Kitten and Lou's drag king weds burlesque queen extravaganza #Real Weddings: Western US#bounce house#brooch bouquet#burlesque#LGBTQ#mixed-gender wedding party#seattle#tattooed bride#washington Updated Jan 9 2018 (Posted Sep 16 2013) Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photos by: Nate Gowdy Photography Susanna and Ricki, aka Kitten and Lou, are a drag king and a burlesque queen in lurve. After meeting on stage and falling in love while performing in an Atomic Bombshells revue, they have become the world's showbusiest couple. Since Washington state passed Referendum 74, they knew it was time to get hitched… in some serious style. A little camp, a lot of glam, and a hell of a lot of performances, it is a confetti and balloon-festooned show not to be missed. Thanks to Nate Gowdy for sharing these amazing photos with us.
