A bride and her makeup artist get ready for her special day in New Orleans
When two gamers “met” online in April 2011, little did either of them realize that in 2017, they’d be beginning their new life together with a wedding at Pat O’Brien’s on the river in New Orleans.
Heather and Christian first became acquainted in an online gaming chat room. She thought he was witty and funny. One day, however, Christian dropped off the radar, and Heather became concerned, so she sent him a private message. He responded, but it was with terrible news. His stepbrother had tragically died. Sadly, Heather could relate, because she had lost a sister suddenly and tragically.
Through their shared grief, they grew even closer. They kept in touch, and through his kindness, intelligence, and charismatic personality, he was winning the most important game of all – the game of love. Heather was so taken with Christian, they finally met in person at Christian’s large, family reunion.
Christian was so nervous when he picked Heather up from the airport, he forgot where he parked his car, so they wandered the parking lot for half an hour till they found it, with Heather’s luggage in tow. Heather says when they kissed later that evening, she knew Christian was the one. She says the kiss was so amazing, she got all turned around and tried to get into the wrong car! It seems this couple were so smitten with one another, their brains had turned to mush.
In 2014, Christian finally left Cleveland to join Heather in Louisiana. They both love New Orleans for its history, music, people, food, and mystique.
Heather says Christian is not good with secrets or surprises, but it seems he managed both at least once. During a brief illness, he called out to her, and thinking he had grown worse, Heather ran into the room to find him on bended knee holding a ring. He popped the question, and she said yes.

The Ceremony: Jackson Square Ceremony

The couple were married in Jackson Square with the famous St. Louis Cathedral as their back drop.

The Reception: Pat O’Brien’s on the River

The reception was held at Pat O’Brien’s on the river. Since music plays an important role in their lives, Heather and Christian chose B Street Benny as their band, who, after only five years, has become a household name in New Orleans entertainment. They had the place jumping all night. Heather and Christian, being the fun-loving people they are, had a four-tied, octagonal-shaped traditional wedding cake, but added to the fun by also having a four-tiered New Orleans’ king cake.
With their love for each other, their four fur babies, and all things New Orleans, this couple is ready to let the good times roll on an epic scale.
