A few days ago a wedding certificate showed up on the table, but I didn’t get a chance to ask my mom about it til this morning, when she said it was happening this afternoon! My mom and her parter have been engaged for about a decade but recent circumstances actually made it beneficial for them to do so.
I offered to be a witness and followed them to the courthouse where it turns out a witness wasn’t needed (either tv shows lied to me or it’s different based on location), so I was the official iphone wedding photographer. Really pro. It’s been raining all week but the sun came out for a bit and my mom found a nice rose bush outside to stand by.
Despite how aloof they both are towards marriage in general, they were very happy and a bit emotional, it was very sweet. My mom was on a conference call for work right up minute we had to leave to go to the courthouse, then took a minute to slip into a pretty white dress and heels. She’s kind of a badass.
