Jen and Scott, both New Jersey natives, met through a mutual friend. After two first dates, they took a trip to New Orleans, where Scott had lived while attending Tulane. It was Jen’s first visit to the city, and as their love for each other grew stronger so did the affection for New Orleans. Jen says, “We love the atmosphere, history, and tradition of New Orleans and couldn’t imagine our wedding anywhere else!” Scott works for VH1, and both he and Jen are avid music lovers, but with differing tastes. Scott enjoys Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen, while Jen prefers Mumford and Sons and the Black Keys. Both agree to love Louis Armstrong, and when they got engaged last year in the French Quarter, Armstrong’s “When You’re Smiling” was playing in the background. Because good food, great music, and fantastic atmosphere were their top three wedding day priorities, they planned a destination wedding in New Orleans for their friends and families to celebrate together.
