We marrieds!

We went to the alameda county clerks' office this past friday and tied the (legal) knot!
There were two homo couples in line ahead of us, and the energy was high and festive!
(until we had to sit there for an hour waiting for our judge to marry us!)

We got married by the "marriage commissioner" who happened to be a lady with a judges' robe and motorcycle boots! (in the club, perhaps?) It did seem unusual and sweet that after performing our ceremony, she asked to take a picture of us. We are making history, folks!

My coworker Ann made us an amazing cake and bought us the most beautiful bouquets. A most unexpected surprise! It just made our ceremony so special.

We honeymooned in Gurneville, CA by the russian river. The weather was iffy, so we spent some time in the redwoods at Armstrong Woods. An amazing place, 3 miles outside of gurneville.

This is me and Colonel Armstrong, a 1400 year old tree.

This is the place on the river where we got our own little funky cabin, complete with private deck and kitchen!
