Their Celtic, blue-moon wedding marked the 24th anniversary for these two brides

By on Jun. 9th Photos by Sarah Beck Photo

Dee and Deb had already been together for 24 years when they married in upstate New York on the night of a literal blue moon. That just blows my mind. Twenty-four YEARS. Time flies — this August will mark another two years since their wedding! The couple kept things very simple, purchasing rings, clothing, and a few items for the ceremony online. The ceremony itself looks fascinating, with rituals that involved sharing drinks from a chalice, a handfasting, and jumping the broom. Dee and Deb shared an intricate cake, showcasing phases of the moon, and a toast to cap the intimate occasion.
