September 6, 2014 - My Wedding
It’s been almost a year of planning and the event moved from Chicago to Houston and so many crazy things happened, but we got hitched!
S and i spent a week at my family’s “ranch” in a tiny town outside of Houston prepping in the 90 degree weather for our weekend wedding. It was such hard work - but the results were stunning. My parent’s backyard was transformed into a wonderland.
I originally purchased a dress from Alfred Angelo, but decided it was too much for the backyard affair and I ended up buying this dress which I used for our Queer Femme Wedding photoshoot this spring from ModCloth. I just adore this dress - the subtle tone, the light fabric, the sparkles. It set off nicely against S’s navy windowpane suit from topman.
“Instructions For Life In The New Millennium by the 14th Dalai Lama”
Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
And that a loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.
Be gentle with the earth, be gentle with one another.
When disagreements come remember always to protect the spirit of your union.
When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other.
So love yourselves, love one another, love all that is your life together and all else will follow.
For the afterparty at our favorite goth(ish) club Numbers, I wore another modcloth dress - this one in white with a Zana Bayne harness and a black veil.
It was a perfect day - one I will never forget. And now I’m recuperating back at home - trying to catch up on sleep and just feel rested. We aren’t taking our honeymoon until February, so for now it’s just looking forward to that.
