Sarah and Ian are outrageously fun, sardonic, dry, brilliant, and irreverent, and their colorful, non-traditional backyard wedding completely reflected their personalities. Even the rain and chill in the air couldn’t compete with the rowdy joy and silliness of the day. Everywhere I turned, people were laughing, hugging, dancing, and having a great time.
In addition to the high spirit of the day, though, Sarah and Ian managed to create a tender atmosphere for their ceremony, which included music played by Ian’s dad, heartfelt speeches by loved ones, and one of the sweetest ring-passing ceremonies I’ve ever witnessed. It was moving. And when they moved outside, the drizzling rain didn’t stop the love. Truly–this couple is adored by their community, and it was such a pleasure to bear witness to it.
The right people always seem to find me, and they were no exception. Impressions from this magical, very DIY celebration: ring warming. Homemade silk dress. Donuts. Home-brewed beer. Musicians. Non-traditional queer excellence. Special handshakes. Wildflowers, rainbow umbrellas, homemade dresses, and dancing in the rain. (Did I mention Sarah’s BFF MADE her wedding dress? It was silk and completely hand-designed. Somehow we managed not to ruin it in the rain!) Thanks, guys, for having me–what a joyous, raucous day this was.
