Street where a friend was waiting with their dog Lucy! Yes! Sara and Colin love Lucy’s so much that they named their dog after the place they met!
the wedding reception
“We took a few lessons with an instructor to perfect our first dance to the song “The Bones” by Maren Morris. We were nervous, but once the song started playing it felt like it was just the two of us on the dance floor. It was so much fun getting to show off our new skills to all of our loved ones!”
The wedding cake was a three tier textured confection with simple greenery and a laser-cut cake topper featuring reading “The Cuzmans”.
The couple celebrated with their guests, dancing the night away!
Guests cheered as Colin carried Sara out of the venue for their grand exit! An after party at Lucy’s followed the reception.
