My Favorite Things: A Tulane Love Story

IMG_2933

There must be something in the water at Tulane University.  Maybe it's the inevitable charm of New Orleans, or maybe it's because the beer flows like water. Nevertheless, there is something magical about that city!  After all, Doctor J and I met at Tulane and got engaged in New Orleans.  Post engagement we found ourselves in Scott Cowen's office, the fabulous University President.  He told us that 12% percent of Tulane couples eventually tie the knot, pretty astounding!

Last weekend Doctor J and I attended the wedding of R & J.  They met at Tulane, through yours truly, and were married in Ft. Lauderdale.  They survived several years of long distance dating and now are  living in Houston as Mr. and Mrs.

Now, here are a few of My Favorite Things from R & J's wedding weekend. They worked with "Celebrity Planner" Heather Lowenthal of Posh Parties & Paper.

1) The "I always cry at weddings" tissue placed so creatively on the wedding program

2) The chair coverings that matched the bride's dress

3) Monogrammed linen napkins! (and the beautiful place setting).  I love this personal touch and it is something the couple will have for the rest of their lives. Can you say dinner parties?!

4) And last, but certainly not least, reuniting with the Tulane crew

Lovingly yours, until the next wedding...
