Yesterday, MeFi's Own chrismear and greenish got married! Huzzah! Shadchen Jessamyn officiated. Songs were sung. The minister's RV was pushed out of the moor, if you catch my drift.

Mazel tov you kids! It was an honor to be such a part of your special day (and indeed your meeting in the first place). I'm still traveling so don't have the ceremony online yet but chrismeaqr and greenish guys met at a MeFi meetup. Also in attendance at the wedding were terrapin and turtlegirl, terrific helpers and all around great people to have assisting out at your special event. The song Jim linked is the song that we sang acapella out on the moors with the entire wedding party. Every happiness. Cheers!

Mazel tov!!!! Such wonderful news! A moorish RV sounds wonderful.



(I almost wish I wasn't married so Jessamyn could marry me. To Jeff Goldblum. Joking!)



Marriage is a wonderful privilege. So pleased you found your person. Both of you.
HURRAH!

Congratulations! From a married-22-years-person, marriage ROCKS. Make a conscious decision every day, both of you, to be married to each other in the best possible way. Be kind, fill the car up with gas, make each other tea/coffee, and laugh. A lot.

Best wishes to you!

Wait so this was really on the moors, the moors? Somehow I was thinking it was a place in Vermont that's locally nicknamed "the moors" but now you're telling me this was, like, a pedigreed for-real moor, the kind that gives you a romantic fever? Nice.

Reader, I married him!! 😍

This thread is so lovely, thanks for all the good wishes. We are just the happiest and have been smiling more or less non-stop since Sunday morning.

We hoped with all our little hearts to do the ceremony on Dartmoor as its so beautiful and special to us, but it rained all morning. We arrived thinking we'd have to send everyone back to the reception shelter, and also wondering if some folk might have decided to stay home, but as we walked up the hill together we saw all our beloved people, gamely holding umbrellas and grinning, and the rain stopped right as we got there. Jessamyn's beautiful ceremony was perfect, and as a final touch, the sun peeped through just as we all sang 'God Only Knows' - acapella as we forgot to bring the guitar! Perhaps appropriate, for two folk who got to know each other chatting about leading their respective choirs.

After that it was homebrewed beer and wine, the most finely-tuned Spotify playlists I've ever crafted, and a lot of laughing and dancing. And Lucidium winning the prize for best speech.

The Internet got a few shout-outs in our speeches and the ceremony. Thanks to you guys and this lovely community, we met each other, we had a wonderful wedding, and we had some excellent company for the day, not to mention the 'setting up' beforehand. We love you guys.

The same. The wiley, windy moors. The moors you're supposed to keep off of.

Congratulations, guys, and may your future be free of both lycanthropy and tyrannical 19th century anti-heroes!

Here's the ceremony if people would like to read it.

The moors you're supposed to keep off of.

Everything I knew about the moors before this week was from creepy Steeleye Span songs.

It was a beautiful ceremony for two people who really do compliment each other. Jessamyn aced it. I cried, and laughed. We were honoured to be included, and enjoyed being able to help.
