Big news in the Emma and Kev Palace! We tied the knot! We made a few different plans for destination weddings and some other ideas which involved various friends and family but we just decided to go with a wedding chapel. It was starting to be stressful and the destination wedding options were causing some hurt feelings for those who couldn’t take time from work or afford the travel. Kev and I decided that it simply wasn’t worth the hurt feelings and decided to do it our own way. We had drive through options, we could even have Elvis Presley marry us but opted for the more traditional $200 package which included everything we needed.
Is this the princess wedding that I’d imagined, not even close! A marriage chapel in the number three gambling city in America? really? Is this the prince that I had imagined spending the rest of my life with? Not even close! This guy blew away my expectations of what a partner could be. I couldn’t be happier with the person he is, the person I am and the people that we’ve evolved into together.
This is just a quick blog post to keep all of you loving and supportive readers updated on my life because you’ve been such a big part of it this whole time. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
As of May 14th we are Mrs. and Mr. and it feels great! We both have a huge weight off our chest about the planning and managing details. All of our house guests but one have left and we are just lounging around and relaxing. We don’t have any honeymoon plans until later this summer.
Is it tacky or imply that we don’t take our marriage commitment seriously?
No, this is just another example of doing things our own way.
Was Kev locked for our wedding?
Did we fly Andrew out so he could be our best man?
More on those fun facts later. Thank you all for coming along for our journey.
Very appropriate setting and participants. Marriage ceremonies should not be something you have to endure. Good for all of you to do it your way!
That is exactly the realization that Kev and I came to. Are we doing this for us or for them? Clearly OUR wedding is about US.
Congratulations Emma! I am so happy for you and Kev. Marriage is the best and you two already have such a great bond. Enjoy the bliss forever!
Thank you so very much! We are excited and it is long overdue. I never got used to calling him my fiancé but it seems very comfortable to call him my husband.
How did you settle the name game? I bet you are already working on that post. I look forward to hearing if you care to share!
Ultimately we decided that we will both be using my last name. I’m not working on any posts at the moment, just enjoying life with my new hubby. Don’t expect any new blogs until the weekend at the very earliest.
I like it! Enjoy your evolved man!
Holy shit Emma … Congratulations! Ms. K. and I couldn’t be happier for the two of you. What a great bit of news. This is by far the best, most exciting blog post on this entire site!
When Ms. K. and I renewed our wedding vows 8 years ago, I wore a cage as well. The symbolism was and always has been so very powerful going forward.
I can’t wait to hear all about it. One last house guest huh? I wonder if that could be ……
Thank you! The journey of partnership that Kev and I have taken is amazing and I wish the same happiness for everyone on this site. We love each other and we know each other deeply, the good parts and the not so good parts. Yeah we still have one house guest who will be staying through Saturday night.
Can’t wait to hear the details of after the wedding. Did Kevin watch as another man consummated the marriage while he looked on and locked up?
Congratulations to both of you!
Thank you! Very much appreciated!
You did not! Kev’s a cuckold already? Details, please!
We aren’t using any labels or names for the moment, just loving and enjoying our new lives together. It seems so weirdly comfortable to just say “husband” so let’s stick with that label for now.
Congrats! I definitely love how you did it and that you’re continuing to celebrate. Enjoy!
Congratulations to you both.
a fancy wedding, does not make a better marriage.
May your marriage endure and be as happy as you hope it to be.
Hi Emma and Kevin,
Just catching up on my EYM and want to offer my congratulations to you both on tying the knot. I hope your two have long and happy lives together.
