Caius & Tullia get Married, as the Romans Do

Pictures and videos are still trickling in, but I wanted to post a few of my favorites so far. I will combine the pics and the documentation into a giant thing as soon as I can.

Another view of the whole thing is here  by Dan Antal.33748359_10212264922280289_8506624750582235136_n.jpg

I don’t know if anyone got the procession or the Lares ceremony. The Lararium I was borrowing for the event didn’t make it, so Caius, Vivien, Rainbow, and Kristine scrambled at the last minute to create some Lares. ❤33943116_2032541796819177_6244984939188584448_n.jpg

It was even more beautiful, touching, fun, and funny than I dreamed. I had so much help and it was all wonderful. ❤
