It's not every day that one of my favorite designers gets hitched, so I'm excited to tell you that designer Jonathan Adler and Barney's New York creative director (and author) Simon Doonan plan to legally tie the knot in mid-September in California, according to New York.
But their big day won't be your usual ostentatious celebrity wedding. In the New York article, Doonan was quoted saying, "I always thought we were married, so I don’t feel like celebrating the fact that the government’s allowing me to think I’m married. It’s more like paying a parking ticket. We’ll have a nice romantic dinner, him and me."
Apparently, it was Adler's mom and sister who really got the ball rolling on this wedlock. Doonan went on to say, "They’ve been incredibly supportive and kept an eye out on what was going on, and they said, ‘Oh, you guys should get married
in California.’ So it was them that sort of prompted us."
In case you're wondering where the cute couple is registered, you can stop looking, as they apparently are happy enough just to have each other. "We have enough tchotchkes at home for one lifetime," said Doonan. Well, I'd hope so, considering that Adler himself is a purveyor of tchotchkes! I for one love this wacky, creative duo, and am happy to see them making it official — even if it's just like paying a parking ticket.
