Josiah Hornblower And Jocelyn Hunter Were 'Born Rich'

Every week, Intern Alexis combs the Weddings and Celebrations section of the Times and clues us into which members of the elite class are pooling their resources. This week's column is a day late cause she was at a wedding over the weekend! Alanic.



A slew of good 'uns this week: Ondine Karady and New York Times reporter James Rutenberg were married by Times political correspondent Adam Nagourney in Montauk, Times-man Sam Roberts' son got married, Sarah Gegenheimer, the deputy communications director for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, married Frederick Baldassaro Jr., former deputy communications director for Gifford Miller, but it was Josiah Hornblower, great-great-great-great-great-grandson (yes, that's 5 "greats") and subject of our Favorite Documentary Ever "Born Rich," and his wife Jocelyn Hunter, who came out on top this week.
