Today the singer Rufus Wainwright will wed his longtime partner Jorn Weisbrodt at the Wainwright home in Montauk, N.Y., and MoMA PS1 Director Klaus Biesenbach will be among the 250 guests, along with Yoko Ono and Carrie Fisher. And, according to a recent post on Mr. Biesenbach’s very frank Twitter account, it seems as though he’s a best man!
The tweet read in full: “i am first timer in being a best man at a wedding…at least i already delivered the speech ok! pic.twitter.com/hiaNoHi0.” It’s unclear if Mr. Biesenbach is “the” best man or one of several best men, but, hey, he gave a speech!
In lieu of gifts the couple is asking that guests donate money to fund their purchase of a 25-foot-long Airstream trailer.
“and here is the priestess doing the ceremonies pic.twitter.com/Sy7x8CC8,” Mr. Biesenbach tweeted after that.
