This is a call to Wedocracy – nuptials of the people, by the people, for the people.

We want nothing less than to reform the contemporary concept of what weddings have to be, and replace it with what people want it to be.

We want to empower people with the resources and tools to do just that.

Don’t get us wrong – we had our traditional nuptials. But we had them our way, and nobody else’s. Because we were the ones marrying. And, despite the odds, it was the most happy, beautiful day and evening either of us could imagine.
