Mural in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia
When my wife and I were married, we had our announcement in the Washington Post. However, like Charlotte’s in Sex and the City, I came out with a smudge (black eye). Glad to see that didn’t happen to this local Del Ray couple in the national New York Times.

Via NY Times

Elizabeth Bach O’Connell, the daughter of Nancy J. Bach and Michael J. O’Connell of Hammondsport, N.Y., was married Saturday to Jesse Duncan Jardim, a son of Virginia E. Jardim and Philip M. Jardim of Berkeley, Calif. The Rev. Lynne S. Sharp, an Episcopal priest, performed the ceremony at Garrett Memorial Chapel in Bluff Point, N.Y.; the Right Rev. Gordon T. Charlton, a retired suffragan bishop from the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and a grandfather of the groom, took part.

The bride, 29, is the campaigns director for Green America, a consumer advocacy organization in Washington, where she leads efforts to improve labor and environmental practices at corporations. She graduated from New York University.

The groom, 35, owns Superior Bed Bug Solutions, a pest control company in Alexandria, Va. He graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The couple met in July 2012 as part of a group of friends who had gathered for a day of kayaking on the Potomac. Ms. O’Connell was late for the river trip but turned up later when the group met in Georgetown for drinks at one bar and for burgers elsewhere.
