Love Was In The Air

The story of last night’s Compo Beach wedding goes way beyond the fact that it took place on the hottest day of the year.

Edwina Wilson and Matt Love were the lucky (if broiling) couple. Both are longtime Westporters.

Edwina’s grandfather — the late Ed Kahn — was chairman of the Board of Finance, and an RTM moderator. He helped the town purchase Longshore (where — of course — the post-wedding reception was held). Edwina (who was named for Ed) is in veterinary school in California.

Both she and Matt (a Staples grad) worked at the Saugatuck Rowing Club. He is pursuing a Ph.D. in psychology.

So — one day soon — they will be Dr. and Dr. Love.

How hot cool is that?!
