Lynn and I had our big "wedding" ceremony back in 2008-- we invited a boatload of people, pitched a giant circus tent, ate a lot of food, spent an enormous amount of money and had a grand ol' time. Marriage equality arrived in Washington State in Dec 2012, and we decided we would get married "for reals" on our anniversary date in Aug. But smaller this time, and much cheaper. Just close family this time, over lunch-- and our good friend Ken was our officiant once again. And voila... we are now wife and wife! Huzzah! I never thought it would happen in my lifetime. Pretty darned cool.
