THE TIMES LETS US DOWN: Here's one of the wedding announcements from today's Sunday Styles section:
Pamela Dawn Baker and Henry G. Miller, lawyers, are to be married today at the 200 Fifth Club in Manhattan. Judge Albert M. Rosenblatt of the New York Court of Appeals will officiate.

The bride, 32, is known as Dawn. She is an assistant corporation counsel for the City of New York. She graduated from the University of South Carolina, from which she also received a law degree. Her father, Dr. Edwin N. Rowley of Kingsville, Tex., is the chairman of the communications department at Texas A&M University there. Her mother, Pamela McDaniel, lives in Bishopville, S.C. The bride is the stepdaughter of Edward Baker of Columbia, S.C., and uses his surname.

The bridegroom, 72, is a partner in Clark, Gagliardi & Miller, a law firm in White Plains. He is on the board of Pace University. He received undergraduate and law degrees from St. John's University in Queens. His parents, the late Anne and Henry A. Miller, lived in Brooklyn. His father was an office manager at the New York Life Insurance Company in Manhattan.

The bridegroom was a widower.

Wait -- she's 32, he's 72 and you're not going to tell us how they met? What they see in each other? What her parents think? Whether any life insurance policies have been taken out recently?

So, in the absence of good Times reporting, we go to old reliable,, where we learn:
--They met a Westchester County Bar Association function;

--He proposed over a romantic dinner at La Caravelle; and

--They've registered at Bloomingdales, Macy's, Williams-Sonoma, Neiman Marcus, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware and Fortunoff, showing a particular overlapping, redundant fondness for Bernadaud Louvre china and crystal.

On a happier note, a Reader's Note in today's section indicates that beginning next week, Lois Smith Brady will have a weekly column tracking the lives of couples whose marriages were highlighted in the Vows column. If it's as good as this week's quintuple update, we're psyched.
