1. “Willy made me a charm of his profile as a birthday gift—which I wore around my neck. We printed our profiles on our invitations, and also on coasters as an ode to that. The coasters were appropriate because we’re cocktail fanatics. One of our ceremony readings was literally the recipe for a Manhattan.”
