A wedding has basically two parts. One is for the legal side, with government papers, health insurance, name changes, etc. The other is a celebration of the event, a party to introduce the new couple to friends and family as husband and wife.
Our problem is that, being heavy into social media, our friends are scattered across the nation. We decided that the best way to have a wedding that included our various friends and family was to have it around Balticon, when most of them are coming out here anyway.
So we decided to do the two parts at two different times. The first part was a small ceremony, with just a few close friends. That, we did Monday, June 4th, 2012.
We exchanged vows and rings. We made lifetime promises and kissed to seal it. I could not be happier.
Next year, sometime over Memorial Day weekend, we will have a celebration and share our news with our friends. If you can read this, you are invited.
More details will come. I hope to see you there.
