Big, Big, BIG News

denvention
So… back in 1981, Parris left Portland, Oregon for Santa Fe, and moved in with me in my old house on Declovina Street. We’ve been together ever since, for good times and bad, a move or two, more cons and road trips and adventures than either of us can remember now in our advanced old age.

After thirty years, we finally decided that maybe this relationship was going to work out after all.

So on the evening of February 15, we finally made it official, and married in front of our hearth at our home here in Santa Fe. The hearth is Lannister red, but the bride wore Tyrell colors. Unlike most Westerosi weddings, no one was killed and only tears of joy were shed.

(I can hear some of you saying ‘What took you so long?’ What can I say? I’m slow. With writing and with… ah… other things. )



Parris and I have been very very lucky. In each other, in our friends, and in the prosperity we’ve enjoyed over the past few years. There’s very little we need in the way of gifts, flowers, etc. So if you would like to give us a wedding gift, please consider making a donation to the one of these charities. They all do good work, and have more need of your largesse than we do.

A small (very small, our living room is not that big) group of friends and loved ones bore witness to the nuptials, and joined us afterwards for a celebratory feast.




Here’s a few more pix from the event.





IN BRIGHTEST DAY, IN BLACKEST NIGHT?

(We respectfully ask those who would like to spread this news to link back
to our LJs and photos rather than lifting the text and pix and using them elsewhere).

We are so happy to share the news with all our friends, old and new, the friends we have yet to meet, and with all of my (George’s) readers. And now we’ve off for a six-month Honeymoon trip around the world. See you when we get back.



(no, no, no, just kidding. GRRM will be honeymooning on Skull Island, I promise)

because so many have asked, please excuse me jumping the thread in such a rude manner
Our rings were made by a local company. They have very talented designers, use only recycled precious metals and source their gems as fair-trade as possible. They made ours in less than two weeks, bless them! I can truly recommend the company to anyone in search of fine jewelry with that Celtic touch. http://www.celticjewelry.com/,

It doesn't show up well in the photos, but the turquoise necklace I am wearing was my Yule gift from George, made by Wings, a gifted jeweler from Taos, you can see a similar piece by going to his website, choosing the gallery of necklaces and look at the 'royal blue turtle necklace'. His wife, Aji, is a photographer, so do take the time to see her pictures of northern New Mexico. They are some of the finest I've seen of our beloved New Mexico.

and thanks for all the kind remarks about my garb, it was assembled from several sources, since there was no time to sew up a proper leine and dress myself.

Now, all go drink a toast to us all, and thank you so much.
