Local Wedding: Pettey – Sanders

Mattie Anne Pettey and Jonathan Andrew Sanders met in college at the University of New Orleans while they were both taking an Economics class. Jimmy Riles, a mutual friend of the groomsmen, introduced Mattie and Jonathan. Their first date was at Louisiana Pizza Kitchen. One weekend, Mattie and Jonathan took a weekend trip to Biloxi. The two were walking on the beach when Jonathan proposed.
