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!

In case you are a member of the press and missed the press event last night, I have made the press kit available online here.

Noah’s last name is spelled “Fulmor” with no “e”. Noah Fulmor. It’s an unusual name.

The press event was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who showed up, and special thanks to Kush for letting us host the event.

Thanks to our media campaign (thanks to Kari and Phil!) there are already some news stories:

Launch Party & Press Event 6/2/09


Comments Off on Launch Party & Press Event 6/2/09

Noah and I will be hosting a launch party, press conference and blogger meet-up* at 7:00pm on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009 at the Kush Lounge:

It’s one small step for man, one potentially nausea-inducing leap for matrimony. A couple of space enthusiasts are getting married in zero gravity, so they’re throwing a party for what promises to be a history-making event. Drop in to get the how’s and why’s behind their wedding, which will take place aboard something called the “Vomit Comet.” There’ll be space-themed music, free Space Food Sticks to munch on, and a custom-made zero gravity wedding gown will even be on display.


*The press conference will run from 7:30-8:00 followed by a question and answer session. This will be an opportunity to meet us, get a press pack and take pictures of the dress.

Tell your friends!
