PDA

View Full Version : What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas

Sometime in August 2007 I was in the AW chat room (http://www.starchat.net/chat/?chan=absolutewrite) when ChimeraCreative first joined. Spunky, flirty, sarcastic and quick-witted -- we became fast friends. Over time, it developed into something more.

There were a lot of things (http://www.stonetable.org/2008/11/02/we-fear-opening-the-door-because-of-what-is-lurking-behind-it/%3Cbr%20/%3E) we had to overcome, including being from different countries. No barrier can stand in the way of our love, though. We went to California for a Christmas party last week. On the way home, we stopped over in Las Vegas. On the 13th of December 2008, in a simple ceremony, we were married. Best friends, joined together.

We are very grateful to Jenna, MacAllister, and everyone who makes Absolute Write what it is. Without them and all they've done to make this place what it is, we would never have met.

- Adam & Andrea Israel

I haven't heard anything. I'd think I'd be invited to that since I'm the one who told him to go for it.

Congrats, AW couple!

And did you get the Elvis or ABBA package?

Adam Israel
12-17-2008, 08:25 AM
No singing Elvis, although he did enter the building. We opted for a simple ceremony, just us, the minister and the witness. Andrea had a single pink rose, which she later gave to a little girl who came in for a later wedding.

Shucksicles, ain't no big thing. ^_^ The wedding was really simple and thoroughly enjoyable. The Bellagio was great, the gambling was fun, the people were interesting. If there are anymore AW couples looking to get hitched in Vegas, Adam and I will gladly be your witnesses (for the wedding, not the wedding night). ^_^

I'm grateful I met such a wonderful, caring man and that we made the opportunity to fall in love. Coming from different countries, it hasn't been easy. But it's all worth it, I adore being married to Adam. ^_^ I'd like to thank AW; the folks that post here, the folks that lurk here and the folks that make it run. Mostly, I'd like to thank the regular chatters from about a year ago. They had to put up with waaaaay too much flirting on my behalf and Adam's. ^_^

Congratulations Stone. I know how you feel. I met my wife while living in England and she lives in the US. So I moved over here and we've been married 3 and a half years :D

This is great news! It's wonderful to hear your romance has blossomed, and that AW played a role in your union.

Congratulations, and best of luck to you both. :)


... Do we have other AW couples? This is cool.
I'm pretty sure our L M Ashton and Fahim met here before they wed.
