Favorite thing about the wedding: We had all of our guests walk down in a single line to meet us for the start of the ceremony to create a circle with us. That was hands down our most favorite moment. We were overwhelmed. We cried. We couldn’t get it together and had to stumble through the beginning of the ceremony as we continued to cry. That is what made it awesome. Not our flowers or our clothes or our decorations or the location. We didn’t have a dance floor, we didn’t have a reception, we didn’t wear veils, we didn’t carry flowers, we didn’t do a toast, we didn’t have a honeymoon, we didn’t have a bridal party, and we didn’t have a marriage license. But we had a wedding. We made a commitment to each other that did matter. We asked each of our guests to celebrate, acknowledge and bless our marriage at a time when our government does not. That moment was so empowering and so full of joy.

Other cool stuff we should know about: We were married on both Cinco de Mayo and Vesak (celebration of Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and death) with the Supermoon that night. Seeing that moon come up over the lake on our wedding night was ridiculous and so full of good energy. The weekend was pure magic.
