One evening Kathryn Claire Brennan and Thomas Gordon McLeod took the streetcar to Commander’s Palace for dinner. While they were walking and chatting, Gordon told Kathryn that his New Year’s Resolution was to marry her. He then presented her with her grandmother’s engagement ring and the she said “Yes!”
The McLeods hosted a rehearsal dinner at Ralph’s on the Park to celebrate the union of Kathryn and Gordon the following day. On May 30, 2015, the two wed at Trinity Episcopal Church. With the help of wedding coordinator Susan Zackin and florist Dunn & Sonnier, the church transformed into the perfect backdrop for the happy couple.
After the ceremony, the celebration continued with a reception at Brennan’s Restaurant. Guests were invited to dine on delicious cuisine provided by Brennan’s while enjoying music by Deacon John. Melissa’s Fine Pastries created both the wedding and groom’s cakes. Photographer Grevy captured every moment from the first kiss until the last guest left.
After the wedding, the couple went to Dubrovnik, Croatia and Barcelona, Spain to celebrate their marriage. After the honeymoon, Kathryn and Gordon settled into their New Orleans home, where Kathryn is a Restaurant Manager for the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group and Gordon is the Director of Land Use and Development for Council District A.
