eeeeee, ok ok ok. Um, I’ve been thinking about it all a lot lately! idk what you want to know so I’ll just ramble. Um, it’ll be at the very place where I proposed to my baby, in an old pasture, overlooking the sea. We will have a small binding ceremony with light refreshments to follow (meaning: fruit plate, veggie plate, meat & cheese plate, gluten-free finger sandwiches, gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, and lemonade). Aryn and I will be brooms: that is, both brides and grooms. We will have no bridesmaids or groomsmen, just us, and we haven’t the slightest clue who will officiate. It will be a handfasting ceremony with heartfelt vows and nothing religious but very spiritual, seeing as ours is a very spiritual connection and we are both fond of many traditions. Gus will be there, romping around. My uncle and my future mother-in-law will be our photographers— I like the idea of different people having different roles. It will be about 50-100 people, just family and friends. Oh and we’re going to look dapper as fuck. We don’t know exactly what we’ll wear yet, but it’ll be some classy combination of lace and denim and leather and cowboy boots. And I’m pretty sure I’ll be making Gus a denim bow-tie. I might have some flowers, hopefully dahlias or lilacs, but I also want to just put a couple cacti and succulents around, ones that we will later have in our home.
I couldn’t be more thrilled to be planning a very non-wedding marriage ceremony, to feel the stress and expenses slide away as we plan it all, and to marry the absolute love of my life. I can’t believe that in 9 months, this person will be my spouse… or, as I like to say it, my wusband and hife. I can’t wait to do life together with them, even more than we’re already doing it.
Thank you so much for asking!!! <3 <3 <3
