Las Vegas - A Great Place For a Wedding!

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have heard that I was recently in Las Vegas to attend the wedding of my niece, Sophie Herbert, and her betrothed, Dan Slater.  Why Vegas?  Well, Dan has written an excellent book called Love in the Time of Algorithms, officially released today.  It is all about the world of online dating, which he studied extensively for the last two years.  Sophie and Dan did not meet online, however, Dan was scheduled to be in Vegas at an online symposium held last week and Sophie already had plans to join him.  When Dan proposed at Thanksgiving, the couple thought, rather than have a large and stressful wedding, why not just tie the knot in Vegas with a small group of family and friends?  The idea sounded like a lot of fun and it dawned on me that my Weddings magazine has never featured a Las Vegas wedding!  Darcy Miller, the Editorial Director for Martha Stewart Weddings, and her staff went to work and came up with an exciting plan with Wynn Las Vegas, the luxury resort and casino, the brainchild of my friend, Steve Wynn.  I must say that it was a whirlwind couple of days and I have to thank everyone at the Wynn for their gracious and generous hospitality.  Everything was perfect!
