But when the two writers got married at the Nicollet Island Pavilion back on September 20th, a Minnesota Daily columnist named Ashley Dresser found herself in exactly that position, and now I know that Chuck Klosterman's family was prepared to bus their own table, that Melissa Maerz wore a feather boa with her wedding dress, and that the couple left the wedding in a horse-drawn carriage. I know all of this because she wrote a fucking column about it.
Now, granted, the Minnesota Daily is actually a student-run daily newspaper serving the University of Minnesota, so it's not too big a deal, and the whole thing is actually really sweet. Also, I would have welcomed media coverage of my own wedding, of course, because I'm an ego-maniac. But still, this was totes inappropriate, right?
