Our Lesbian Wedding – Legal in Amsterdam!

What a magical day! We are happy and proud to share one of the most extraordinary experiences both of us have ever had. When Oprah said what she did in her interview with Ricky Martin on November 2, 2010 (watch the video to see), coupled with the unabashed acceptance of the Netherlands, it inspired us to take our love to another level of visibility. So here we are world! From love, with love, to you. XO

    I love it all! Beautiful video, awesome song and unbelievable story. Finally I get to hear it. :-). I can’t tell you how happy I was to first read that your mom got to meet Maike and then to see a picture of her. For the brief time that I had the chances to enjoy the stories and times with her and Mike at the good ‘ol Carillon Wellness Center, I will remember the happiness and light they brought to my life forever. Such a strong and loving woman. One of those lights they brought to me was You! 🙂 miss ya tons and can’t wait to visit you both (and to meet your beautiful new wife). Great blog!

    1. Kerri… oh how I adore you! Thank you so much for your loving message. I love your beautiful spirit and can’t help but smile whenever I think of our times together. I am grateful that you met my mom and Mike… that means so much. Our home is open to you and your wonderful husband, who I also can’t wait to meet!

    Maike is beautiful and you look absolutely radiant !

    I watched it twice. Just now again with Nathaly who wanted me to tell you “I miss you Auntie Linda”. Really enjoyed watching it – love all the pictures & the song. I feel like we had just been there to share the special day with you. The venue was in a park ? Lovely. I love how the photos captured the tender moments – Maike’s legs out of the car, Jamie wiping your face, all the hugs, the tears.

    Thank you for sharing ! We miss you.

    1. Hi Mei… thank you so much! Yes, it was held on the terrace of the Film Museum in Vondelpark, which reminds me of a little Central Park. Beautiful place.

      Re the photos… our photographer, Tertius Xavier van Oosthuyzen, was extraordinary… we are very thankful.
      Big hug to my favorite dancer Nathaly…
      Love and miss you too,
