If you're not familiar, it is an elite measure of status to make the NY Times Wedding announcements. You typically need Ivy league level educations and an interesting story and/or famous or well to do parents.
One of my guilty pleasures is reading these for the humor aspect of how hoyty these couples are. This is the first Gator couple I've seen.
She is an assistant state attorney at the Miami Dade State Attorneyís Office in Miami. She graduated cum laude from the University of Florida, from which she also received a law degree cum laude
The couple met in September 2006, through mutual friends at a tailgate party for the Florida Gators football team.
Mr. Caswell, a former mellophone player in the university marching band, regaled Ms. Bryan with stories of road trips with the band.
ďHe was funny and very friendly and kind of obsessed with the Gators football team,Ē Ms. Bryan said. ďI soon learned that going to football games on a Saturday in the South is like a religious experience, people are camped out in RVís for days, and tailgate parties are an art.Ē
She had studied opera and classical voice at Manhattan School of Musicís high school conservatory program. On some of their dates she took Mr. Caswell to plays, musicals, operas and concerts, and he soon came to appreciate Sondheim and Rodgers and Hammerstein as much as Tebow.
His enthusiasm for the Gators, though, remains unquenchable. The teamís fight song is on his answering machine. And on the summit of the wedding cake were figurines of the teamís mascots, Albert and Alberta, he holding a football in a tuxedo and top hat and she in a white wedding dress holding a bouquet of orange and blue, the teamís colors
