Louisiana Lovelies

As told by Stasha: An avid watcher of romance films, Sherrie often laughed when the storyline involved the main character finding true love in college or graduate school. That laughter has turned into uncontrollable blushing because we met in law school but didn’t begin dating until a year later when I mustered the courage to flirt with her during Evidence class. Since then, we’ve been inseparable! One year after the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on marriage equality and we are still in disbelief that our marriage is possible. We are tremendously blessed to spend our lives together as wives and most importantly best friends. We hope that our union may inspire younger members of the LGBT community to live out loud.

Our wedding was accidentally perfect. We initially planned to host a rustic barn wedding at an all-inclusive venue. Unfortunately, two weeks before our wedding, the venue was so damaged in the Baton Rouge summer flood that they could not host our wedding. As a result, we had two weeks to re-plan our entire wedding which meant finding and securing all vendors in an extremely short window of time. So, instead of the rustic wedding of our dreams, we hosted a contemporary wedding with rustic details. Despite this unexpected diversion, we thoroughly enjoyed our day.

Our intimate ceremony was held in The Shaw Center, a multi-use museum, theatre and arts complex which incorporates historic architecture and modern design. We exchanged moving and deeply personal vows after Sherrie’s law school roommate read a paragraph of Justice Kennedy’s marriage equality ruling. Once the ceremony was complete, guest moved to the building’s terrace which consists of a glass-enclosed room leading out to a balcony and sculpture garden, that features spectacular views of the Mississippi River and downtown Baton Rouge. After dinner and a beautiful toast everyone enjoyed dancing to the music of a traditional New Orleans Brass Band.

You know what we love? Versatility. We talk about it all the time with registries, decor and of course, attire! Who doesn't love getting a few wears out of their best duds? We are rounding up a few of our favorite looks that can double as holiday getup! 

These ensembles will have you dressed to the nines for a winter wedding...or a holiday party (or both!). Think sequins, velvet and rich textures.

No ugly Christmas sweater parties here!

1. Dapper style doesn't always mean a suit and tie, though it certainly can! We love the variety here - you can never go wrong with the deep emerald hues.

2. A classic tux is always a great choice! We love a twist with velvet lapels or a textured bow tie.

3. Purple hair, don't care. Yes, we are firm believers that sequined shorts are for everyone. They pair perfectly with a chic button down and a velvet blazer.

4. Want to make your jewelry pop? Try slinging your jacket over your shoulders. It frames a statement necklace perfectly!

5. Trying to lighten it up? Two words - cream silk. This tuxedo style suit is pure luxe. It works walking down the aisle, sipping hot toddies at a holiday party or pretty much anywhere. Feeling noncommittal? Ditch the jacket! Tuxedo pants always work on their own.

How did you start dating?

Z: Kyle and I started dating after about six years of knowing one another. We began dating my senior year of college, after I had just come back from studying abroad in France. I messaged him asking him when I was taking him to dinner.

K: Its true. Zabrian basically told me where and when we were getting dinner, to which I happily agreed, and we’ve been together ever since.

How did you know that your partner was the right one for you?

Z: He was different. Kyle was quiet, shy, reserved, and very caring. These were all qualities that told me that he was going to care about me, just as much as I’d care about him.

K: Even before we became a couple, he knew exactly what he wanted. I, on the other hand, was a nervous wreck for our date, and barely spoke a sentence. Still to this day I get teased because when I met him at dinner all I could muster out of my mouth was “Hey bud”. To this day he will tag things with #YouHadMeSinceHeyBud. I needed a partner who could dish it out as well as I can, and could be charming and funny about it simultaneously, and thankfully, he was determined to get that dinner.

What have you learned from your fiancé?

Z: I’ve learned that it is okay to do things to make yourself happy, even if it isn’t favorable to everyone else. Also, when you take him on road trips, he still needs juice to drink and gummy candies to eat.

K: I’ve learned to trust. Not just any trust, but the kind that people brag about in whirlwind romances. The kind where you can show all your flaws and mishaps, and he will help me learn from them all. Its never a competition, or a blame game, but an opportunity for us to grow as a couple. He showed me that love is real, and that you can give a person every ounce of your soul, and they’ll protect it forever.

How would you describe the dynamic of your relationship?

Z: Magnetic, because even though sometimes we are at opposite sides of the spectrum, we come together for a common goal. Understanding, because we have both had different world experiences, and we take the time to appreciate the differences in those experiences. Honest, because we are not afraid to talk to one another about anything.

K: Flirty, because one us is constantly trying to flirt with the other, with varying degrees of successes. Reassuring, because even when the flirting doesn’t work, we convince the other that we really do love one another. Comical, because there is truly never a dull day in our household. Even on the days where we literally get to wakeup together, then lay back in bed at night, there are always laughs filling our house.

What are you most looking forward to as a couple?

Z: Having something that is exclusively ours. Owning our first home. Looking at successes and failures, and reflecting upon all the time we’ve had together. Growing old.

K: Becoming parents. After our wedding in December, we will begin the long journey of surrogacy. My biggest goal in life is to be a father. I can’t wait for all the milestones that a child will bring into our life, and the memories that will flood our home together.
