Essence Lee & Nicolas Souffrant Jr.

Venue: Royal Palm in Harvey, LA
Honeymoon: Riviera Maya, Mexico
Home: Boston, MA

Essence is an advertising account executive at Digitas. Nicolas is a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch. The lovebirds met through a mutual friend at a watch party for BET’s The Game and began dating a couple weeks later. After two outings Nicolas almost put Essence in the “friend zone” because he thought she wasn’t interested, but when she hinted at a third date his outlook changed. Nicolas loves that Essence challenges him “intellectually and spiritually” and she adores her husband’s patience and warm heart.

He knew he was in love when…

She started to challenge him spiritually.

She knew she was in love when…

He accepted all her flaws and imperfections and just loved her for who she was.

In 10 years we will be…

Proud parents of 8-year-old twins…wishful thinking!

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

How amazing marriage is. Especially when it’s with the perfect woman.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

How much food she has to cook in a week. Her husband requires full meals every day.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Try new restaurants.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

Any place with live music.

Our song is…

John Legend’s “All of Me.”

Our perfect date night is…

Any place we went when we were dating. We love memory lane.
