Andrew and John Wed

Andrew Solomon and John Habich
The Spencer Estate, England

This was some wedding! The article is kind of vacuous, as most of these NYT wedding reviews seem to read, whether they are about gay or straight weddings. The articles contain a consistent tone of schmaltz. But, it is a wedding, after all---that event filled with enormous optimism and adoration, blind to all history. However, the wealth of the two men sets a different twist to the story and suggests an elevation of the of gay knot tying ceremony to a new height. I pray it is a wild glitch that won't need repeating. Excess is a difficult thing to watch, so you may not even want to look at the article's media offering, but then again...
