Wedding bells

Brandy Evans, vice president of communications for the Shreveport-Bossier Convention & Tourist Bureau, is goin’ to the chapel.

And she is goin’ to get married.

Evans and Bossier Sheriff Deputy Dominic Claiborne will marry April 28 at the Gardens of the American Rose Center Hardtner Chapel, with the reception at Klima Rose Hall. (The perfect place since it is one of the sites she touts to the press and others in her job.)

The two met about a year ago at the opening of the Shreveport Convention Center. The first date was proposed via e-mail.

"What impressed me — he invited me to attend his church. That is very important to me. He is a strong Christian man," Evans said.

The icing on the cake: When he took her to Kon Tiki on their first date, he handed her a pink rose and pulled her chair out for her.

And he is one creative guy, to boot. Since a colleague is a wood worker, he commissioned four words - "Will you marry me?" - wrapped them up and gave them to Evans at Christmas. When she opened them, he got down on his knees and formally popped the question.
