Rohling Wedding Weekend

Last Friday morning Jason and I headed to New Orleans for Dan and Monica's wedding weekend.  When we arrived the cab dropped me directly at Cafe Adelaide where Monica was hosting a lunch for the bridesmaids.  It was so fun and the food was yummy.  I had a bowl of turtle soup and a spinach salad.  After lunch, we had a few hours at the hotel before changing and heading across the street to the church for rehearsal.  Dan and Monica were married at Immaculate Conception Cathedral and it was so beautiful.  While at rehearsal I received an email that our flight on Sunday had been cancelled.  Lovely.  I spent the rest of the evening trying to get through to Continental and finally after midnight I got us on a new flight home.  Crisis averted.  Rehearsal dinner was at Palace Cafe.  The food was so fantastic.  They  had passed hors d'oevres of shrimp remoulade and duck egg rolls when we arrived.  For dinner, everyone received a crab cheesecake appetizer, a choice between salad or turtle soup, a choice between a filet or fish and white chocolate bread pudding for dessert.  I felt like I should be rolled out after dinner.  We all headed to Pat O'briens on Bourbon street after dinner for a little while before heading back to the hotel.  Saturday was a busy day of getting ready for the wedding, pictures, ceremony and reception.  The reception was held at the security center downtown.  Everything was beautiful, and we had a great time all weekend.  Congratulations to our good friends The Rohlings.  Welcome to married life!  We love ya'll.
