According the most authoritative source, i.e., the internet, the summer is the most popular season to tie the knot and to get married. And getting married in a big wedding this Saturday, practically in the middle of the summer, is Kyle Karches and my niece Beth Bange. Congratulations to the both of you! Family and friends will join in the festivities in Chicago.
There have been many other famous weddings in the past. Here are just a few:
May 1, 1967. Elvis gets married to Priscilla Beaulieu, to the disappointment of his many female admirers. He was 32 and she, 21.

April 19, 1956. Prince Ranier weds Grace Kelly.
1945. The Corleone Wedding. Many famous people attended this wedding, although many Senators and Judges could not attend but sent their congratulations (and their gifts) any way.
