Katie and John began their married life together on June 18th at Subiaco Abbey. I asked Katie what her favorite memories from the day were and she said that doing the first look and spending that time together with John before the ceremony was her favorite. It calmed their nerves and actually let them soak in the day before starting up a full schedule of wedding day festivities. Another of her favorite memories was hearing her past student, Tess, sing "Better Place" during the ceremony. She did an amazing job! On the way out of the ceremony as Katie and John were walking back down the aisle her students (who were in the balcony) all shouted "WE LOVE YOU MRS. HALL!!!" and they all stopped and waved. It was the sweetest thing! They are going to have to get use to calling her Mrs. Hoyt now though ;) At the end of the reception Katie and John led a New Orleans second line wedding parade down through the town to the Eiffel Tower in Paris, AR. There they had a sparkler send off and then walked back to their reception to continue dancing!
