“Fate.” It was meant to be.
Well, here we are 20 years later & on 9/2/12 we married at the Water Club in front of 100 family members & friends and the world. The ceremony was videotaped by Nippon TV as part of a same sex wedding TV special.
This was a dream come true. We were Domestic Partners but we wanted more. We wanted the same recognition that is given to every “straight” couple! And finally we were able to say “I Do” in front of the whole world. We were accepted by New York!
Now, if every state would follow this example, that would be something. And of course we still impatiently await acceptance Federally.
We are so proud to be married. We are productive members of society. Adrian is an artist and a fashion illustration teacher in a NYC high school. I am a retired high school teacher (31 years) & now I am a licensed NYS wedding officiant joining amazing couples in matrimony.
Love & marriage is amazing! It should be recognized everywhere. Everyone deserves happiness & acceptance from everyone!
So, thank you, New York, thank you to our family & friends who have traveled to join us as we “legally” joined hands & said “I do!”
Our ceremony was the “Heart of our Wedding” as it told our love story with pride & happiness! We wish the same for every same sex couple.
