Catherine + Dean
CATHERINE ROUNTREE + DEAN TALBOT
Wedding Date: 4.25.15
Number of Guests: 275
Wedding Colors: White, Ivory & Gold
While attending Louisiana State University, Catherine and Dean crossed paths at a college football game and hit it off immediately…only to find out that they lived right next door to one another! When Dean was deployed to Afghanistan, the U.S. Air Force pilot used the six months away from Catherine to think up a meaningful and romantic proposal. Upon his return to the U.S., Dean took his beloved Catherine to Georgia, where he popped the question in front of the Athens City Hall building— “the same place we spent hours getting to know one another the weekend we met,” explains the bride. Their classic ivory and gold wedding, held at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice and attended by 275 friends and family members, was a stylish mix of their backgrounds and cultural traditions. The native Houstonian (Catherine) and the Baton-Rouge-raised (Dean), made sure to include both Tex-Mex and Cajun cuisine on the dinner menu—from tacos to crawfish étouffée—and ended the memorable evening with a traditional Louisiana “second line” procession down Texas Ave.
