Romance, Louisville Style

Historic Downtown has had it’s share of romantic moments, like CJ Chenier band member Louisiana Slim marrying a woman he met at the Street Faire, and here’s another sweet story to add to the archives.

Tyler Schultz was planning to propose to his sweetheart, Emily Branson, and wanted to make it special, so he choreographed a Louisville-only moment: a proposal – accepted of course – followed by a horse drawn carriage ride and then a celebration at Por, pictured above. Well done Tyler, may you and Emily have a long a happy life together.
