Episode #13 – A Love Story

Once upon a time there was a beautiful young lady who grew up in Louisiana, went to college in California and brought home a dashing your man from New York and married him.

This is a story that began on a ship on “Semester at Sea.” A college study abroad program started at Chapman University in 1965 to help students become well-rounded thought leaders and Global Citizens. Semester at Sea attracted students from all around the country and brought together a unlikely match a “southerner” and a “yankee.”

During Semester at Sea – Spring 2012 Bailey and Max along with 600 students and professors from all around the world and throughout the United States traveled 16 countries and circumnavigated the globe.

Bailey then returned to Chapman University in Orange, California where she was studying TV Broadcast Journalism and Max returned to Bentley University in Boston to complete his studies in Economics.  They were thinking this was a nice romance, but it won’t go anywhere. Low and behold cupid wouldn’t leave them alone and they continued to find time to see each other over long weekends from coast-to-coast.

Two years later, Max continued his education at University College of London and received a Masters in Economics.  Bailey studied at the London College of Fashion and worked for the NFL Network UK.  While living abroad they traveled extensively through Ireland explored Paris and Nice, Spain and Istanbul. They stayed in Athens and traveled throughout the Greek Islands.

After their studies in England Bailey and Max moved to Hattiesburg, MS while Bailey was a News Anchor and New Orleans Saints Cheerleader. During this time Max worked on his Dissertation to complete his Masters Degree.

After a quick year there, they headed to San Francisco where Max began his career in Sales and Bailey worked for a Venture Capital firm. They lived an enchanted life filled with dinners, music festivals, and hikes around the many beautiful vistas in California, etc.  They enjoyed the life of young professionals for almost three years, along with many of their friends from “Semester at sea.”

Max proposed to Bailey on a hike in the magical city of Carmel!  He thought the natural beauty of the land and sea would be the perfect place to get a yes from his “best girl” and it worked.

It was time to send out “save the date” invitations to friends they grew up with, those they met in college, friends they traveled around the world with, and family members. They wanted to follow the theme of ship and water indicative of “Semester at Sea” so they chose these romantic snapshots to portray their message.

On November 4, 2017 Bailey and Max were married in St. Louis cathedral overlooking Jackson Square in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.  The Cathedral-Basilica of St. Louis King of France is the oldest Catholic Cathedral in continual use in the United States.  It is also the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans.
