OK, this week’s New York Times couple isn’t even trying not to get the PHI Monday nod. They’re the featured wedding this week in the paper, and they’re the featured wedding here in our hearts. Why?
* Upon first chatting up his bride, “Mr. Garbarino remembered: ‘I made some ridiculous drolleries…'”
* The bride describes their wedding on the roof of the Chateau Marmont as “Gatsbyesque.” Yes, if Jay Gatsby had taken to hosting parties in the same venue where Britney and Lindsay swap fluids with professional greaseballs, while wearing the ugliest dress to which Ralph Lauren has ever affixed his name. And if Jay Gatsby was ever the type of jackass who would use trite and woefully inaccurate expressions to describe his parties.
* “Mr. Garbarino wore a white Prada tuxedo with white Converse sneakers.”
* Because one of their guests actually uttered the words, the couple “wears adulthood lightly–and I mean that in the most delicious sort of way.”
