Heights Couple’s Wedding Takes Guests to Xanadu

The NY Post writes about the wedding of Heights Chiropractic and Rehabilitation owner Rudy Gehrman’s and  Avellyn Pilates & Movement owner Linda  Salerno in today’s edition. The couple’s 70s themed nuptial featured guests in full costumes from the era and a marching band. The couple will be honeymooning first in Montauk and then Africa according to the report:

NY Post: Immediately after being announced husband and wife, the Hungry Marching Band burst into the Grand Prospect Hall’s atrium to lead their 300 costume-clad guests to the reception, which included a costume contest and a performance by the Lady Circus of NYC, complete with stilt-walkers and fire-twirlers. The couple shared their first dance to Hot Chocolate’s “You Sexy Thing” and continued the celebration with an after-party that lasted until 4 a.m.

Gehrman is originally from Buffalo, N.Y. while his bride is a native of Boston, MA.

    It all sounds over-the-top and vulgar. Is there a reason that this couple’s wedding was thought to be newsworthy?

    Ask Rupert Murdoch.

    Have you ever read a newspaper before? They have sections devoted to engagements and weddings, and the more colorful, the better. I don’t think this was competing with the latest update from S. Ossetia.

    Jazz, I was asking why BHB thought this story was newsworthy. There’s nothing surprising about the Post’s interest in this couple’s wedding.

  • Jazz

    I’ll take a stab at that. Because they’re from Brooklyn Heights?

  • Topham Beauclerk

    Ah, Jazz, where would we be without you? You bring light to dark corners.

    Watch out for Montauk Monsters.
