Ivy Style’s Millennial Fogey columnist Daniel Greenwood was “greenwed” this weekend in Cape Cod, where his family lives, to his lovely fiancée Sarah.

The ceremony was held in a charming, rustic Episopal church, with baroque guitar music provided by Robert Wolf, a coworker of Dan’s at J. Press. Wolf also provided reception entertainment with a jazz trio.

With some early encouragement from yours truly, the groom opted to wear an updated version of formal daywear: striped trousers, morning coat, double-breasted waistcoat, but standard shirt and tie.


The occasion gave me the opportunity to spend a few days exploring the Cape for the first time. I got to swim (on the bay side), and nothing refreshes my soul quite like swimming in a natural body of water. Played several golf courses, including Highland Links, which was founded in 1892 and regarded as the most Scottish-style course in America.

Congrats to the bride and groom, and Ivy Style will return to regular programming tomorrow. — CC

    Congratulations Dan & Sarah!

    wait, what? Chens, you’ve never been to the Cape?!

    From a fogey in real time to the Millenial Fogey and his non-fogey bride, “MAZELTOV.”

  6. Haven’t been on the East Coast that long and, as mentioned previously, freelance writers don’t get vacations!

  7. By chance you didn’t visit nearby Osterville? Nice Episcopal church there.

  8. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs.Greenwood! Also, Christian, I see your influence in the form of a PoW tie. I hope you got to watch the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay.

    Congratulations. Many you be blessed with many healthy and happy years together.

  10. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs.Greenwood!

    Congratulations to the Greenwoods. The bride is lovely and, as one would expect, Mr. G. could not be more elegantly clad. Best wishes to the newlyweds from a husband of 35 years and counting.

  12. Congratulations to the Greenwoods. May all your joys be pure joys, and all your pain champagne.

  13. Great pics.

    BTW —

    A parish is “Episcopal.” A parishioner is “Episcopalian.” As in:

    “Our man Spalding is a semi-devout Episcopalian who prefers Rite One at the St. John’s Episcopal downtown.”

  14. Yes, not sure why that slip-up. Was still working on my morning coffee. And I was at church just the Sunday before the trip…

  15. Congratulations! Always nice to see a groom who knows how to dress. I see so many with, in my humble opinion, awful outfits. I’m quite sure most grooms just let the bride and/or the goons at the rental tux mall shops pick everything out… But not the millennial fogey! The morning coat is superb.

    Wish you both a lifetime of health and happiness!

  16. Congratulations, Fogey!

  17. Congratulations to Daniel and his new bride. I had a very pleasant chat with him in J Press back in June – a real gent.

  18. With all the talk about Millennials’ neglect of organized religion, this moment serves as a (most) welcome counterpoint. Inspiring.

  19. Thanks for the well-wishes folks, I regret to say that there was a distinct dearth of unattached young ladies at the wedding, we’d hoped to hook CC up with one of Sarah’s Tufts classmates but his excellent dance skills must have been too intimidating. Wonderful time all around.

    SE: Vows were from 1662 BCP, multiple hymns sung by the full congregation. No unity candles to be seen, I promise you.

  20. To DCG: So you didn’t change “it is meet and right so to do” to “it’s okey dokey” as is the case in many modern Episcopal churches?

  21. @Wianno85

    Many Episcopal churches have gone pretty modern and casual, but Rite II is a touch above okey dokey.

  22. Was there a beadle? Verger? Incense? Old English surplices?

    If you tell me there was a cotta-and-cassocked choir processing to “And Did Those Feet In Ancient Time” (tune: Jerusalem), I’ll declare you the best Millennial Fogey EVER.

    Congrats, btw. Are sure you didn’t graduate from Sewanee?

    Where can you get a morning coat with the proper length tails(touching the bend in the back of the knee)? Had a hard time when I got married in the early eighties.

    @ Arthur McLean: either a quality MTM service, bespoken, or hunt through Ebay and in particular, Etsy, and you can definitely find gems if you know yr measurements exactly! I have a Vicuna one by the Brothers Brooks that I got for a song off of Etsy. Fit’s perfectly, and much more comfortably than Great-Great-Granddad’s one.

    Not sure how I missed the congratulatory train here, but Mazel Tov indeed Mr. & Mrs. Greenwood! (decidedly late to the show on this….)
