New York Times Wedding Announcement of the Week

The bride of this week's Announcement has a famous name--widowed from a Whitney-- marrying a somewhat younger "independent painter and restorer of boats" originally from Brazil.

Francine Whitney and Fernando Banhara

They met at Consolidated Yachts while she was settling the estate of her late husband, who had a financial interest in the company. I can almost imagine it as a romance novel. A well-connected widow, a Brazilian man who is apparently good with his hands, it's all too good.

Here's the wedding announcement for her marriage to Gifford Whitney (a yachtsman and woodcarver!) from 1992.
