Of course...that doesn't mean we can't celebrate twice!
Since I never did post more pictures from the civil union, I thought I'd do so now. As I was choosing these pictures, I found myself thinking about some of the really huge strides that have been made even in the year since we had this ceremony. I have to admit I never thought I'd see such progress in my lifetime. So I have to say how grateful I am to the 'soldiers': the people who risked and dared and stood up for justice and gave our community a voice over the years. These pictures and joy would not exist without them. So thank you! In a small way we gave back with this ceremony, as instead of gifts we asked guests to donate to It Gets Better.
And for any young people out there who are struggling with prejudice and ignorance. It gets better!
|Forget flower girls. We had the Bubble Girlz!|
|Those who stood up for us danced down the aisle to Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"|
|Here come the grooms!|
|When the ceremony began, I admit I was blown away at what was happening!|
|And while cake is always good...|
|...the best part was having our friends and family there!|
|It gets better!|
