"Scott and I met in Portland, OR in 2009 when one of his best friends (who gave a speech) randomly became one of my roommates, thanks to craigslist. We fell in love on the dance floor (and in photobooths) in Portland and have followed eachother around the country ever since. We moved to NYC (while I was in grad school), to NOLA (for his grad school), and then back to NYC almost 3 years ago. We love New Orleans so so much and knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. My grandparents were married in New Orleans on Christmas Eve during WWII. My grandparents are both from NYC, but my grandpa was stationed there and my grandma went down for a whirlwind wedding. When we lived in NOLA we loved Markey's bar and Gene's Daiquiris, so it was amazing that they both got to be part of our day. "
