    I have a confession to make...

    I'm actually...not...DEAD, per se.

    PHEW! Am I glad I got that off my chest!

    That being said, I got a few nice private messages after that blog post, and it was really great to read after a long, exhausting day. I want to say thanks, again, to the people who messaged me!

    FILL IN THE BLANK WHAT SHE WOULD SAY THERE TO TURN A STALLION DOWN!!

    Watched todays MLP episode...watch out, spoilers ^_^

    I liked it. Discord can be a very interesting character! Though, now my husband keeps telling me that Discord ships Rarijack -_- I think Discord ships himself with Twilight =/ ANYWAYS!!

    Did anyone else think of "It's Dangerous Business, Going Out Your Door" towards the end of the episode?

Yesterday I got married... · 7:50am Sep 23rd, 2013

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday - bright and sunny.

Friday - overcast with a slight foggy drizzle, if anything.

Saturday - Rains like a mofo.

Sunday - bright and sunny. Not a cloud in the sky.

For most people, this was just odd bay area weather that may or may not have interfered with their plans.

For me, it was rain on my outdoor wedding day.

But it's okay ^_^ I'm a writer. I love interesting stories. And my wedding day certainly made for an interesting story! From the rainbows we saw on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge, to the precious shots of my soon-to-be husband and I standing near the bridge (the whole purpose of having an outdoor wedding), to the sudden downpour that got a good portion of us drenched (and made my carefully tended coiffure become a puff ball of frizz), to the sudden relocation and timing of our ceremony amidst pony related paraphernalia for our reception. Making people cry with our vows. Being stalked by photographers. Games and fun and celebration of a reception. Explaining pony stuff to guests in the vaguest way possible. Having quiet moments alone with my new husband only to realize we were being stalked by one of our photographers. Photo ops. Speeches and more tears. Laughter. Love. Lots and lots of love.

It all seemed so surreal and it was all soooo exhausting. But it was all so worth it, and I just can't believe I'm married now ^_^ I'm someone's wife. That's just weird...

And oh, the ponies!!! It wasn't quite at spaghetti level, but we didn't do anything subtle about ponies like we planned. We just threw that out the window. I don't have the pictures from the photographer back (and won't for a while), and I barely took any pictures of my own, so you'll just have to do with a sneak preview of a really important part of the wedding - the cake topper...or at least, what happened to it after SOMETHING happened to it:

Let me just give you some of the highlights of the pony-ness: poison joke centerpieces with color changing clouds hanging over them, blind bags to certain guests, cake topper, pony beanies to give away as gifts, apple themes, fallen leaves, apples everywhere (even painted on my ring finger nail), pony references in BOTH our vows and in the officiant's speech. Activity books for the kids, as well as stickers for the scrap-book guest book. Rainbow Dash garter. Pony songs in the music mix, including walking out to "love is in bloom". And appletree was involved in the ceremony. We even bought a rainbow umbrella in case it rained, but I forgot it in my car. OH! And we gave the kids some tiny little rat figurines in their gift bags....and no one was explained WHY.

In the end, the Rarity and Rainbow Dash blind bags that we had in two of the centerpieces were stolen, Rainbow fell off of the cake topper somehow (or maybe was shoved), one person asked us what was up with the apple theme, one brother and nephew made fun of one bride by saying that the food must have been pony themed too, and we were eating Pinkie Pie.

Here are two pictures I got from someone else who had the forethought to take pictures of:

Anyways, it's late, I'm tired, and I can't think of what else to say, soooo, here's a picture of our hands together, probably the only picture of US you will get, taken in the limo. Still unmarried as we got rained out. Nervous about our vows...

Have a good night!

I'm so happy for both of you! Congrats! :twilightsmile:

I keep telling my friends about this, because it's just the cutest story ever.

I'm glad you guys had a wonderful wedding. I garuntee that it will make a great story to tell your children one day. Although don't do it How I Met Your Mother style, I think you should keep it short and sweet. :rainbowlaugh:

A thousand congratulations to you both! I wish you the best of fortune on your journey through life together. :pinkiehappy:

PS: That's some really awesome cake you had there.

Awwwwww! Congratulations to you both!

I had to ride ten miles home on a bicycle in that storm... :ajbemused: I'm in sac btw...

Happy weddings stuffs though.:rainbowwild:

Grats and I hope Applejack helps Rainbow get that frosting off of her *winkwink* :rainbowlaugh:

Congrats! Was Spike in charge of the bachelor party?

Congratulations!

Congratulations! I hope you two are happy together for a long, long time.

Congratulations!

