Mary “Molly” Katherine Matteksy met Arthur Alexander Clarkson Sanders at a pre-season Saints game in 2009. They had grown up a streetcar ride away from each other but didn’t realize it. She attended the Academy of the Sacred Heart, and he went to De La Salle. Soon after the Saints game, Arthur asked Molly to dinner at NOLA, and the two quickly became inseparable. One of Molly and Arthur’s favorite things to do is golf at English Turn, so Arthur asked Molly’s parents for permission before setting up a tee time. On April 15, 2012, Molly thought they were just playing a round of golf, but then Arthur asked her to hold the flag on the third hole and got down on one knee. Molly immediately said “Yes!” and they went to celebrate with family and friends.

After the wedding, Molly and Arthur went to St. Barths for seven days. The two are currently renovating their home Uptown. Arthur is a personal trainer and real estate developer, and sells life insurance. Molly is currently in graduate school at Loyola University earning her master’s in counseling.
