Engagement Session in New Orleans
Mixing business with pleasure can sometimes turn into a lifelong commitment, which is what happened when Jenny and Mason, both physical therapists, were in St. Louis on clinical. With their parents in town to meet each other, Mason deemed it the perfect time to pop the question. When they were standing in front of the famous St Louis Gateway Arch, the tallest man-made national monument in the United States, Mason, feeling ten feet tall himself, gave the speech of a lifetime and asked Jenny to marry him. After saying, “Of course,” the couple and their families celebrated at the Four Seasons Hotel, where Mason had arranged an incredibly special evening for them all including champagne in front of a fireplace, long-stemmed roses, and a dazzling flower petal display. This man knows how to make a memorable event even more memorable.
To celebrate this milestone in their lives, these social butterflies decided to have a City Park engagement session in New Orleans. As they strolled through the large stands of oaks draped with Spanish moss, they planned their future, which will be filled with all the things they love, such as watching sporting events, going to parties and festivals, and listening to country music. They get into some lively discussions, too, as they both have strong opinions on a great many subjects, but, according to Jenny, it suits them well.
They love to travel and frequently find themselves out of town a lot for friends’ weddings. The beach is one of their favorite places to go, and they are anxiously awaiting a chance to see Europe. When they aren’t watching sports, they like playing them – softball, sand volleyball, soccer, or just tossing a football. While Mason loves cooking, the couple also enjoys exploring new restaurants, which New Orleans certainly has plenty of. Maybe their cat, Julio, is lucky enough to get the leftovers.
They will be taking their vows at the famous Saint Louis Cathedral, which overlooks Jackson Square in the heart of New Orleans. After the ceremony, they and their families and friends will celebrate the event at The Jaxson on the River, which is the old Jackson Brewery, that overlooks the Mississippi River. This 110-year-old building was home to the last independent brewery in the South. What a great place to throw a once-in-a-lifetime party that will signal the start of their whirlwind life together as husband and wife.
