Here's what Meredith has to say... "I posted these wedding photos because this was the most amazing day of my life. I’ve been married for about two months, and goddammit, it has been just the best, you know? Like, this woman, in these photographs? She’s incredible. She’s unreal. She’s kind and she’s thoughtful and she’s everything I never thought I deserved. She’s the woman who I get to spend the rest of my ridiculously lucky life with.
It’s so simple to me, to us.
But it’s so complicated to so much of the world. She and I can’t walk into the grocery store holding hands. I get tight-lipped when someone compliments my ring at work because I can’t determine if they are going to be “cool” with it or not. If they’ll report me for being “inappropriate” in our online survey. Again. My wife was fired from a job as a driver for a children’s occupational therapist because her boss saw us kiss at the mall— because she couldn’t have “that kind of person” around children. I walked myself down the aisle at my wedding because a church told my parents that it wasn’t possible for them to attend my wedding."
This story and the beautiful photos just stood out to me for the bravery Meredith and Kat have and the wonderful spirit they possess, in the face of all the things they have had to endure. They are such a beautiful couple and I wish them all the best and joy. My only sadness is that Meredith's parents weren't there to enjoy such a wonderful day for their beautiful daughter. For me, family comes first no matter the religious beliefs.
I so admire the bravery of these two and it goes to show, love has many ways of simply 'being'. There is no right or wrong when its simply down to two people who love each other. Love is just amazing for those who are blessed with it.
