Before their whimsical wedding at The Peach Orchard, it all started in 2016 when Lesly was offered a position at Abercrombie which she turned down due to the long commute. Laziz ironically accepted it while she started work at another location. A year later, their districts combined, and Laziz was asked to fill in for Lesly while she was on vacation. “I needed someone to fill in for me while I was out for two weeks – and out of many, it was [Laziz] who was chosen. [He] should have been gone the day I was back, but they asked [him] to stay one more day…and that’s all it took. Timing is everything & it’s always been [Laziz].” Lesly says.

While Catherine and Paten originally met and even dated for a few years in high school starting in 2009, it wasn’t until a crawfish boil seven years later that the pair rekindled their romance.  When they started dating a few months later, they could feel this time was different than their previous fling. So, when Paten got down on one knee during a trip to New Braunfels with a group of close friends, “he asked the easiest question of my life!” explained Catherine. Then, in March 2021, the couple tied the knot in a stunning white and rose gold wedding at Madera Estates. Click here to read the rest of this post »
