Nico Tortorella and Bethany Meyers’ wedding was never going to conform to tradition.
The Younger actor and his longtime partner are in a “queer polyamorous relationship”. Both date other people, with Meyers’ exclusively dating women outside of Tortorella.
After 12 years together, the pair tied the knot earlier this month, throwing convention out of the window with their private ceremony. It was beautiful.
“A few months shy of 32. The wedding day. No guests. No flowers. No rings. My “dress,” consisting of trousers. His “tux,” gown inclusive. I suppose you would dub our wedding color white. It was certainly the most traditional thing we did,” the couple wrote in an essay about their big day for Them.
The pair wore “genderbending ensembles” designed by friend Andrew Morrison and were “everything [they’d] ever dreamed of”.
The fact that they both wore trousers and a dress was an important and symbolic decision.
“Timeless androgynous paraphernalia mimicking romanesque sculpture that fluidly blends masculine and feminine. in this relationship, we both wear the pants and the dress,” they explained.
Can’t believe I kept my mouth shut for an entire week until we shared this. We waited because we wanted the opportunity to tell our story, in our own words—which we did—and I hope you take a moment of your day to read and open your mind to what different types of love can look like. Link to the article found in our bios. Thank you to @them for giving us a platform to tell it on. @victoriamatthews_ for her incredible photography skills. @andrewmorrisonstudio for creating these gender fluid looks. And @jkcarrington for ensuring the day ran as smooth as could be.
