Each week, the 'New York Times' publishes wedding announcements from the newsworthy set. Why do they make you so bitter, you horrible little nitpicker? Why can't you just be happy for them? What's wrong with you? Intern Alexis breaks down who won in the Land Of Vows.
What a sad week it was for wedding announcements. A violin teacher and a "sales manager," whatever that is. Young lawyers in love. This chick is the lawyer for 1800Mattress.com, and clearly she left the last "S" off for savings because she got married in MICHIGAN. (Dearborn, but still.) These two baby shrinks are an unholy union of the outer boroughs and Jersey. Also there were a lot of average Jews. But then, lurking amongst these ordinary folks, wow: A sterling winner.
