Guests gathered in the Ballroom for the ceremony. That’s Ken Kolodner in the background, playing the hammered dulcimer.
We’ve been doing same-sex “commitment ceremonies” since 2004. This is our first same-sex ceremony, under the new Maryland law, that is legally a wedding. Hurrah!
The Rev. Richele Eraso, on the right, was the officiant.
Jonathan and Brian are known for their “Doctor Who” exits!
The decor was stunning! Red and orange rocked on top of the neutral cream and brown tones of the Ballroom. The banner over the fireplace was hung after the ceremony, while the guests were in the Library and Foyer for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres (you’ll see it more clearly below).
Everyone involved was ecstatic, especially these two!
