I Am Officiating A Wedding!

Published January 6, 2015 by suejansons

Love is in the air! Yup! I am officiating a wedding! And not just any wedding. It is the wedding of our very good friends, John and Alex! I am a notary, and in Florida, notaries have the authority to perform wedding ceremonies. I think many other states allow notaries the same authority.

But anyway, Florida became the 36th state to allow same sex marriages! Today was the first day that gay and lesbian couples were allowed to sign for licenses. In Florida there is a 3 day waiting period, but if you take a class, you can get married that same day. Who knew? Not me.

But John and Alex are waiting until Friday to have their ceremony along with two other couples and asked me to officiate! So excited for them!

We have known John and Alex for a few years now. We met at Universal Studios while we were waiting to see Cindy Lauper. We friended each other on Facebook and FourSquare and met up a few times and the rest is history! We have gone on cruises together, spent holidays together, you name it. They are the kindest, most generous friends and we are so happy that we can call them friends!

This will be the second marriage ceremony I will have performed, but the most important one to me. I researched lots of ceremonies and showed the happy couple what I found. They liked the same ceremony that I did, which is super cool! I am going to keep it hush-hush until after the big day.

They plan on having a larger more formal ceremony in the near future but wanted to take their vows now as they have waited a long time for this right. I hope they ask me to marry them during that ceremony as well.

My husband plans to take pictures and I will share them with you  this weekend! Super excited and happy for them!
