A few reasons our wedding would never have made the “Weddings and Celebrations” section of the Sunday New York Times.
- My father is not the retired director of the Princeton University Press.
- I am not a 30-year-old senior vice president of investment solicitation for C. P. Eaton Partners.
- We were not a well-positioned homosexual couple, the likes of which would make for a perfect misrepresentation of the frequency of homosexual marriages in New York State.
- Kerrie is not an architect, ballet dancer nor a bond analyst from India.
- Our family did not grow up in an affluent town filled with old money, like Old Greenwich, Conn., or Gig Harbor, Washington.
- No one in our family has worked for Sports Illustrated.
- We are not rich.
Go ahead. We dare you to find an ordinary wedding in the NYT Weddings section. Every single one of them has something extraordinary about it.
I guess that’s the idea. But it sure serves up an unrealistic view of the populace as a whole.
