Shreveport supermodel Ariel Meredith made a trip home to Shreveport this weekend to be in a friend's wedding. 

Meredith tells KEEL news it's exciting to be home. She enjoys getting home a couple of times a year. She got to see old friends at the wedding and had fun with many of her childhood friends. She spent Sunday relaxing with her family. She also had her fill of crawfish and Mom's cooking.

She's headed back home to New York Tuesday, but is planning to return to Shreveport in May for the Mudbug Madness Festival.
