The Washington Post needed a wedding columnist, and reporter Ellen McCarthy didn’t want the job if it meant writing up detailed descriptions of gowns and floral arrangements. Instead, she proposed a column that would explore couples’ relationships and how they got to the aisle to begin with. After covering more than 200 nuptials, she has collected the lessons she learned along the way in a new book. We talk with her about the realities of finding true love in our modern world and the value of a great story.
