MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly with the story of an Italian wedding with cake and bridesmaids and just one person. Fitness instructor Laura Mesi married herself in a celebration of self-love and sologamy (ph). Mesi said she had promised friends if she didn't find her soulmate by her 40th birthday, she would do the wedding thing solo. Now this ceremony held no legal weight. On the other hand, no one to bicker with over who has to write the thank-you notes. It's MORNING EDITION.
