Wedding: Arley-Rose & Morgan

I have been not-so-patiently waiting to share the wedding of Arley-Rose and Morgan, the talent behind Ladyfingers Letterpress. Their wedding was a collaboration of friends and family that took place on Seven Arrows Farm in Massachusetts. Neon invitations, jeans, singing, tears of joy; how can you not be inspired by their lesbian love story.

She traveled with our family and friends to the farm while I drove with my mom and sisters in my mom’s car. Traditions? What traditions? We were all about creating new ones that day.

We walked with our families down the aisle in threes, led by our flower girl, Louise (the daughter of our good friends Shawn and Jill), followed by my cousin and ring-bearer Nick and my two sisters, then Morgans two brothers and sister. I walked down with my mom and dad on each arm, and Morgan followed with her two parents. 

Hand in hand, Morgan and I floated on some kind of cloud as we stood in front of 130 of our closest and dearest family and friends. Alyn’s words were amazing and we held back tears as we looked into each others eyes and sent secret brain messages to each other “We are so lucky!” I could hear her think! I wonder if she could hear my thinking about the delicious dinner we were about to eat. Hmm. Anyway, Alyn shared her wisdom about creating “a cozy spot” – that middle space of shared sanctuary in a venn diagram of individualism where she urged us to never lose sight of ourselves as independents, but never stray too far from that cozy spot where we become more than individuals. She quoted the United Nations when they declared that “Marriage is a human right” and stirred up our inner activists as she quoted Sir William Robert Ferdinand Mount when he said “Marriage is a subversive act against authority.” At some parts of the reception I had forgotten that what we were doing was even illegal in some states, but quotes like that brought me back to the reality – and importance – of what we were doing.

I performed two songs, the first was a cover of “Be My Baby” by the Ronettes and the second song was a song I wrote for Morgan a few years ago called Balloon Heart.

Can’t you practically hear her singing just looking at that picture? Well, if you actually want to hear her sing and for more wedding details, check out their wedding blog.
