082307: Brooklyn Wedding for Lead Singer of The New Pornographers

Weeks before the launch of “Challengers,” his band’s latest CD, the New Pornographers frontman A.C. Newman debuted his new life as the husband of Christy Simpson, the marketing manager at the band’s recording label. According to NY magazine, as the strains of Velvet Underground’s “I Found a Reason” echoed inside the Brooklyn Heights First Unitarian Church on August 4 ,2007, the bride walked toward the altar in a knee-length ivory dress, which she paired with a ribbon-edged, elbow-length veil. Befitting a member of a Juno Award-winning group, the groom donned a somber suit from British clothing company Ben Sherman in order to say “I do” to his love of the past two years.

The New York Times reported that the reception was held at the Park Slope, Brooklyn live music venue Union Hall, where Neko Case, the groom’s fellow band member, and Mates of State performed for a menagerie of family and friends.
