I am attaching a piece Italian Vanity Fair published on my wedding (civil partnership). Wedding was in Glasgow, Scotland, on 23 Sept 2007; piece was published 11 Oct 2007. Also attaching the English translation.
I wore a green herringbone tweed suit made by a local Edinburgh tailor, and my partner wore a bespoke suit his father had made for him when he was 18 (which still fit). There were at least 10 Vassar grads in attendance. We had a Scottish Episcopal ceremony at which Jews and atheists took communion, and we were somewhat unofficially the first openly gay ceremony to be performed in a church in Scotland.
The inset photo on the fourth page is from our version of a rehearsal dinner -- a drinks party in a Victorian greenhouse two nights before the wedding. I'm wearing a seersucker suit by Dries van Noten.
Benjamin Morse '93
(Will be at the upcoming reunion.)"
