Congratulations to Andy and Helene!

by Bruce Stewart

Anyone who's been paying attention to the VoIP space for very long knows who Andy Abramson is, he's one of the most plugged-in and insightful people in our industry. Andy's VoIP Watch blog was one of the first sites I started paying attention to when I wanted to educate myself about the emerging telecom business, and its earned a permanent slot in my RSS reader. Andy is also a wine connoisseur (I've been lucky enough to attend one of the blogger dinners he puts together at many telecom events and greatly enjoyed the samples from his wine collection), so it's no big surprise that he chose to tie the knot with his fiance Dr. Helene Malabed at a famous vineyard in Montpeyroux.

Check out Andy's post for some of the tasty details (they arrived at the ceremony in a helicopter?!). And I for one was glad to read this bit:

Contrary to rumor, Helene and I DID NOT say I do via our Blackberry's or use a VOIP connection, though as AT&T's Product Manager Chris Wood commented, cell reception in the vineyard was a full five bars.

A hearty congrats to Andy and Helene from all of us here at ETel!

Yes, a helicopter it was! With over 50 witnesses on the ground seeing us come in over the hillside. Helene, now Mrs. Abramson, was quite surprised. Thanks for the kind words.
