Eliza Harringtonn and Minor Myers III
I'm not being snide when I say I like the groom's name. I truly do. If I was going to be snide I would have instead chosen the couple with a 34 year age gap (the groom is 66, the bride 32) or the couple who were married by film critic Jeffrey Lyons.
Minor is a terrific name. It not only sounds good--like an old Puritan name such as Goody or Increase--but it also looks good written out. I can't say the same for Major as a name, nor Mr. Myers's brother's name--Joffre. I'm not certain if it's pronounced like the ballet company or something more nasally French.
