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!"
