As it turns out, when you first meet in a giant all-night rain storm and snuggle on a couch under a circus tent to stay warm while chatting with art festival goers for hours, marriage might end up happening sooner rather than later... especially when love-at-first-sight-life-experience-creative-sensibility has a strong hand to play in boosting your connection!
Well, that's what happened in our case, anyway, lol. Then, after a few months of talking about dates and places and times for a wedding ceremony, it might just work out that the bug to get married hits you one afternoon while at the library after he had picked up the form the day previously. At that point, you bike to the DMV to fill out paperwork, where magically your roommate has brought a suit coat, your social security card, and a camera, and his friend, along with the friend's dad, happens to bring a guitar to serenade the ceremony. But after you fill out the paperwork at near closing time Wedding Wednesday afternoon, you have to go up and find a judge to officiate the ceremony in a building that is a maze. So, you go through security and find a judge in the elevator who happens to have a prior engagement but takes you right to the 18th floor with the locked room full of judges where one judge comes out to say that you have to have money for the ceremony. Well, of course it takes four out of five people to come up with cash for the ceremony, and after Mrs. Judge dons the black robe of official-ness, we all proceed to the skyway where the City Hall remains in the background for the duration of the ceremony held with three witnesses and that's a wrap, lol. Well, then you go over to City Hall to take just a few photos because apparently that is what you do when you get married Downtown as a first ceremony. Yep, this is our first Wedding Story.
