Other cool stuff we should know about:

The bride flew in from Berlin, the groom from London, to get married in NYC. Wally (aka Waldo) also flew in from London for the event. Both wore clothes that had been given to them by friends, years ago. Very little was planned. The guests were given about a month’s notice. The confetti was homemade by the flower girls. The groom broke his finger the week before, cycling home from his stag do (that is “bachelor party” in English).

Favorite thing about the wedding:

    Though we are fond of and all versions of “Let’s Face the Music and Dance,” our favorites are those of Fred Astaire and Urbie Green. Sorry, Nat.
