Jake and Julia met through mutual friends, and both knew early on that there was something special about their relationship. They both live in Houston but fondly refer to New Orleans as their “Favorite place on earth.” Julia suspected that something was up when, recently, Jake surprised her with a spa day and a trip to New Orleans. He is usually not the planner in the relationship, but he spared no expense to make this day perfect for Julia. Their love for each other was genuine and contagious. When Jake got down on one knee to ask the question, crowds of tourist gathered around, rang bells and honked horns. Julia said yes!
The celebration didn’t end there! I quickly took the newly engaged couple for a celebratory drink at their favorite New Orleans bar, Pat O’Briens. On our way, we stopped and gasped as a huge rainbow appeared over the French Quarter. After our drink, we ran into an impromptu second line and joined in to dance and have a great time. It was all so perfect, it all felt like a sign, like the whole city was celebrating their love.
Cheers and congratulations to Jake and Julia!
