Shruti and I met at a happy hour during the AALS conference in January, 2011. We were introduced by Tax Prof Brian Galle. Shruti and I dated for the next year and a half while we were both living in Washington, DC. This past year we’ve been living on opposite coasts, but struggling with the distance has only helped to strengthen our relationship and our resolve to spend our lives together. We even co-authored a short paper, combining my interests in taxation with Shruti’s expertise in international and comparative business law. Our interfaith wedding ceremony was held at Stewart’s Cove Beach, in Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, followed by a reception at a nearby hall. Our wedding was a small and intimate gathering of family and a few close friends. In attendance were Tax Prof Mark Gergen and tax lawyers Elizabeth Chien and Ameeta Patel.

Alex and I met at UW-Madison's welcome reception for new faculty two years ago. Our academic interests are the converse of each others'. Alex is in the political science department, but spent a year in law school and works on judicial politics. I am of course at UW Law School, but spent a year in a political science Ph.D program and work on the politics of tax policy. We got married at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Madison, followed by a reception at a restaurant called the Old Feed Mill.
Attending the wedding were tax lawyers Bob Fahrenbach, Jeanne Fahrenbach, Melissa Galetto, Brian Jenn, Kristin Keeling and Laura Leitch; non-tax lawprofs Lisa Alexander, Ann Althouse, Rob Anderson, Steve Barkan, Tonya Brito, Andy Coan, Anuj Desai, Alex Huneeus, Cecelia Klingele, Michele LaVigne, Ion Meyn, Thomas Mitchell, John Ohensorge, Margaret Raymond, Joel Rogers, David Schwartz, Mitra Sharafi, Mark Sidel, Steph Tai, Bill Whitford and Jason Yackee; and political science profs John Ahlquist, Rick Avramenko, Rikhil Bhavnani, Barry Burden, John Coleman, Mark Copelovitch, Scott Gehlbach, Eunsook Jung, Dan Kapust, Helen Kinsella, Alex Kuo, Melanie Manion, Ken Mayer, Ryan Owens, Maggie Peters, Jon Pevehouse, Byron Shafer, Nadav Shelef, Scott Straus, Kathy Cramer Walsh, Jessica Weeks, David Weimer and Susan Yackee.

Congratulations to Tax Prof Pat Cain and her long time partner Jean Love, who were married on October 4, 2008 in San Francisco. Pat previously taught at the University of Texas School of Law for 17 years (1974-1991) and at University of Iowa School of Law for 16 years (1991-2007), before moving with Jean to Santa Clara University School of Law in 2007 as the Inez Mabie Distinguished Professor of Law. I got to know Pat as a contributor to our Tax Stories book; her chapter is one of my favorites -- Ch. 9: The Story of Earl: How Echoes (and Metaphors) from the Past Continue to Shape the Assignment of Income Doctrine. (Pat and Jean are pictured in front of the Empress Hornblower on which they got married in San Francisco Bay; their Iowa friends and colleagues celebrated at the same time at a party hosted by Bill and Barby Buss at their home, dubbed the Empress Cornblower for the evening.)

Tax Profs Miranda Perry and Vic Fleischer tied the knot Saturday at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, followed by a reception at the Kitchen [Upstairs], a Boulder wine bar. The happy couple reports:
Miranda’s judge, Judge Morris (Buzz) Arnold of the 8th Circuit, officiated. He managed to work in a wonderful legal history describing how the marriage contract is rooted in the common law of private ordering.
Attending were Tax Profs Eric Zolt (UCLA) and his wife Kathy Smalley (who worked on the Tufts concurrence for Justice O’Connor!), and Adam Chodorow (Arizona State) and his wife Rebel Rice. Also in attendance were tax lawyers Sang Ji (White & Case), Katharine Moir (Simpson Thatcher), and John Melfi (Holland and Hart). Rounding out the tax expertise was Gail Perry, CPA, Miranda’s aunt and author of many tax books, including “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Doing Your Income Taxes.” Some non-tax Profs also celebrated with us, including Matt Bodie (Hofstra), Rebecca Hollander-Blumoff (Wash U), David Zaring (Washington & Lee), Paul Ohm (Colorado), Clare Huntington (Colorado), Nestor Davidson (Colorado), Meredith Harbach (NYU), and Kris Collins (Boston University).
