I am truly blessed and excited to be engaged to the love of my life! This past weekend, I dropped to one knee and popped the question (to my fiancée’s surprise) at the luxurious Le Pavillon hotel in New Orleans. To catch her off guard, I told her that our visit to New Orleans was for a performance. You may have even noticed the concert announcement on LiveNation.com for Justin Garner Live in New Orleans but it was all a work. I told her that we would be around some important movers and shakers in the industry so I wanted her to dress to impress. I even recommended she get her nails done lol!

5:30 PM hit and it was time for my “sound check” so I rushed her out of our hotel room and downstairs to the lobby. We were met by Gina Wilks, Sales Director at Le Pavillon, who was totally in on my plan. She began to lead us down to the grand ballroom staircase and mid-way through I stopped and softly called out to my future wife. And then it happened! With tears and a sparkle in her eyes just as beautiful as the hand-picked diamond on her finger, she said yes!

We enjoyed a private dinner in the breathtaking Crystal Room, seated right beneath the famous Belle of New Orleans painting. The food was incredible and the staff waited on us hand and foot. Our room was covered in rose pedals. Champagne, cupcakes and desserts of multiple flavors were arranged elegantly. Together, we began to dream about the beautiful future ahead of us.
