As many of our friends and family already know, Herman and Alan Chin were officially married in the state of California on June 18th, 2008. We had a small ceremony in the garden of the Marin Civic Center with Steve Gregoire attending as a witness.
It was a short, moving ceremony, and even though I’ve lived with Herman for fifteen years, emotion lodged in my throat and I gave my vows with an unsteady voice. The real surprise came after, and I’m still feeling the effects of it. It feels different, being married that is. It feels like we’ve been given a precious gift that can’t be taken away.
The ceremony took place in the early afternoon, so unfortunately, most of the picture that our friend took were overexposed. But I’ll share some of the better picture with you here. Hope you enjoy them.
For those of you who don’t know us, Herman is the taller, handsome one.
