Thanks!I just read your whole wedding TR a couple weeks ago. Last night I had to run in to the verizon store to pick up some stuff for DH and the man at the register was wearing a wedding band with the Superman logo etched on it all around the band. I couldn't help but think of you! Loved reading your story, by the way!
Hey there! Welcome to the DIS and the GLBT forum!Just wanted to let you know that your TR has been helpful. My partner and I are having our ceremony May 2011. Your post helped us to decide on Randy as our photographer and provide other inspiration. From reading your report is sounds like your wedding was a blast. Thank you.
Well, I just got a facebook message. Katie proposed to my cousin Kelly in Hawaii over the weekend. The whole family is VERY happy!After we'd begun eating, my Uncle Barry arrived with his lady friend, Maureen, and my cousin Kelly. This ended up being a very good weekend for Barry and Kelly. My uncle had been having difficulties with his daughter for the past few years since she's come out of the closet as a lesbian. Being around us, and seeing Uncle Kevin and his partner talking about being together 27 years really helped Barry to reconnect with Kelly a little bit. Especially since she started telling us about her girlfriend Katie and how happy she is to have met her (they've been dating for 6 months). Barry hasn't met her yet, but is now going to do so.
Indulge me for a moment, please.I like this one better:
She was quite a lady, to be sure. And at only 65, we weren't expecting this at all.Oh Rob....
Do us all a favor, have a few Bourbons, and tell some great stories about your mom with your friends and family! She looks like she was quite a gal!
Mike, this tells a better story than I ever could. This is the Mom, I had. This is how I remember her. This is who I will carry with me in my heart.Yes, The Big Fat Gay Disney Wedding was just what it was supposed to be, and it was indeed Magical. It was also a lot of fun!!
From the minute we arrived on September 24 to the time we left on on October 6, there was just one happy moment after another. The reason for this was love: Rob and Scott's obvious love for one another, and we, as a family, who love them.
I have so many wonderful memories of that weekend, especially after going through all the photos to choose the ones I want in our album. How could I choose only a few? Finally, I chose the ones of Rob and Scott that showed, on their faces, their love. Also, I chose the ones that showed all of the family having such a good time.
I have spoken to every one of the family members since then, and they all express their gratitude to Rob and Scott for sharing their happiness by throwing this shindig. It was a unifying event for a family that was already close.
Personally, I keep seeing those two beaming, smiling faces. It gives me the most pleasure to know that their smiles and obvious love for one another was not a show for that one day, but that it is their normal state of happiness. As parents, we pray for the day when each of our children finds that one person with whom they want to spend the rest of their lives. For Rob, it is Scott. From the first day they met. And as for me, I knew that Scott loved him too, because I saw it on his face in the first picture I ever saw of him. You see, Rob was taking the picture, and Scott was looking at him. The BFGDW was the celebration of that Fairy Tale come true.
I am so proud of my two sons, Rob and Scott, because they have the courage to celebrate their love and unintentionally serve as an example to both gay and straight couples of what love looks like. Obviously, I love them both very much, and I look forward to many more happy moments with them.
Thank you, Rob, for this wonderful journal of the planning and of the event itself. If you print it, I surely do want a copy. Thank you both for letting me share in that planning and celebration. I love you both.
