Marriage Equality is a big deal. A really big deal. Our brides Sara and Jill couldn’t agree more, and this fall they finally made legal in Washington state what they’d already done in Canada in 2007. They invited their family and friends to celebrate with them as they tied the knot stateside in a more or less traditional Jewish ceremony. Both ceremony and reception featured lots of mementos from their Canadian nuptials, including their Ketubah, the original Rabbi, and an approximately 7 foot tall custom carved totem that the guests at the first wedding actually helped create (of course an artisan finished the job!). There were cheers of jubilation when the Rabbi made a point of emphasizing that they were within full accordance with the laws of Washington state, and I’ll even admit it made me cry. What a beautiful love story, and we were so happy to be the ones there to document it all!
