My Big Gay Asian Wedding!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

On June 4th 2011 We got hitched :) The wedding was absolutely beautiful and I couldn't be happier. The Asian theme came out beautifully. For favors we had Double Happiness chrome wine toppers and Chinese take out boxes filled with M&M's that had our theme colors, faces and names on them. Our colors were red, white and black.I do have to admit that I wasn't very happy with my makeup. My makeup artist went a little over board and my hair stylist was too rushed. Yet overall I was completely happy. If it wasn't for my mother-in-law I don't know how we could have pulled it off considering we live 2 states away! I love you Sherri! I think for a same-sex wedding we did pretty well. We live in Vermont where gay marriage is legal, but had our wedding on the Jersey Shore with all of Jes's family and friends. My brother Scott flew in from Germany and we had a few of our closest friends from Vermont there. I wore red in my dress to go with the Asian theme (I'm half Asian so I thought it fit) and we had a Buddhist inspired ceremony that was beautiful. (My wife and I are both Buddhist) Our wedding was at Latitudes on the River in Forked River, NJ on the Jersey shore and I would recommend it for anyone!
