LaTasha & Aaron Ferguson
June 17, 2017
Aaron and LaTasha Ferguson were married on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 601 Spring in Shreveport. Pastor Willie Giles, Jr. officiated. The bride is the daughter of Mr. Rickey White and Ms. Joyce Williams-Betts and the groom is the son of Rosemary Miles. A reception followed at 601 Spring.
“The old saying is, ‘you only get one chance to make a first impression,’ but unfortunately it was that saying plus ‘third time’s a charm’ when it comes to how we met one another,” said LaTasha.
At the time, LaTasha was working as a nutritionist assistant at a retirement home. One day at work, she crossed Aaron’s path while he and a relative were visiting the facility. Struck by Aaron’s handsome appearance, LaTasha wanted to learn more about him. As luck would have it, she worked alongside his cousin.
“I told her I was interested but it didn’t happen as quickly as I hoped,” she said.
LaTasha decided to send him a direct message through social media and the two talked for some time. However, the two drifted apart.
LaTasha moved on to working part-time as a cocktail waitress and bumped into Aaron for a second time. But the flame fizzled out again.
“By the time we crossed paths for a third time, he was working at the same nursing home as me. The same place I first laid eyes on him and from that time until now we have been inseparable,” she said. “So in case I didn’t make a good first impression, it was the charm that got him for the third time.”
Following a honeymoon in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, the couple has decided to reside in the Shreveport-Bossier City area.
