Who gets married in a comic shop? The Lethbian Lovers do, that’s who.
A wedding ceremony is a must-have, legally binding agreement, and you can’t just walk up to city hall to get married. So we chose to have ours in the presence of the God of Thunder, adventurers, heroes, and our closest family and friends.
Our dream of an exotic elopement is still happening (don’t tell anyone), though it doesn’t mean we couldn’t have fun with what could have otherwise been a non-event to take care of some paperwork.
Speaking of paper, look at the awesome bouquet our friends helped us make out of comic books!
We got married after-hours in Kapow, and purposefully kept it simple and small. Wallie and Kallie opened their shop for us, and her mother Barb performed the ceremony while everyone looked on.
The ceremony was as nerdy as you can get, describing our love spanning Middle Earth, multiple dimensions, a zombie apocalypse and the singularity. We topped off the occasion with some bubbly, and our first (unplanned) dance as husband and wife:
Yes, we danced to Ocean Man.
Afterwards, we walked down the street in Downtown Lethbridge to the Telegraph Tap House to enjoy some deep fried pickles and craft beer. Nothing like finishing up a good adventure in a tavern.
Special thanks to Mia for capturing the event on camera and creating an amazing photobook!
“We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
