Legal Eagle Wedding Watch NYT wedding announcements Above the Law.jpgFor the second month in a row, ATL’s “Couple of the Month” contest was a total snoozefest. Once again, the winning couple prevailed with approximately 50 percent of the vote. Unlike certain past races, there was no exciting, eleventh-hour victory by an underdog.
There was a last minute surge by Sandee Brawarsky and Barry Lichtenberg. But they were unable to catch a certain Supreme Court clerk and her high-powered hubby:

Legal Eagle Wedding Watch NYT wedding announcements Above the Law.jpgWe’ve named all the winners in Legal Eagle Wedding Watch for the month of December 2006. So now it’s time to vote for the December “Couple of the Month.”
We expect this to be a highly competitive contest. There were actually five wedding weekends in December, and in one of the weeks, we had a tie. So there are no fewer than six couples in competition, with similar overall scores (two 8.90s, two 8.75s, one 8.70, and one 8.37).
If you’d like to review the couples one more time, our original write-ups — with scores, links to their NYT wedding announcements, and photos (in some cases) — appear after the jump.
But if you’re ready to vote, here’s the poll:


To check out the field one more time, look at their profiles, which appear after the jump.

Legal Eagle Wedding Watch NYT wedding announcements Above the Law.jpgOne of you recently commented: “Retire this feature until the spring, dude. No one gets married in December.”

We beg to differ — unless you consider one of the Elect to be a nobody. A surprisingly high number of lawyers got hitched on the weekend before New Year’s Day. We even had to make some cuts.

Here are the three couples from the December 30-31 weekend that we will review:

1. Margaret Cimino, Jaime Wolf

2. Theane Evangelis, Teddy Kapur

3. Courtenay Seabring, Nathaniel Ebel

Random aside: The best tidbit from the December 31 wedding announcements appeared in the write-up for two non-lawyers, Darcy Wolcott and Thomas Proctor:

Mr. Proctor’s forebears, the Hood and Towne families, settled the towns of Topsfield and Ipswich, Mass., in the early 1600’s. One ancestor, Mary Towne Easty, was hanged as a witch in 1692 in Salem.

If you can claim an ancestor who was executed for being a witch, you get an automatic 10 for your “Family” score.

Scores and commentary for the newlywed lawyer couples, after the jump.
