Elizabeth Zatarain Wade and Louis Anderson Green IV met in New Orleans through mutual friends and were in a long distance relationship when Anderson decided that he was going to propose.

Anderson and his family flew down to New Orleans on Saturday, April 9, 2011 without Liz knowing. Both the Wades and Greens were in on the surprise and tricked Liz into thinking that she was going out to celebrate her parents’ anniversary. Liz’s sister, Caroline, dropped her off so she could run ahead to grab the table for the family. As soon as Liz walked in, Anderson was patiently waiting to ask for her hand in marriage. He picked La Crêpe Nanou because it was the restaurant where he brought her on their first date. Both the Wade and Green families were anxiously waiting at Galatoire’s over dinner for the couple to arrive at the Court of Two Sisters for the celebration with both families and friends.

After their wedding, Liz and Anderson escaped to a romantic honeymoon to Vero Beach, Fla. for the week in anticipation of their extended honeymoon in Paris later this year. The two have quickly settled into their home in Nashville, Tenn., where Liz is an insurance broker and Anderson is a commercial mortgage banker.
