The Big Easy Comes to Milwaukee
Posted by Christine Hurt

Bigeasy_2 Friday, we were honored to attend a wedding at the Gesu Parish on campus at Marquette.  What was notable about this wedding is that it was originally scheduled to take place on Friday, December 30 in New Orleans.  Obviously, after Hurricane Katrina, the wedding was relocated to Milwaukee, where both the bride and groom reside.  However, the spirit of the Big Easy came with Louisiana relatives.  One example:  the reception lasted from 4:00 p.m. until 12:30 a.m.  (At least, it officially ended at 12:30; who knows where it went from there!)

One of the scriptures (from the Song of Songs) read at the ceremony was very fitting for this couple, who realized that love is too strong to be doused by a tiny thing like a Category 5 hurricane:

Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away.

Best wishes to Tom and Lise!!
