High School Sweethearts –Almost
Both born and raised in Lafayette, La., Cortnie and Thomas met as teens. However, their romance did not blossom until years later. “We knew each other in high school, but reconnected with each other through mutual friends during college,” Cortnie shared.
Those college years catapulted their friendship into romance. “The more time we spent together, the more we knew we were meant for each other,” the bride gushed. “Once we realized that spending time with one another became our biggest priority, and with that life became more fun, we knew it was meant to be.”
The Big Day
The cute, young, professional couple married right before Christmas – Dec. 17, 2016. What made the cherished moment so ideal? “The most special part of our wedding for us was having all of our friends and family with us to celebrate, especially the family members that came from out of town and even out of state,” Trevor confided.
For the ultimate honeymoon, the couple chose one of the most romantic places in the world – Italy. The twosome hit the highlights — Rome, Venice, Florence and Todi, the “world’s most livable city” — perched on a tall two-crested hill overlooking the east bank of the river Tiber. Ah, Romanza!
