Peter & Michael
OUR COMING OF AGE – We first met in Baltimore, Maryland in May of 1995 and moved in together 2 months later. Peter proposed to Michael in 2003. Being in the Army at the time, Michael declined. In 2005 after being together 12-years Michael left the Army and thought, “He has not gone or left in the past 12-years, he isn’t going anywhere, no need to get married now.” However, with the recent legalization of gay marriage in Maryland and the timing being, “just right,” Michael proposed to Peter on Thanksgiving day 2012 to a resounding “si papi.” THE PLAN – Fly to Baltimore, Maryland for a LEGAL wedding ceremony on May 6th, our 18th anniversary of being together. Our dreamy destination wedding is planned for August 10th as a casual sun rise ceremony on the beach in San Juan, PR followed by a 7-day cruise. After all the glorious events, we will return to Texas where gay marriage is null and void and our marriage will not be recognized by the state! NO GIFTS NECESSARY – Our gift from you is your attendance in San Juan. Any thoughts of gift monies apply towards your plane ticket/hotel, we want to see everyone who receives an invitation. RSVP by email on or before March 15, 2013 at 0506TomakGonzalez_RSVP@hushmail.com
Love InspirationThe inspiration for our wedding is FINALLY having the serious validation of our commitment as state government legalizes gay marriage. Our love and commitment have always been prolific. Oh yeah, and Michael's realization how much diamonds sparkle.
