Whirlwind Wedding: Nuptial Knots in New York City

It was a whirlwind wedding last week–tieing our lose US ends in New York knots–nuptial knots, that is.

Yes, Sara and I are married!

Thanks to Lame Adeventures for this almost-wedding-kiss shot!

Unfortunately, our departure for Ecuador in less than 24 hours prevents me from writing more at the moment.  However, you can read about our great day on the blog of one witness–Manhattan resident and one of the best comic bloggers I know, Lame Adventures herself.

Below is the beginning of her post.  Please read and click over to her blog for the rest of the story and wedding photos, as well.

Later this week or next, our other blogger witness and dear friend  from the Big Apple, Jackie Cangro, will also be writing about the event.  I will share the link with you when it’s posted.

In the meantime, we are off to Ecuador, with two dogs and 10 suitcases, in less than 24 hours.  I’ll share more next week.

When I launched Lame Adventures in January 2010, I saw my site as an outlet for sharing tales set in New York City from the perspective of a hapless minion of modest means. At first, it was fine with me if only my close circle of friends and my sister, Dovima, read my blog. I am by nature an anti-social networker. Eventually, bloggers began to discover me, and I realized that was okay, too. I now enjoy reading several fellow bloggers and I have gotten to know members of my cyberspace posse quite well. On more than one occasion I have even been fortunate enough to meet fellow bloggers when they’ve visited New York City.

The most rewarding experience I’ve had thus far with meeting a fellow blogger occurred last Thursday when I met one of my earliest followers, Kathy McCullough over at Reinventing the Event Horizon. Instead of doing the usual, hanging out at a pub, Kathy emailed me and asked if I would serve as witness to the City Hall nuptials between she and Sara Coppler, her partner of seven years. On May 1, they would move to Cuenca, Ecuador. That was an offer I couldn’t refuse. My co-witness, Jackie over at Jackie Cangro, was on board to attend, too. I have since learned that Jackie is both an excellent sherpa and writer.

Please forgive my STILL not having responded to your lovely comments from last week’s post.  I’ve simply been too crazy-busy, what with the minor details of marriage and moving.  I promise to resume better blogging etiquette upon arrival in Ecuador.
