I met Randy in the theatre. We were doing a wonderful wonderful play called “The Little Dog Laughed”.
That’s me, tugging on Randy’s tie. We became fast friends.
Later he would introduce me to the CUTE man he was dating. It would take me awhile to realize that I KNEW this man!!! We had grown up in the same church in Mt. Pleasant. His mother had taught me 4 year old kindergarten! What a small world.
When they asked me to photograph their wedding I could not be more excited and honored to do this for them and to see them happily married.
Randy said it best later that day in his toast to the crowd. He never thought he would ever see a day like this for himself and to have all his family and friends around him overwhelmed him with joy.
I believe in love. I believe that and two adults should be able to celebrate that love in the bonds of marriage. Gay or straight.
I hear people say that gay marriage threatens the sanctity of “traditional” marriage. Well, I for one, found my own love of my own hunky man strengthened watching these two lovely people vow to care for one another for their lives ahead. New love always has a way of reminding me of the vows I took and how much I still care about them today. MY life is better knowing these two can openly love each other… or any two for that matter.
All you need is love.
