Yesterday marked the merger of two rising lieutenants in Manhattan's Media Mafia as The New York Observer's Spencer Morgan and Vanity Fair executive fashion editor Alexis Bryan were married in Houston. But just who are these two newlyweds, really?
Two things to know about Morgan: (1) His granddad is Harry "Colonel Sherman Potter" Morgan from MASH; (2) he awesomely slapped fruitini-sipping Men's Vogue writer Hudson Morgan in the face for talking shit. He is also known to haunt media happenings and quote indiscrete journos when they're horrifically drunk and should know better, which often makes for great copy.
Alexis "is a daughter of Lucia R. Brandt and Shelby Bryan, both of Houston. The bride's father is a venture capitalist. From 1999 to 2001, he was a member of the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. Her mother retired as the editor of River Oaks Magazine in Houston. The bride is a stepdaughter of Louis K. Brandt." Mr. Bryan is also Vogue editrix Anna Wintour's boyfriend. And Alexis' brother, Jack, is a film student whose documentary on famed media watering hole Siberia is being screened at famed media watering hole Soho House later this month.
