How We Started

9.18.2021 || 11.5.2021

In a serendipitous twist of fate, the stars aligned to bring together two souls destined for love in the enchanting city of New Orleans. Kyle, a Louisiana native born and raised in Kenner, has always called Louisiana home. Meanwhile, Arielle's journey began in Buffalo, NY, followed by a move to Baltimore, MD in early childhood. It was during her college years when she first discovered the allure of New Orleans, a place that captivated her heart. Little did we know our paths were destined to converge in this magical city. After college, Arielle ventured away, but fate had other plans, leading her back to New Orleans in May 2019 for a new chapter in her career. As if guided by unseen forces, our lives intertwined in the very city that held the promise of love and new beginnings. From that moment on, our story unfolded, leading us to meet, fall deeply in love, and embark on a lifelong journey together, culminating in a wedding that will celebrate our undeniable connection and the magic of New Orleans. On the memorable evening of September 18, 2021, destiny wove its intricate threads, bringing together our two souls at the vibrant Rusty Nail bar in New Orleans. Little did we know that this chance encounter would mark the beginning of a beautiful love story. It was a lively night, filled with laughter, football, and the clinking of glasses. Among the bustling crowd, Jeanne and Ben, two dear friends who possessed an uncanny knack for matchmaking, played their role as cupid without even realizing it. In the midst of conversations and merriment, Jeanne noticed an undeniable chemistry between two individuals. It was as if the universe whispered, "You two belong together." The stars aligned once again on November 5, 2021, when fate, with a little more help from Jeanne, Ben, and birthday girl Claire, orchestrated another meeting between us, this time at the enchanting Delachaise. As we reunited in that cozy setting, our hearts recognized each other, and our connection grew stronger with every passing moment. It was as if time stood still, allowing us to cherish the magic unfolding between us. And so, just two days later, we embarked on our very first date, a day etched in our memories forever. Our shared love for football led us to the hallowed grounds of the Superdome for the New Orleans Saints game. Amidst the roaring cheers and the electrifying atmosphere, we reveled in each other's company, celebrating not only the game but also the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. From that day forward, our bond flourished, nurtured by love, respect, and shared values. We embarked on a journey together, supporting each other through life's highs and lows, and finding solace in the warmth of our love. And now, as we stand on the threshold of a new adventure, ready to exchange vows and embark on a lifelong commitment, we cherish the serendipitous encounters, the laughter shared, and the love that has grown between us. Our love story, born amidst the revelry of a chance meeting, serves as a testament to the power of destiny and the remarkable journey that lies ahead. With hearts entwined and a love that knows no bounds, we stand united, forever grateful for the day our paths intertwined, grateful for the love that has blossomed, and excited for the future that awaits us.

Our Engagement


Our engagement story is a tale of love, adventure, and the vibrant spirit of New Orleans. On May 13, 2023, we embarked on a St. Charles Ave streetcar pub crawl, weaving our way through the heart of our enchanting city. Little did Arielle know that this would be the start of a day we would never forget. We began our journey at Cooter Browns, a lively hole in the wall near the Mississippi River. Our plan was to hop on the streetcar and make our way to the Gilded Perch, but fate had a different plan for us. As so often happens in New Orleans, the streetcar was unavailable, so we embraced the spontaneity and embarked on a stroll to our next destination. As we arrived at the Gilded Perch, we were greeted by the lively atmosphere of a wedding's bridal party photos and a separate engagement party. It was a fitting backdrop for what was about to unfold. Amidst the joyous celebrations, we sipped our drinks, savoring the moment while Kyle felt the anticipation building. As we finished at the Gilded Perch, the streetcar eluded us once again, but our spirits were undeterred. We hopped into an Uber and made our way to The Chloe. There, amidst the charm of the venue, we shared another drink, reveling in the joy of the day and the love that we share. Our journey continued on foot, leading us to the Columns Hotel. However, fate had another twist in store for us as the hotel was closed due to yet another wedding. It seemed as though every step of our adventure hinted at what was to come. Undeterred, we walked a few more blocks to our final destination—the Delachaise bar. As we walked up to the patio, the air was filled with a sense of magic and anticipation. Kyle asked Arielle to choose a table while he went to get two glasses of champagne, knowing that this was where our lives were about to change. This was the moment he had planned the entire day around. Underneath the sprawling live oaks and amidst the warm ambiance, Kyle took a deep breath. With love in my heart, I began explaining to Arielle what this whole day had really been about. I had been planning this for weeks and had carefully crafted our plan for the day. I explained how our adventure mirrored her journey to New Orleans—the city she fell in love with and where our love story later began. From the streets near Tulane University, where she first embraced the charm of this city; down St. Charles Avenue, towards downtown where her return to New Orleans had begun; and now to the Delachaise bar, where our relationship began to blossom and where our journey together was about to take a profound turn. It's as though fate intervened to ensure she ended up here so we could meet. With a ring in my hand, I asked her to marry me. Time stood still as she said yes, and our souls intertwined in a beautiful promise of forever. It was a moment of pure joy and celebration, encapsulating the love we had nurtured and the memories we had already created together. Our engagement story is a testament to the spirit of adventure, the magic of unexpected detours, and the power of love that knows no bounds. We are excited to share this journey with you as we embark on the next chapter of our lives, forever grateful for the vibrant tapestry of New Orleans that has woven our story together. *All embellishments and flowery language courtesy of ChatGPT
