U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Wedding

Rebecca & Peter

These lovebirds first met while attending the US Merchant Marine Academy. They were friends when they parted ways after graduation. Their destinies had different plans. They reconnected with each other years later, only this time – in New Orleans where Rebecca was stationed in the Coast Guard. They had and amazing first date and, as they say, the rest is history.

It was fitting that their wedding ceremony would take place at the Mariner’s Chapel, on the campus of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, back where it all started.

At the end of the service, the couple left the building by entering the archway lined by honor guards which symbolize safe passage into marriage. The bride and groom along with their friends and family hit the streets in true New Orleans tradition. With drums and decorative umbrellas in hand, we marched all to their beat towards the reception site where guests enjoyed great food and dancing.
