Bells Will be Ringing!

For years I have watched hundreds of brides walk down the shaded alley of oaks and get married on the front lawn of Houmas House. And this year it is finally my turn!  I have met my fur-ever mate and we will exchange our nuptials in the late Fall of this year. The exact date will be announced in the coming months. It will be a grand event and will also coincide with the Grand Opening of the Great River Road Steamboat Museum.
Stay tuned as wedding plans are being fine-tuned. I can't wait to share this exciting day with the world!

Much Love,
Princess Maggie
