Wedding Announcement: On September 1, Peregrine Gerard-Little and Conner Wiktorowitz were married at the Gerard-Savage house on Cape Cod. It was a small wedding, with only immediate families, but a very festive occasion. Conner's brother officiated at the ceremony as a Solemnizer, a status Massachusetts confers for 24 hours if you fill out the right forms. Instead of a wedding cake, Alice Gerard made three blueberry kuchens for the wedding dinner. Perry and Connor lived in Palisades with Perri's parents, Annie Gerard and Fred Little, during the last year, but left a few days after the wedding for Illinois, where Perri will be working in archaeology at the Argonne National Laboratory.
