John Craig “Marsh” Moseley went straight over to introduce himself to Adair Mary Vulevich when he saw her in a friend’s kitchen. They were both there to socialize before heading off to a fundraiser. Despite being with a big group of friends, they spent most of the night with each other. Two weeks later Marsh called Adair. They spent two hours chatting on the phone, despite Adair’s final exam the next day! Days later they went on their first date, and have spent almost every day together since.
Two and a half years after that first date, Marsh asked Adair to come with him to walk their dog in Audubon Park. It was under the live oaks that Marsh proposed while friends and families waited at their home to celebrate the night away!
When Marsh was 11, he told his mother he wanted to be married on Avery Island where his parents have a home “Sundown,” and where his ancestral home, “Marsh House,” is located, too.
So, on Saturday, October 15, 2016, Judge Cameron Simmons, a family relative of the groom, married the couple at Sundown, with ceremony music provided by the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra.
The night before the wedding party had celebrated at Marsh House, with a feast of the couple’s favorite foods and a specialty cocktail, “Honey Do.”
The couple drew their inspiration for the décor from the island itself, using bamboo and indigenous foliage in decorations, along with green and white hydrangea, tropical colored roses and dendrobium orchids.
“Just the Way You Are” by Billy Joel was the soundtrack for their first dance, because they are “committed to each other, just the way they are, no exceptions.”
Marsh and Adair live in Uptown New Orleans, where Marsh is in Institutional Equity Sales at Johnson and Rice, LLC. Adair is a Speech-Language Pathologist at the International School of Louisiana. They will be going to Italy on their honeymoon in Summer 2017.
