Love Martha's Vineyard Style


Ah, yes...love was in the air on the Vineyard early last month, when Teresa Clarke and John Ellis wed in Oak Bluffs.


I understand that the ceremony was beautiful and seasoned with humor as the couple shared anecdotes of their on again/off again relationship.


John Ellis is a professor in the department of anesthesiology and critical care at the Pritzker School of Medicine at the University of Chicago and was by all accounts - a confirmed bachelor.


Ms. Teresa is extremely accomplished in her own right as she holds three Harvard degrees, owns a boat that she sails on the Hudson River, and holds a super fabulous gig.
It is great to see Black people in their 40s get married versus the settling for usual living together.


Congratulations to the new couple and may your marriage be blessed!
