“His marriage with a little person, Lavinia Warren, became front-page news. The wedding took place at Grace Episcopal Church and the wedding reception was held at New York City’s Metropolitan Hotel. The couple stood atop a grand piano at the reception to greet some 10,000 guests. The best man at the wedding was George Washington Morrison (“Commodore”) Nutt, another dwarf performer in Barnum’s employ.”
