35 years ago Gay Cioffi and Mark Obenhaus conducted a three week love affair in the Hamptons. She was an assistant in artist Sheila Isham’s studio in Sagaponack, N.Y. and he a documentary filmmaker between projects. Somehow, the rendevous did not progress; perhaps because both were young and recently separated from their spouses.
But these two creative individuals found their way back to one another via Facebook. She was divorced and he had lost his wife after a five year struggle with cancer. In front of their grown children and 185 guests, the couple were finally married. Their joy is obvious in the wedding photos.
So … there is hope after all.
