Almost six years ago David and I tied the knot in a big church ceremony in Kansas with both of our families. We did the whole “in the eyes of God, friends, and family” bit but not the legal part because we were both involved with the marriage equality movement and didn’t feel comfortable taking advantage of rights that weren’t available to everyone. And while it was a really beautiful ceremony, honestly, the whole day was just massive stressful with all the family and parents and what-have-you.
But now we’re moving to Oregon where that’s not an issue so we figured, fuck it, let’s do the damn thing! So tonight… tonight I had the wedding of my dreams.
A group of our closest friends, on the roof of Gallo Blanco with the city skyline in the background, plenty of tacos and pitches full of margaritas to go around.
We’d called a friend ahead of time and asked her to get ordained online, she focused on the Dr. Seuss quote “We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.” which was absolutely perfect. Everything was absolutely perfect.
So all of you go take a shot to celebrate with us! Yes, I mean right now. Go get it right now. Because tonight is all about love.
