Gay Married


The obligatory engagement shots... taken in our office.
Then we got Gay Married...

The joyous event took place during Sara's break. We took the elevator to the third floor notary in my building, signed our papers, wrote out the check, stamped the envelope, took a picture in front of the giant plastic ear in my office and sent it out with the 10am mail! The picture of efficiency!

And when our little blue cards came in the mail, we immediately licked them, stuck them to our foreheads and proceeded to ham it up for our own amusement.

Me and the old ball n' chain.

Indulging in cake smashing privileges of recently married couples...

...which Sara found hilarious!

This was Step Two in what will be a three step process. Step One was to pay the big bucks to get all of our legalese done, Wills, Power of attorney and Medical Directives (protections at the Federal level). Step Two - State recognition and Step Three? Step Three is the party/celebration...the plans are in the works.

It promises to be a good time...we DO know how to throw a party!

SO happy! You guys really are meant for each other. You know, not everyone ends up with someone they are so compatible with - you are truly lucky to have found each other. (Sorry for the sappiness - but weddings bring that out in people, you know) : )

Awww! Congrats on your gay marriage!! The wedding cake shots are classic - you'll cherish those for years to come. Huzzah!

SW & roro - Those aren't professional wedding photos...I know its hard to tell. We took those ourselves! Maybe we should start a business...Kitchen Gay Marriage photos, three shots, no clean-up!

MaySoeur - Sappiness noted and appreciated!

Congrats, ladies! You are so sneeky with all that talk about getting married being far off. Way to bite the bullet. Looks like your day was super special. Congrats on the membership cards. GO GAY!

Congratulations! Hey, did you change your Facebook statuses? You should probably add that into your steps of marriage, though posting the news on your blog might be an acceptable alternative . . . I'm just not sure.

Amanda said...

Yeah, I don't think it's official until Facebook says so :)

Congratulations on becoming domestically partnered! That's fabulous.
