You might not remember their names, but you probably remember their fairytale marriage proposal — a flashmob at Central Park’s iconic Bethesda Fountain — which went viral back in May.
Last month, Carl Marucci and Drew Marsenison married, and they’ve just released a video of their wedding day.
To say they know how to live a beautiful life is an understatement.
So, does being married feel any different?
“Here’s something I posted on Facebook only four days after the wedding that really captures things,” Marucci told The New Civil Rights Movement yesterday:
“In a crowded doctor’s office today I burst into tears. Let me back up to a conversation with Drew the day after our wedding …
Carl: Baby, do you feel any different now that we’re married? Drew: No, not really. You? Carl: I feel VERY different. Drew: How? Carl: I feel that nothing or no one can take us away from each other–no church, no state, no federal government, no hospital denying either of us visiting or caring rights… Nothing!
(Back to the crowded doctor’s office this morning.) I was filling out the paperwork and for the first time I checked off the “married” box and identified Drew’s relationship to me as “husband,” at which I burst into tears.
‘Are you OK, asked the physician’s assistant?’
‘I’m happy, I’m very happy.’
I feel very different …”
Congratulations to the lovely couple, and thanks for being an inspiration!
