Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler marry


Interior designer Jonathan Adler married Simon Doonan, creative director of Barneys New York, last Thursday in San Francisco, reports. The couple, who have been together for 14 years, signed their marriage papers at City Hall before holding a ceremony that included Jewish traditions at Clift Hotel that day. And the stylish pair proved that a City Hall ceremony can still be special: Doonan, who wore a Liberty shirt and Barneys Co-op jeans, said, "It was fun and happy." Adler, who wore Barneys Co-op jeans and a Fred Perry sweater, agreed: "I turned off the ringer on my BlackBerry. That's very romantic. It's a big deal for me to do that." —Kathryn Papanek

Wedding Wisdom: If you and your fiance are from different cultural or religious backgrounds think about including elements of both faiths in your wedding ceremony and reception. If you're getting married by a justice of the peace you can still have the groom step on a glass if one of you is Jewish. Or ask the officiant to read a psalm or biblical passage that is important to you. If you're not sure how to represent your background and religion, talk to your parents and relatives for ideas.
