    Love this. So you. So many more great moments to come. Thanks for sharing them.

    Trying to be open-minded, but come on, this sounds like a couple of third graders. I guess the ‘childlike’ is really coming through.
    And when you have a category tag like ‘geeky’ you’re generally not, just lame.
    On another note: Felicitations!

    The whole ceremony was wonderful and personal. It really reflected the two of you wonderfully!

    We have so many mutual friends, I feel like I know you guys though we’ve not met. I loved watching all this through their eyes. (Having had the first engagement on twitter and then the first full “twitter wedding” (#tweetwed), I feel even closer to @k as one of the people who builds a big part of my life. LOL)

    You guys are adorable—huge congrats. <3 the binary day, the vows and engagement pictures! Thanks for sharing with us all. It's happy-making. We need more of that. :)

    Thanks everyone for your wishes!

    @stephanie: We HAVE met, albeit ever so briefly outside the line for Cogaoke this past SxSW. We saw your vows and they were wonderful! And we totally agree about happy-making.

    @bill smith: Anyone who knows us will understand that the vows are particularly fitting because of who we are and who we’ve been for each other. We’re definitely not novelists, but these are our words. If you’re ever in San Francisco, we’ll be happy to get a coffee with you so you can understand us, then perhaps have better context to the vows. You may still think we’re lame and that’s cool, too.
