Just when I thought I couldn’t have had more fun at my own wedding there was a CHEER! A CHEER I TELL YOU! It made me feel like I was in my own booty-shake Dr. Seuss world!*

Ready? OK!

M-A-RR-I-E-D!
M-A-RR-I-E-D!

Like Doctors and Companions
Like Captain and Tennille
Like peanut-peanut butter
Their true love is for real!

They’ve made a home together
Turtle, dog and cat
We’re here to say this special day
Hooray for Jim and Pat!

We followed the cheer the only way we knew how, by welcoming our guests to our wedding with a bit of Polari*, a form of slang used in gay subculture at a time when it was illegal in the UK. It wasn’t that long ago, gay marriage is very new and queer people are still persecuted. We have a long way to go, this is only the beginning, you can make the difference.

* Band uniforms are tough to shake your booty in, they’re kind of confining. 

* A bit of a Polari dictionary to translate what Pat said.

A month ago today Pat (raisethebar) and I got married. It was wonderful. Friends helped arrange for Mucca Pazza to be part of the festivities and it was delightful.

We had a prom committee, a shenanigans committee and an awesome clean up committee as well as the best guests ever. Of course there were even more people we would have liked to be there so hopefully we can share the love by sharing the videos and photos people took of the occasion.

Thanks to Jeff for taking this video. I’ll post a few more throughout the day! Thanks to Joe for making our outfits fantastic. I wasn’t about to get married in boring men’s formal wear. Have you seen it? You wouldn’t know if we were going to a wedding or a funeral. Throw in the limited selection for big and tall and it gets worse. We wanted this to be a celebration!
