Big, Big, BIG News

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)

Congratulations George and Paris!
I had always assumed you folks were married this whole time by the way you wrote about her. All the best!

Congratulations!!
I just figured, being the fan that I am, that I should send my best wishes to one of my favorite authors on hearing the good news of your marriage. I applaud your choice of waiting until you were sure the time was right. It's good not to rush into these things. Since I was born in 81, I can understand just how long that can be. Cheers to you and Paris, wishing you only the best...and I suppose for a 2011 release of "A Dance with Dragons."

Congratulations to you both!
Hey George & Parris,

Apologies for being late in my well wishes, but congratulations to you both! Your wedding photos are lovely. I'm glad to see you both so happy. And to read the Jokertown Cry's headline: The Turtle and Elephant Girl--together at last!

Best wishes,

Kevin
