Valentine’s Day with IntheNOLA’s favorite couples: Jeff and Reagan Charleston

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
With all this Mardi Gras-ing going on, we hope y’all didn’t forget about a small little day coming up this Saturday…Valentine’s Day! To celebrate such a special day, we’re featuring a different IntheNOLA couple each day this week!
Jeff and Reagan Charleston
 
Former New Orleans Saints player Jeff Charleston and his wife and jewelry designer Reagan have been together for five years after meeting each other at a Monday Night Football after party in 2009. They went on their first date to a Hornets/Pelicans game and dinner at the Italian Barrel in the French Quarter…and the rest we can say is history!
 
Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Mardi Gras, “there is literally an endless array of things to do,” Reagan said. “We typically do a special dinner, either out or at home, but this year, we will be attending several parties throughout the day and then heading to dinner that night. As for suggestions, if you haven't made your reservations or ordered flowers, do that now! My favorite flowers come from Perfect Presentations on Fulton St. They make every Valentine’s Day extra special. This year, the Endymion Extravaganza falls on Valentine’s Day, so many couples will be celebrating their day in the Dome in gowns and tuxes. I love it!”
 
Here are some of Jeff and Reagan’s favorite Valentine’s Day to dos:
 
Dinner at home or at a restaurant on Valentine’s Day?
Reagan: If we aren’t going out to eat, I'm cooking! I enjoy cooking as much as I do dining out, so either makes me happy! I especially love making Italian food. If I'm not cooking, it’s either Root or Domenica.
 
Jeff:  I prefer at home if Reagan is cooking. I'm definitely not the chef; I'm spoiled. If we go out, I like to go to either Root or Mr. B's Bistro.
 
What’s your preference on Valentine’s Day: chocolates, flowers, jewelry, or a teddy bear?
Reagan: I have my own jewelry line, Reagan Charleston Jewelry, so Jeff's lucky enough to never have to buy jewelry again! My second passion is floral design, so if he brings home several bunches of white roses or peonies, I am over the moon!
 
Jeff: I always bring home flowers and chocolates, but I nearly always end up eating her chocolates!
 
Champagne or cocktails?
Reagan: Champagne! You can never go wrong with bubbly!
 
Jeff: For Valentine’s Day, certainly champagne.
