Adult Swim Bump

Bryan's Photo of the Kiss

Our flight coach Bryan took this photo while he stood on the ceiling, and then posted it on facebook. Bryan has a bunch of other cool photos on his photography website.

This Adult Swim bump aired last Sunday night! We were also mentioned on the BBC and Good Morning America, but obviously Adult Swim makes us much more famous.

Bucketful of Press


2 Comments »

A lot of the press seems to be getting a couple things wrong – Noah’s last name “Fulmor” has no “e” in it, for example. I didn’t wear “pants under the dress,” rather, pants were part of the design. The pants are the dress. We didn’t go to Disney World for our official honeymoon, I just wanted to go to Disney World. Next year we’ll go to Antarctica for our honeymoon. One news source (in Britain) also thinks the ceremony cost just $16,000 – I have no idea where they got that number, since it was more like $60,000.

If these links don’t work let me know, and I’ll fix it.

I forgot to mention Lambs Eat Ivy Salon in the CBS interview, but it was really, really short and weird and at 7:15 AM on Monday. I’ll do a whole post about the hair salon later.

I was also supposed to give a shout out to the 057 club, who were instrumental in decorating the bouquet. When I get higher resolution video and photos, hopefully you’ll be able to see the crystals attached on monofilament strings. The bouquet was put together by Jennifer Nicolosi at A Downtown Florist and Wedding Shop.

We have a long, long list of thank you notes to write. There are a lot of people without whom this ceremony would not have been possible!

The Deed is Done

The morning show we’ll be interviewed on tomorrow has been revealed to be “The CBS Early Morning Show.” They expect to get to us between 8:00 and 8:30am. There is always the possibility that we could be pre-empted by more pressing news (in particular given the state of affairs in Iran at the moment), but we should have about a five minute segment or so.

Etsy Earrings!


1 Comment »

I’m not someone who usually wears jewelery, and it occurred to me that I didn’t have any earrings to wear with my dress.

I commissioned a pair of zero gravity earrings using Etsy.com’s Alchemy function. Etsy.com, for those not in-the-know is an online marketplace for buying and selling handmade items. I’m a big fan of the site, and a lot of my friends have their own Etsy shops, including Kari, who’s going on the zero gravity flight with us.

Two Etsy jewelry makers made really attractive bids, so I commissioned Tesoro Bella Jewelry to make my earrings, and Treasuresheart to make earrings for my bridesmaids and my mom.

Here’s a picture of my earrings and bracelet!

Treasureheart’s earrings arrived in the mail today! They are totally sweet.

Hair and Make-up are go!


Comments Off on Hair and Make-up are go!

Today I did a trial run of my wedding hair at Lambs Eat Ivy Salon in downtown Orlando. The owner was really excited by the challenge of designing hair for zero gravity!

I picked Lambs Eat Ivy based on a series of criteria – first, it was listed as one of Citisearch’s top salons in Orlando. Second, my old roommate and good friend Demi is from Florida, and she really loves Twin Peaks, and in it, there’s a scene where a character sings the song about lambs eating ivy.

The salon is super-cool, and in a really cute neighborhood of Orlando.

After a couple of trials the owner came up with a really cool style for my wedding hair. Noah also received a quick trim and some hair product, so he is looking really sharp.

My hair is now straightened, I am under strict orders not to wash it. I have a lot of curly hair, so it’s super weird to have long straight hair.

Update from Florida

T minus 4 days until the wedding.

Noah and I successfully made it to Orlando. Today we’re off to get a marriage license and talk to a florist.

It turns out there will be two shuttle launches while Noah and I are here! (Weather permitting.) I’ve been looking up the best places to view launches. I don’t know if we can actually make the 5:41 AM launch tomorrow, but maybe the 5:12 PM launch on Thursday…
