From the couple: After a glamping getaway in our California hometown – coupled with a surprise engagement…we later embarked on a country-side escape for our idealic engagement photo session. The North Georgia country-scape provided the perfect backdrop to capture our urban-meets-country flair!

Wedding: Sarah & Kelly

From Sarah: Kelly and I met four and a half years ago, and we were the quintessential “Uhaul” couple. Let’s just say, our first date lasted four days! We feel incredibly fortunate to have experienced the wedding of our dreams, surrounded by our friends and family in the most gorgeous place where I grew up. The entire weekend was perfect; we wanted everything to be low-key and comfortable. We frequently host people in our home and wanted to capture that feeling of hospitality. We were very purposeful in everything we chose to do (and all the wedding “rules” we chose not to follow!). I also grew up Jewish, and tradition is very important to both Kelly and me, so we wrote the entire ceremony together, adapting the customs to make it our own. It means the world to us that we had the opportunity to celebrate our love with such an amazingly supportive community.

Link Love: The Moth

We’re back with more Link Love, an occasional feature where we celebrate something we love in the LBTQ+ wedding space!

As a big old public radio nerd, I have always been a huge fan of The Moth, but I am happy to report that my love only grew as a result of watching this video about a woman who falls in love with her friend from college.

I won’t tell you what happens at the end, but you might be able to guess… Enjoy!

Wedding: Erin & Joy

From Jay, Erin & Joy’s photographer: Erin and Joy are both nurses, and met in Asheville, NC, where they used to live. They were introduced by a colleague and had been together since. They even relocated to Nashville together to continue their careers and life journey! They have two lovely children together, a boy and a girl, both of whom were integral part of their day—as you are about to see. It was a lovely fun-filled wedding at The Red House in Franklin, TN, a rock-and-roll-themed historic house with a modern feel.

We are so happy for all our Aussie brides & brooms—and hope this good news provides a boost to all those fighting around the world for justice for queer folks!

Wedding: Emily & Hayley

From Emily: My wife and I got married just over 2 years ago at a gorgeous historic building called The Rose Room in downtown Boise, Idaho. We also recently celebrated 6 years together and have a four legged corgi-lab daughter named Bea. We really never thought we’d be able to get married (especially in Idaho), but 10 days after marriage equality finally graced us with its presence in October 2014, we were engaged!

I (Emily) am an artist focusing on painting, drawing and mixed media. My wife Hayley is an amazing cook and feeds me all the good food! I am a vegetarian and Hayley is not, but she is so kind and graciously cooks us vegetarian dinners on the daily. So when we go out to eat, that’s usually when she takes the opportunity to get her bacon fix. We have a very supportive and wonderful family and friend group. Most of them have kiddos and we pride ourselves on being fun aunties and then we just go home to our four-legged kiddo. We are big fans of the show Parks and Recreation and watch that on repeat. Hayley loves football and Emily does not… So it’s the perfect time for Emily to hop in her art studio and Hayley to get her football on.

We are grateful for those before us who helped champion our rights as wife and wife. Thank you for sharing our story and I hope anyone reading this, no matter where they live, no matter where they’re from, knows they are loved and deserve a life where they get to be true to themselves and live their best life, however that may look.
