Our 15th Wedding Anniversary Trip to New Orleans 2010

Imagery of our 2010 trip to New Orleans and our 15 year wedding vow renewal... And they said it wouldn't last! We've been visiting the French Quarter on routine since 2004. Positively, we so enjoy walking the streets and experiencing the sound-smell-taste of the FQ. We returned for our 15th wedding anniversary. What Teresa didn't know is I had arranged to renew our wedding vows at the French Quarter Wedding Chapel, a place where two good friends of ours got married back in 2004.

I made contact with Lou Ann and Tony Talavera some months prior to the wedding. We had it all set up. I, on a ruse, would be taking Teresa out for a pre-anniversary dinner aperitif at Laffites Blacksmith Bar. Nowhere near the Wedding Chapel, but I was counting on her being directionally challenged to the extent she would not notice. We left the Le Pavillon, our hotel, and headed out into the Quarter. The temp was near 95 and the humidity commensurate. I could tell Teresa was getting irritated (she had wanted to take a cab to our ultimate destination, Emeril's NOLA restaurant) as we were both starting to heat up and melt in the Gulf heat.

When we reached the Wedding Chapel, I made note to her that "hey, this is where Barry and Kathy got married!". Lou Ann and Tony were waiting for us. I opened the door and Lou Ann exclaimed, "well hello Chris and Teresa!". Teresa immediately became suspicious, I later learned. Lou Ann had a rose waiting for Teresa, and the resulting ceremony was perfect! It was almost as wonderful as our original wedding! Reverend Tony was so well spoken, and Lou Ann made it all come together.

You will note a majority of our stay revolved around food. We went basically "to graze" on the local cuisine....
