Love birds, Matt and Rebecca met while on rotation in a Baton Rouge hospital. On their second date, Matthew told Rebecca she’d be the girl he married. “He called it!” she says.
Rebecca wanted it to be cold for her wedding, so January 2nd was the perfect date. After saying their vows at Immaculate Conception church on Baronne Street, they partied with family and friends at The Federal Ballroom. They had a classic New Orleans wedding with a winter-y white color palette and enough confetti to both ring in the New Year and celebrate their new life together.
