A year and a half after meeting at a New Year’s Eve party, Kermit proposed to Janet in Paris. Their wedding will be outdoors in June, at his family’s house in Westchester. The evening’s vibe: “Let’s call it ‘English country,’” says Janet. “And we may have a gypsy guitarist play during the cocktail hour.”

“We incorporated his love of cider and the Jamaican element with pimento dram. It’s a good outdoor drink—more ‘Woodstock country’ than ‘English country’, I suppose. Plus, this is a manly drink and he seems like a manly guy (see woodworking!).”
