Rebecca Doyle had known Richard Weber for almost two decades when she ran into him at a party on a cold December night. The next day, Richard showed up at her apartment with his adorable dog Bear and asked her out. Rebecca was so touched by his gesture – she realized she had met her soul mate! They dated for the next two years, and Richard asked her to marry him on Thanksgiving morning 2012. Of course Rebecca said “Yes!” and the planning began.
Rebecca’s mom Melissa and her sister Katherine, along with Pat Denechaud, helped her create the wedding of a lifetime. They called James Clausen of Urban Earth. Rebecca told him about her favorite flowers – gardenias, lilies, peonies, roses and hydrangeas – and he took it from there. Both the wedding gown and the bridesmaids’ dresses were designed by Monique L’Huillier.The wedding took place at The Most Holy Name of Jesus Church and the Landry Walker Gospel performed.
The New Orleans Country Club created a sumptuous buffet, complete with a seafood station ice sculpture, beef Wellington, lamb chops and more, and Kyoto created sushi for guests. The cake by Denise St. Pierre was a show-stopper and the tablecloth, crated of all real flowers, was over the top. Terry McDermott and the Bonfires as well as BRW performed until 3:30 a.m.
After the reception, Rebecca and Richard left for a two-week French Polynesian honeymoon in Taha’a, Bora Bora and Moorea. They reside in New Orleans, where Richard is in Commercial Real Estate at Corporate Reality and Rebecca is therapist at Tulane University’s Counseling and Psychological Services.
