We're heading to Tahoe on Friday to visit my best friend and have a vacation and we're going to legally get married while we're out there!  We have an appointment for a civil ceremony on Monday, July 28th at 2:30!  It won't mean a thing when we get back here to PA, but just being able to do it is exciting.  I'll have a marriage license!  I'll share pics:)

Congratulations Jessie! It might not mean a thing legally in PA now, but it could eventually. NY is now recognizing out of state same-sex weddings. Have fun!

Thanks everyone!  We were getting in bed last night and Greta said, "What are you going to wear for our wedding?"  And I had no clue!  Neither of us have really thought about it.  I think we'll just wear something that we already have since we bought the fancier outfits for our ceremony last year.

Hi everyone!

It went SUPER well and now we officially have a marriage license!  When looking at it, a straight couple remarked, "It looks just like ours!"  And it does, except that now it says 'Applicant A' and 'Applicant B'.  My friend scanned it for us so I have an online copy too.  I love looking at it.  And everyone in the county clerks office was great.  I'm uploading pics today and will be sure to post some:)

 

Thanks for all the support and good wishes!  The weather was perfect, too:)

Derek says that you should have waited until the 27th though....then you could have shared his birthday!  ;)

Congratulations on making it official, Jessie!  Stinks that it couldn't be "official" the first time, but look at it this way...you got a second honeymoon!
