Last month (, 8/13/2010), we wrote about a couple whose wedding plans at Gates of Heaven in James Madison Park were abruptly canceled due to a mix-up involving Madison Parks Division staff. Ethan Fassbender and Mindi Stickel ended up having to find a new location for their wedding ceremony.

Mayor Dave Cieslewicz sent Ethan's mom, Lynette Fassbender, an apology (PDF), saying, "It should not have happened."

Fassbender, who was infuriated by the response of the Parks Division, is satisfied with this: "All I wanted from the very beginning was an apology, a heartfelt sorry."
