25 Years and Counting
|L.A. City Hall, March 3, 1992|
Today is our 25th wedding anniversary! Since we met in New Orleans in 1990, we decided to get married on Fat Tuesday. On March 3, 1992, Larry and I met our small wedding party and the camera crew at the L.A. City Hall for the first day of our life together. We got married in the late morning on a gray and drizzley day. The rain cleared after the ceremony and we managed to grab a few photos outside with the L.A. City Hall in the background. After that, we had a lovely dim sum lunch at the Empress Pavilion Restaurant in China Town.
We had several celebrations AFTER our wedding day. My folks had a reception for us at the Del Rey Yacht Club in the Spring.

We had a big reception in our backyard in August with Louisiana style food and drink. THe Zydeco Party Band performed for the party, set against the backdrop of "The Late Mr. Pete Show" on KTLA. Sadly, most of the set has disintegrated, but it made for a perfect party environment. We know how to celebrate!

We spent our honeymoon on the romantic island of Catalina. This year, we're celebrating our anniversary in the beautiful desert town of Palm Springs!
