“On January 9th, 2021, Michael and I said our vows and become spouses by law. That’s right! Mama got married. (Cue the Gypsy soundtrack) — we had an at home wedding, witnessed by our housemates, with our officiant Deven Green, safely Skyping in, and our family and friends watching safely through Zoom.

“It was the perfect day. Special thanks to @planettammie and @bendelacreme and our Best Person, Kenneth Lee for the integral parts they played in the ceremony. (All photos taken by @liamkrug_.”

Michael also shared pics and a tribute on Insta, saying: “On Saturday, I married my best friend and love of my life.

“It was, like the greatest aspects of our relationship thus far, truly unconventional. But full of bliss.

“It’s been easier to forget, this year and last, but this experience has been the ultimate reminder of how beautiful life is and how thankful I am for all of it that I’m allowed.”

Congrats, both!
