i love the story of this wedding! how beautiful. this is a great website and i plan to visit it much, as i plan my own ethical wedding.

i have a technical question for you... i am ordained online, too, and have been asked to officiate at the wedding of friends way out on long island. i live in PA, where it is easy to do these marriages b/c of the quaker marriage license... but i am concerned about the legality of this marriage. do you have any idea of what the NY laws are about or how to make sure this is "legit?" just curious... thanks for any info you can provide.


Hi Kate,

You don't know me, but I stumbled upon your blog as my boyfriend and I started to plan our own ethical wedding out here in Berkeley, CA.

I just wanted to drop a line to let you know that much of what you are writing resonates with us. We, too, deliberated about getting married at all (given the many gay couples we know who are struggling to gain that right). And, we, too, are working hard to make sure that our wedding ceremony and reception is in line with our values -- that is how we want to begin our journey as a married couple. It's not always easy and seeing these photos of your friends' wedding is a good reminder of what really matters.

Good luck with your planning. I'll keep reading to see how you two are doing with this effort.

Such a sweet story, I have kept track of you since my contest. How is your planning going? Select a photographer yet? I still have your date open :)

Keep it up (pleasepleaseplease)

Wow. I got misty-eyed with this one. What a lovely, love-filled, love story... and what a beautiful little wedding. I hope, if I ever get married, mine will be just like that.
In other news, you have to let The World know how the planning is going! And: Hi Jeremy!


wow what a cute wedding. I want to have mine look like yours! I'm planning things out and I already some beautiful jewelry on http://www.idonowidont.com/newsite.php for me to wear down the isle, or maybe on a cute rooftop idea like yours!


Love the candles!


Really cute and awesome wedding. I do planning to have a wedding like that. I think my boyfriend is going to like the idea too.


I love this story. It warms my little heart.

Hey Your both are looking very cute. I wish you will always remain happy like this. While reading your post I remembered the time of my wedding. It was really golden days of life..


Absolutely beautiful. It is great to hear such a wonderful success story for a couple that focused on the important things and everything else fell into place for them. And in two weeks.

This is the true meaning of LOVE. Anyone who puts all else aside and plans a "spur-of-the-moment" wedding without all the bells and whistles must be in love. Very charming.
