Last Friday, Santa Barbara filmmaker Larry Nimmer was working on a new project he calls Everyone Has a Story, when “all of a sudden, Al Gore and his daughter’s wedding party showed up,” he said in an email. “And, before we knew it, they were getting married under the Torrey Pine on the Lucky Llama coffee house’s property.” Nimmer got out his iPhone and filmed the intimate ceremony between Sarah Gore and Patrick Maiani, a Santa Barbara real estate agent. Al Gore declined to be interviewed by Nimmer, who later kicked himself for asking an admittedly awkward question of the former vice president. See the video below.

Why can't they leave them alone? Let them celebrate the happy occasion in peace.

I was rather offended by this. Did Larry Nimmer ask if he could film the wedding and post it on the Internet? Al Gore may be a public figure, but his daughter isn't, and this certainly wasn't a "news event."

I agree with both of those comments above. The wedding should not have been videoed (except by and for the families) and the Independent should not have published it. Not everything that is in a public space is newsworthy and this most certainly was not. And as for the question, wow, how rude!

Al Gore invented the internet.

Nice lemonade video to ponder the broader issue of marriage.

Al Gore likely would not have answered any question regardless of the subject matter. Nor should he have done so.

That location is a highly public park in Carpinteria. Video record as desired.
