Alixandra Smith & Daniel Richenthal Are A Success!

The Weddings and Celebrations in the Sunday 'New York Times' are a textual analysis-rebuffing, context-free and statistically random series of events described objectively that have nothing to do with the fact that you're single and still using that one dirty towel after you shower.

Martha Sutphen And Richard Stock Have Something To Sort Out

The weekly Weddings and Celebrations section in the 'New York Times' is your guide to who is superior to you—and who is worse than whom.

Greg Lindsay And Sophie Donelson Almost Have It All

The Weddings and Celebrations announcements in the 'New York Times' are a battlefield. Everyone there must stand alone.

Sarah Jewett & Brian Smith Are Totally Out Of Steps

Every week, the New York Times' Weddings and Celebrations section lets you know which powerful, rich, famous, and/or attractive people are joining like in holy matrimony and the conspiracy to grind your hopes and dreams to dust. And every week, our Intern Alexis subjects the happy couples to her tough-but-fair rating… » 10/15/07 3:30pm 10/15/07 3:30pm

Amy Bloom & Brian Ameche Are Nobody's Chattel

Each week, Intern Alexis surveys the Weddings and Celebrations section of the Times and subjects them to her patented rating scale so that we might know who is best preparing to be well-set-up after their divorces.

Elizabeth Goldhirsh & Eric Yellin Met On J-Date

Each week, the 'New York Times' publishes wedding announcements from the newsworthy set.

Jessica Joffe and Faran Krentcil Administer The Look Book Coup De Grace

"I love to consume. Consuming is my specialty," says 26-year-old, $3,500 purse owning private equity associate Natasha Mitra. She is why this feature, intended to stare deep into the dark night of New York magazine's Look Book feature, exists. But in some circular, paradoxical, almost Buddhist way, she's also why this… » 5/24/07 2:50pm 5/24/07 2:50pm
