my life Wedding Bells

Our New York City Hall Wedding


I promised to share a few photos from our recent nuptials, and here they are. Our families met us at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau on Friday morning and we were in and out in under an hour. It was so moving to watch all the other nervous, excited couples wait their turn—gay, straight, young, old, American, and foreign. The whole experience was lovely, simple, and fun. Of course, I still managed to cry even though the ceremony lasted all of five minutes. As we walked out, other couples offered congratulations and my heart swelled–so much love and kindness in the air. Thank you, Simon Wolfe Taylor, for always making me laugh, teaching me big nerdy words, and taking me to be your wife. xo