Saw your cake on Reddit hours before I saw your post! Didn't know it was yours :p

Congrats!

I'd wish you a wonderful marriage, but based on the wedding photos, I don't think I have to.
I'm sure you two will be very happy together. Congrats.

This is the awesomest and cutest wedding I've ever heard of. I mean, pony references in your vows? Damn, girl. I'm impressed.
Have a best life together, you two! :pinkiehappy:

Congratulations to the two of you!

Sooooo awesome :rainbowkiss:

And if we don't hear from you for a while Ill assume you got stuck in a tree stump :rainbowwild::ajbemused::rainbowkiss::ajsmug:

Wow you guys are cute. I'm absolutely certain you'll be more than happy together.

Now please tell me you have chocolate covered grapes as part of the reception fare!

Congratulations!
I knew he was going to marry someone but it wasn't until he posted that you wrote "Stuck" before I made the connection.

Obviously Dash thought the cake was a cloud. What do you expect when you surround a pegasus with white icing?

Congratulations! They say rain is lucky on your wedding day. At least, that's what they told me. At the time, I told people they just said that to keep brides with outdoor weddings from going insane, but I'm still married five years later, so it seems to have worked. I hope the rain is as lucky for you as it has been for me.

grats dude we're all happy for you

Congratulations! May you enjoy being stuck together. (Had to make the joke...)

Congratulations on your new life together! I'm very happy for you both. :twilightsmile:

And wow, that rain! I couldn't believe how hard that was after months and months of nothing. Had to happen on your wedding day, right?! By 'they' say there's always 'one thing' that happens at any wedding to screw up your carefully made plans (it was true for me), and I'm glad this one didn't dampen yours too much. Er, so to speak.

May you both inspire each other in all things pony and otherwise together. :raritystarry:

OMG O.o 24 responses? Awesome! ^_^ Thank you all for the kind wishes!

1369884 Heh, thanks. We were talking about our story earlier today, and how we can't quite tell anyone in our friends and family the WHOLE story, but it's nice to tell people online the beginnings ^_^

1369931 "Kids, let me tell you the story about how I met your father. It started when I got into a show that was very popular at the time: My Little Pony"

1369956 Perhaps that was your punishment for living in Sac.... *grin* =P

1369996 The only good thing that can come from being covered in frosting!

1369997 hmmm...that might explain why there wasn't one!

1370053 WHO THE HECK PUT OUR WEDDING CAKE ON REDDIT?!?!?!?!? Oh, God, I don't want to know what people are saying about it!!!!

1370131 He ended his vows with, "I'm glad to be stuck with you" and I included the elements of harmony as the key part of my vows. Maybe I should put them up eventually...Oh, and I also called him the "Applejack of my eye", and despite the fact that our officiant rolled his eyes at that, he was the one who made the corniest reference. He talked about love being based on friendship, and even said, "The magic of friendship". Even I found that cringe worthy.

1370174 -_- ....that would be fun......

1370187 Oh, my GOD! I didn't even THINK about that!!! >_< We were referencing the show, not our own creations for the show, except for a stuck reference in his vows.

1370204 O.o He's mentioned it before ^_^

1370299 That...is the CUTEST reason for Dash to be in the cake! I read it outloud to my new husband when I saw it on my phone, and he was all, "awwwwww!" Also, I totally believe in that luck thing. I mean, what are the chances that the first time he sees rain here while living in California is on his wedding day, and then it's bright, sunny, and no cloud in the sky any other day?

1370615 There was a stuck joke in the vows: Here Sorry, he beat you to it ^_~

1371086 Heh, like I said, certainly made for an interesting story =) So much better than, "Hey, we got married, and NOTHING WENT WRONG!"

1371728 Oh, I saw that too. Just felt I had to make one as well. I can't resist a good pun.

1371728

Oh its shown up a number of times now on /pics /funny (A subreddit that rarely has anything funny on the front page because the chaff mistake it for /mildlyinteresting and upvote anything that looks neat regardless of humor) and a few others. Fraid no comments stand out at the moment worth noting

Congratulations! Cheers to a long and happy marriage, and may your inspirations never run dry. :pinkiehappy:

Now for you I shall make RD lick AJ...

:ajbemused: Come again?
:rainbowderp: You wouldn't!
:applejackconfused::rainbowwild:
:applejackunsure: Oh now you done it!
:ajbemused: RD, get mah rope...
:rainbowdetermined2: I'm on it!

:facehoof: Shhhh...shhh...quiet the voices.

I'm so happy for you both! That is the most perfect wedding and I hope you have an amazingly long amount of years together :twilightsmile:
