Lucy Boyd & Ben Hatcher
Dancing The Night Away
Nov 3, 2018
New Orleans , Louisiana
While there is photo evidence that we actually met on the first night of our first year at the University of Virginia, our own recollection places our first encounter a few weeks later in the quad between our dorms. We think Lucy was going to do her laundry when she passed me standing outside of my dorm with some friends.
The preparation for the wedding was mostly coordinate between Lucy, her mom, wedding planner Emily Sullivan and Brennan’s Ashley Brodie. One of the funnest parts of wedding prep was visiting Brennan’s where we got to taste a selection of menu items. We knew right then we had to have shrimp and grits at our reception!
The Big Day
The big day was spent with family and friends while we got ready, followed by a music-filled ceremony at St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church, a packed dance floor at Brennan’s, and a second line to a classic New Orleans bar, Napoleon House. For us, the most memorable moments are the walk down the aisle, the dance floor (especially our on-stage performance of Wagon Wheel), and the second line around the French Quarter.
We spent two weeks in New Zealand which was for both of us, the most spectacular place we’ve ever visited. We hiked, fished, kayaked, swam, ate, and drank our way across New Zealand’s Waiheke Island, Abel Tasman national park and southern alps.
