Coral, Gold & Ivory Wedding at The Crystal Ballroom at The Rice

“I suppose time is a better friend of mine than I thought. Right when I was focused on doing me, fate sent me a friend, partner, confidant and love all in one—Rebekah,” says Rasauli. Rebekah—personal trainer and nutritionist of Be a 10 Fitness—stole Rasauli’s heart within moments of them meeting, and he was determined to make her his wife.

Rebekah tells us how it all went down. “We went to Brennan’s Houston to celebrate our anniversary that was coming up. Our table was located in a private room, which was covered in rose petals. The chef came to the table and said that he prepared a special menu for us. In the middle of dinner, Rasauli asked to be excused from the table. At this point I was trying not to get too excited! I just knew he was going to come back with a ring—but instead he came back with an anniversary card. I was so disappointed, and I told him that I was expecting him to propose. He grabbed my hand and told me that I have to be patient. Right then, the waiter came by with a large covered ‘dessert’ dish. Once he removed the lid, I found a diamond ring! Before I knew it, he was down on one knee and my dad came from behind me to give me a hug.”

The lovebirds tied the knot at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice with a 150 of their closest family and friends in attendance. “We wanted an elegant wedding with a classic New Orleans twist. We incorporated special dances and umbrellas, and had our guests involved, which created such a fun environment. My favorite moments include our first dance, the ‘second line’ dance, and when my matron of honor sung a special song for me,” says Rebekah.
