Ahmad and Katara met at work and immediately new it was love at first site. Even though they swore that had met before, Katara still refused to give Ahmad her number several times. It took several conversations on Instagram before he finally got her number. We would talk for hours about everything. They spent New Years together, symbolizing they would spend the entire year together as a family and they have been inseparable ever since!
Sixth months later… Ahmad worked closely with B.Sherrie Events to plan the perfect New Orleans Proposal. Ahmad and Katara live in Virginia and had planned a trip to New Orleans. With nerves running high Ahmad tried his best to not let the real plans slip out. After their carriage ride and stroll through the French Quarter, it was time for a lunch Katara would never forget. Katara’s daughter didn’t make the trip, but was present via live video chat. With her eyes closed, hand in hand Katara and Ahmad entered the Airbnb. She heard a violinist playing and immediately opened her eyes to the beautiful floor covered rose petals leading her through the rooms. She looked so surprised to see the private table for two. Then Ahmad dropped to one knee and asked for her hand in marriage. Her reaction was priceless and of course, once she got over the shock and tears of joy, said YES! When their emotions calmed down, they had an amazing, intimate lunch followed by decadent desserts and even a little dancing. And what proposal isn’t complete without photos on Canal Street, confetti, and smoke bombs.
Huge congrats to you both and we’re so happy to have been a part of this momentous occasion!
