Will Mary Cheney submit her wedding photo to the New York Times?

When I heard the news that Mary Cheney and longtime partner Heather Poe got married last Friday, I wondered: Will this lead the New York Times “Weddings and Celebrations” pages one of these Sundays?

I called New York Times society news editor Robert Woletz to see.

“It’s hard to say,” he says, because the Cheneys haven’t submitted a wedding photo or details about the memorable day to the newspaper.

“Typically they approach us,” he says of couples who get the longer features in the Sunday wedding pages, “but something that’s newsworthy might deserve some extra effort.”

Woletz took my contact information and said he’d keep us posted on the hunt for the Cheney/Poe wedding details and photos.
