We’ve Done Did It!

What an amazing and unexpected experience.

 

To our fuchsia Bridesmaids, the entire Reno Housewives crew; Lauren; The Popcorn Palace for catering!; our attendants, and attendees:

Thank you! for sharing some very special and memorable moments with us. Lauren, as ever, you are superlative and I am so grateful to you for honoring us both by officiating our ceremony. You all are truly in our hearts for standing witness to our love and union of commitment – That’s the amazing part, and we both feel so honored by your support and love.

The unexpected aspect came from the new awareness that each of us now has of being married. We’ve been together for 7 years now, and we each didn’t expect that this type of ceremonious declaration would have much impact, but it has to a degree! The best way that I know to describe, is that there seems to be some unseen tendril of new intimacy that deepens the everyday connections. Like a quiet awareness. At least, that is how it feels to me anyway, and I’m sure Tink has his own take it, but there definitely is a subtle difference.

What a remarkable day! Preps were low-drama, but of course last-minute playa-time being what it is, we arrived at the appointed spot after our guests and loved-ones. One of the multitudes of items I had neglected to print off before leaving town was our ceremony and vows, which Lauren had conscientiously sent to me for edits, so I had to handwrite transcribe them from my laptop so she could officiate. Lauren, extra big kudos for schlogging through my handwriting!

Afterwards, our lovely bridesmaids crew through us a great reception soirée back at our camp featuring amazing friends; Paella, and Champagne, and lovely hugs.

Tink and I had a wonderful day! Made even more special because of each of you. Blessings to you all of you come from a very special place in our hearts.

Next up! We are off to be legally married in Washington DC later this month [Yikes, just in a couple of weeks!]. We’ve engaged with Tiffany Newman to officiate for us while we’re there, NOT that it will be recognized here in Nevada anytime soon, but hey, look how far equality has come thus far! Every raindrop feeds the ocean, right?

Our friends have been sending more photos, so as they come in, I will add them to an album I’ll host somewhere. More than likely, I’ll post a link in the side-column for easy access. They’re great, as they keep the remembrances of these very special days ongoing.

Love and Blessings!!

From Mr & Mr Two Old Fairies
