Newlyweds Alexa Lemley and Samantha Aulick
My cousin Alexa Lemley, on the right in the picture, and her longtime life and business partner Samantha Aulick just got married. Alex and Sam eloped from Columbus, Indiana (an hour south of Indianapolis) to Chicago on June 2, the first day it was legal in Illinois, and are planning a big reception with family and friends in August. As it happens, they are in the catering business, and they know how to throw a party.

Alex and Sam also create artisan marshmallows at 240 Sweet, and would be delighted to provide them as wedding presents for other same-sex marriages anywhere in the country, either as a one-off, or as a subscription to the Marshmallow of the Month Club. June 2014 Marshmallow of the Month Club puffs were Chocolate Chip Cookie, Strawberry Peppercorn, and Sangria. For July, the selections are Hoosier Momma Bloody Mary with Bacon, Pistachio, and Red Velvet Cake. Free shipping!

This is what we are talking about.

Six varieties of artisan marshmallows from 240Sweet

Or you can just go Like Alexa's Facebook page. They are currently asking for as many old bundt cake pans as possible to make their wedding cake. My wife and I have offered some she inherited. I am trying not to imagine how that will all work.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
