A Gleeful Wedding

Well, here's some news. I ran off and got married today. Yep, I did.

Recently my partner of 7 years and I decided we were going to get married. Neither of us wanted a big to-do or a long engagement, so we called up a local officiant, had her meet us at the county courthouse, and we were married around 9:00 this morning.

I just thought you all should know that Glee was, indeed, a part of our day. I joked that, unlike Ken Tanaka, my man does not have 74 flaws as of yesterday. He joked that he thought about presenting me with a cubic zirconia because he knew how affected I was by Blood Diamond.

Without going into (somewhat embarrassing) detail, I'll share with you all that we met 7 years ago because of a television show, and I'm happy to say not much has changed. I'm fairly certain that our "honeymoon" will have something to do with a trip to New York City in May to see the Glee cast perform at Radio City Music Hall, and I wouldn't be surprised to open a box and find "a sweater that makes me look homeschooled."

This post doesn't have much to do with Emma's fashion, but I wanted to share a little bit about myself with all of you, who have made this blog so much fun for me. As much as I love this dress:



I wouldn't trade my little surprise wedding with this one



for the world.

We're vegans for crying out loud! :)

Awww, you and your new husband sound absolutely lovely. And I was going to say congratulations but after checking with the etiquette guide that is Emily Gilmore I find that it is not actually the appropriate response. So instead, Best Wishes. :)

Awww, I eloped in November. Went to a local officiant in Arlington in a J. Crew dress and shoes. Wouldn't have changed it for the world. Best wishes to you both!

Danielle said...

WOW! I am OVERWHELMED by all these sweet responses! A million bajillion thanks.

As if my day wasn't great enough, you all made it even better. I'm really and truly touched by this outpouring of kindness.

People keep asking me what I wore to get married, so here's a picture of the dress!

A Gleeful Wedding Dress

Many, MANY thanks to everyone here. You are THE BEST.

Danielle said...

...OH! I wore the dress with a little pink shrug... :)

Your wedding dress is precious and you must have looked so pretty! Congratulations ... I'm really happy for you!!! I got married 7 years after I met my husband too, we basically eloped with our immediate families. A lifetime of love and joy to you and your DH =)
