Getting married in a state where it is illegal

As we announce our wedding to our family and friends we are getting the “Is it legal” question. Now—the way I am taking this question may not be what is intended but it makes me feel they are saying because it is not legal in the state of Indiana for two of the same sex to marry then my celebration is less important. Technically a marriage is just a piece of paper you get at your local court house—the wedding is the celebration after. The Wedding Ceremony is a ceremony of love, the love between two people, and the guest are there to show their love and support for the couple. The only thing different about our wedding and others is a piece of paper. Our Love is just as strong, if not stronger; our Commitment to each other is just as meaningful. We share the same last name, we sleep in the same bed, we love each other more than words can express. We are Mrs. & Mrs. Eggers—deal with it! No laws and certainly no person is going to tell me what I can’t have, can’t do, can’t love. Those who think they can really don’t know me! I find a way. Redneck Republicans don’t scare me! (Ha!)

This is going to be a happy day for us; it’s going to be perfect and wonderful. I will never let the negative Nancy’s rain on our wedding!
