"Jim and Lise Anne Slatten opened their 10 Courtyard Circle townhome to a bar shower and crawfish boil for Eric Bartel and bride, as co-host B.J. Crist and friends of the groom gathered to wish them a marital bon voyage.

Bride-to-be Leslie Scarbrough is from Alabama, while Bartel is a local boy and former Outstanding Graduate at UL.

The groom’s father is former UL football coach Gary Bartel. The couple will be married May 19 in a Dallas wedding at Annabelle Mansion to be broadcast on WE Network’s “Platinum Weddings” later in the summer. Declared the bride: “It’s three weeks away, that’s 21 days — not that I’m counting.”
