In each issue, St. Charles Avenue Magazine highlights the real wedding of a local New Orleans couple. The “With This Ring” section includes details and photos of the couple and their wedding. Below is the nuptials of Megan Alyce Cambre and Scott Andrew Saporito written by Avenue contributor Mallory Lindsly.
Megan Alyce Cambre and Scott Andrew Saporito met during Pat Green’s performance at the 2014 “Hogs for the Cause” fundraiser. The two quickly connected when they realized that they both loved Pat Green during their high school and college years. After a couple of dinners, they were officially dating.
The Cambres made plans to celebrate Labor Day 2015 with the Saporitos at their house in Pass Christian. Megan and Scott went for a walk, where Scott brought her over to the old Boston Whaler he had restored. Scott presented her with a Nola Couture redfish collar for the golden retriever puppy the two were adopting the next day. The nametag on the collar was inscribed with “Will you marry me?” After a brief moment of shock, Megan said “Yes!”, and then saw their families watching and cheering from the porch above.
The weekend of the March 19, 2016 wedding, the Saporitos held a Rehearsal Dinner at Antoine’s to kick off the celebratory weekend.
The ceremony was at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in the French Quarter with Father Joe Krafft and Deacon Wayne Lobell serving as celebrants. The ceremony music included Cantor Sarah Jane McMahon, Organist Dreux Montegut, Violinist Lulu Reeks and Trumpeter-Ryan Asprion.
A reception following the ceremony was hosted at the Old Ursuline Convent, where Highlight’s Catering served delicious bites for the guests to enjoy. After the reception, Megan and Scott second-lined to the Hermes Bar at Antoine’s, where the guests kept the party going. Deacon John played the reception, and Megan’s father serenaded the guests with “Fortune Teller.”
In May, the two traveled to Anguilla for a week of honeymooning and relaxation. They returned back to their house in Uptown New Orleans, where Megan is an attorney practicing civil insurance defense at Gieger, Laborde and Laperouse; and Scott is a marine insurance broker for Arthur J. Gallagher.
