The bride on her special day: 

"The theme was focused on a Southern old Hollywood type of feel, but since we were getting married on Cinco De Mayo, we decided to incorporate that in as well. We had a New Orleans engagement party to pay homage to how we met & the reason we got back together, so with the wedding, we had a second nd line dance at the end-which is a New Orleans tradition (with hand made decorated umbrellas--made by one of our groomsmen--Jason Spriggins). The food was Cajun inspired & the dessert room included small desserts such as bourbon balls & Jack Daniels mini pies. We were able to incorporate the Cinco de Mayo part with a box of Mexican Wedding Cake Cookies (all hand made by one of my bridesmaids--Angelle Thomas) as the guests present, as well as with our toasts--you had the option of champagne or Tequilla shots. New Orleans & Cinco de Mayo?! No way we could go without an open bar & signature drinks!"
