Ken & Allyson Got Married!

I recently returned from a trip to Ohio to see my good friends Ken & Allyson get married! It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time and totally relaxed the hell out of me. I was pretty on edge and stressed before I left Austin due to work and other things. But the weekend was absolutely perfect. They were married at the Columbus Athenaeum, a stunningly beautiful old theater located in the heart of downtown. Our hotels were just a few blocks away. Hilariously, there were two conventions staying the hotel. One was a gay bowling league and the other a women’s roller derby conference. There were tatoos and bowling laminates every where and made for a comical juxtaposition with the wedding crowd. You should’ve seen the pool!

Ken designed and ordered a custom gobo to shine upon the reception floor. Very neat!

Ken also gave me this lovely humidor as a wedding present. I will have to fight the urge to smoke cigars more often.

Mouth cancer, here we come!

Family time in Ohio was great too. I had to work on my laptop a lot of the time, but most people were occupied during the day anyway. I spent lots of time with cute babies and catching up. Overall, a  lovely time. Back to the grind in Austin. It’s hot, I’m tired, and desperately in need of some  alone time. Cheers to Ken & Allyson, old friends & family!
