It makes me remember the write-up in the New York Times about our wedding. I had submitted our wedding, more or less, as a lark. I had some extra time between patients at Boston Children's one day and I figured - why not? We have a cute story, met in NYC and I thought that might peak someone's interest. My college roommate had this amazing article about her wedding and I thought I'd give it a try. So, I emailed off the one paragraph summary of our wedding and promptly forgot about it. On the submission form, you have to list the names of your parents, priest and contact information. Well, I completely forgot to tell anyone that I had submitted our wedding, mainly because I really didn't think we would make it in to the paper. Then, a few weeks later, I was talking to my father and he mentions he got this strange phone call, from someone claiming to be from the New York Times, who was clearly trying to steal his identity - asking all of these personal questions. Ooops! So, I finally explained that he was a real reporter and here's the story below.
If anyone wants help with ideas for creating an inter-faith, multi-cultural wedding, just let me know! There are some things I would have done differently now in retrospect, but it was a beautiful day.
