As Leigh Ann was finishing her Spring midterms in graduate school, her boyfriend Patrick was planning a proposal as a celebration after her exams. He figured that it would be the perfect time, so that she could enjoy her engagement throughout Spring Break. Well, date night came along and Patrick casually asked Leigh Ann when she thought he would propose. She deserved an “A+”, because she said “before Spring Break”.! As dinner came to an end and they headed back to Patrick’s apartment, he couldn’t wait any longer— he ended up proposing that same night.
They tied the knot with a traditional Catholic wedding at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston, TX, where both families live. Leigh Ann wore a vintage fit and flare Elancon lace dress with added sleeves from Weddings by Debbie in Houston. They had a 5-tier, multi-flavored cake, decorated with mint ribbons of icing, white pearls, and a gold script “A”— which matched the invitations— from Cakes by Gina. The bridesmaids and house party were able to do a famous Southern tradition: a Cake Pull. (pulling silver charms off the cake) The couple ended their grand wedding adventure with a honeymoon in St. Lucia.

“Take three separate times during the reception with your husband to step back and just watch your guests. It only takes a few seconds and really allows you to soak in the night and see how much fun everyone is having.”
