Kerry and Kyle have been together for 5 years and met while both attending Loyola University in New Orleans. Kerry said, "The proposal was absolutely epic. Kyle proposed from a float in the Irish Channel St. Patrick's Day parade in 2015. He got all his friends to hold signs that spelled out "Kerry, will you marry me?" As they rolled by by where we were standing and then hopped off the float and got down on one knee."
The two were married at The Degas House Courtyard & Inn on October 22, 2016.
When asking Kerry and Kyle why they chose The Degas House for their venue, they said "We've had the opportunity to attend lots of friends weddings down here and had already seen lots of venues. Since so many of our guests were coming from all over the place, we wanted to experience to feel quintessentially New Orleans." Also, Kerry grew up with a love of Impressionist painters which triggered her interest. The historic property with the courtyard had exactly the feel they were looking for: laid-back and intimate, yet very New Orleans.
When asking the couple how their magical night was, they told me "We had so many moments where we stopped and looked over the whole scene, under the glow of hundreds of twinkle lights, overwhelmed by the amount of people who care about us. It was a total, perfect love-fest and we wouldn't change a thing."
Congratulations, Kerry & Kyle!
