This couple's description could best be described as "awkward" and at worst be described as "overwrought." But, then again, so could most NYT wedding announcements.
I didn't announce my engagement on Facebook or Twitter, and there wasn't a Youtube video documenting the event. I don't have a ring. Our wedding will be a 15-minute ceremony at the registry office, in the afternoon of a weekday, and the reception will be dinner that night at some restaurant with immediate family and one best friend each.
That does still legally count as an actual marriage, right? Right?
