Ami : One word to describe Greg: artful
Greg : One word to describe Ami : nostalgic
How did you two meet?
Ami was not the little girl who dreamt of her wedding day, but something changed when they followed their hearts to New Orleans and the walls on her “never want to get married” vault began to come down.It all started on a beautiful December day when we rode our bikes to the French Quarter, had an amazing brunch, and browsed various galleries and antique stores. Next in line was a jewelry store on Royal Street. Ami was peering at some non-wedding-stone-jewelry and this is when Greg found the stunning, unique Art Deco ring. Greg asked Ami to try it on and she lit up, which he took as a sign that she was finally more open to the idea of marriage.Needless to say, this ring had been haunting Ami as if there was a connection to the previous owner that made it just feel like it was a ring that had been waiting for her. When the world didn’t end on 12/21/2012, which was also Greg’s birthday, he thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make the day memorable in a positive way.
That night, Greg brought up that he had gone back to the jewelry store, but the ring had sold. The moment turns into a blur from this point for Ami, but Greg recalls that she told him that he “ruined [her] Christmas.” As Ami is about to cry, Greg says “but it could be yours if you say Yes.” Ami does not recall ever experiencing such a wide range of emotions over the course of five minutes. At dinner afterwards, the sparkly ring on Ami’s finger was proof that she was finally willing to let the long-term relationship begin its next chapter.
Tell us about the wedding day and what you are planning?
We are arranging an intimate, vintage-inspired ceremony at the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum surrounded by our closest friends and family on October 10, 2014. We are still exploring the particulars, but hope to be able to incorporate aspects that we love most about New Orleans to share with our out-of-town guests including the music, food, history, and atmosphere.
