“I was minding my own business on the yellow line when all of a sudden, as we crossed the potomac, a wedding broke out. these are my new favorite people ever. but if I knew I’d have been going to a wedding, I wouldn’t have worn flipflops.”

Awesome! Congrats to the newlyweds!

  • I wonder if they gave their guests farecards saying “Tiffany and Brad/June 9, 2012”.

  • I’d be nervous about that dress getting caught in the escalator!

  • what do you think crossing the poto,mac had to do with it? crossing into dc or into va?

  • Well this is further proof we are all special snowflakes. Whatever works for ya.

    Congratulations to the happy couple!

  • Was it actually real? I ask only because I read about a performance art group (one that started some of the first flash mobs, no-pants subway rides, etc., back when that stuff was cool and exciting) that once staged a pretend wedding on a NYC subway car, just for the purpose of brightening the days of random subway riders.

    Either way, this is awesome.

    • About as real as same-sex marriage can be at this time, until some nutjobs force it to be outlawed once again.

    • Yup. Real couple, real wedding. I know them as well and they are just a cool couple.

  • A few weeks ago we were driving down 7th street Chinatown and witnessed an all crosswalk wedding. It was adorable. Talk about a quickie wedding!

  • starting your marriage out on the metro has got to be the most obvious omen

  • I hope there was no track work going on and they didn’t have to take a shuttle to the reception.

  • “I am so pissed, if I had just kept playing like I had been, there is a high possibility I could have been $100,000 richer.”

    You’re not familiar the (long) odds for winning the lottery?

    • Oops, this was supposed to be in the Rant/Revel thread.

      I blame it on its being Monday.

        Actually, your comment is amusingly appropriate–a wedding is indeed about betting on the odds and winning the lottery 🙂

        • Marriage shouldn’t have the long odds of lottery if you pick the person well!

        • Binpetworth — Heh heh; thanks! I like that idea. 🙂

          Anonymous 12:58 — I think Binpetworth was saying that finding someone you want to marry is like winning the lottery (not that marriage itself is like the lottery).

          Binpetworth — I have to ask… is your username “B in Petworth,” like “resident of Petworth whose name begins with B”?

          I am hoping it’s not “Bin Petworth,” which is what a British person might say to mean “Throw Petworth in the garbage.” 😉

            Hah! No Britishisms here–just my first initial and where I live. Though given the propensity of the residents in my particular street to litter, perhaps bin petworth may be suitable.

  • Studying some details in the photos, it seems that the happy couple was married on board car 2075, a Breda rehab.

  • On both the early (6:00 p.m.) and late (11:00) news yesterday, you featured a story about an (inter-racial, I think) couple in their wedding regalia being spotted on a metro train. One news host called it “the love train.”

    In 2003, I had a similar story for children published in Ladybug Magazine. I would love to offer a copy to your happy couple as a memento. Have you been able to get a name or contact for them?

    Many thanks, Myrina McCullough
