Walkin’ to New Orleans

09 May

Well, not literally….but going nonetheless.

Another of Mr. D’s nephews is getting married and it is shaping up to be the affair of the season. The nice thing about a large family is there is always a big event coming up. Over the last few years, many of the 28 grandchildren have reached majority and are of marrying age, so we’ve had quite a few big events. I’ve highlighted both Mark and Ellen’s weddings here over the last year. We missed nephew John’s wedding in November.

What makes this a little different is that it will be taking place in New Orleans (the bride’s hometown) with 50 or so of the groom’s family traveling and converging at one of the swankiest hotels in New Orleans. It even has a revolving bar that I can only frequent if I sit on the floor.

The happy couple is Paul and Alison.

You wouldn’t think that lawyers could have such sweet, innocent faces. Our family has been truly blessed by the caliber of spouses our children have been able to secure. Alison is no exception. A wonderfully smart, beautiful and funny girl, she is the perfect compliment to our sweet little “Chop”. (Paul’s nickname, i.e., Pork Chop)

I’ll have more on the whole wonderful affair on Monday, so I’ll leave you with….

Love & Happiness, Marc Broussard
