Link Love: We Have an Instagram!

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

It feels a little like cheating, but this Friday we’re taking advantage of Link Love to celebrate our brand-new A Bicycle Built for Two Instagram! You’ve been asking for at least a year, and thanks to our new staff members (more on this amazing crew coming soon!), we can finally deliver: a shiny new account dedicated to sharing new posts, images from our archives, and all things LBTQ+ wedding.

Look for Link Love every Friday through the end of August—and drop us a line if you have a suggestion for a featured link!

Wedding: Carole & Louise

From Carole & Louise’s photographer: Carole & Louise had a relaxed barn wedding in the UK. The day was set in the rolling countryside. They had a bright colour scheme, with orange details and flowers. Both brides wore white trousers and tops—the typical princess wedding dress wasn’t for them. Very in keeping with the relaxed vibe of the day, focus was on friends, family, and good food.

Engagement: Allison & Tiffany

From the couple’s photographer, Cassandra: For Allison and Tiffany, it was love at first sight. Playful, lighthearted, and endlessly making one another laugh, these lovebirds infuse joy in all who surround them.

Our original plans to visit a Nashville park for Allison and Tiffany’s destination engagement were very much canceled when the skies opened up and it stormed the entire weekend. We moved our session to the gorgeous Gaylord Opryland Resort, which featured architectural details, palms, fountains, and even beautiful New Orleans-style buildings — which all made for the perfect location to celebrate their upcoming “I Do’s.”

Link Love: I Feel Love in This Chili’s Tonight

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

chilis

It’s finally Friday—and I’ve been waiting all week to share this Link Love because, really, how could we *not* let you know about this amazing couple and their Chili’s engagement shoot? Ashley and I love Chili’s so much that this winter, we celebrated our fifth (dating) anniversary with sizzlin’ fajitas—so it goes without saying that we were enthused by these adorable pictures of writer Krista Doyle (author of the book Does This Bible Belt Make Me Look Gay?) and her fiancee!

For more photos from this chips-and-salsa lovefest, head on over to The Advocate, and read about how Krista tweeted their photos to Chili’s and the chain responded with a special congratulatory gift. Pam Beasley would be proud, don’t you think?

Wedding: Jania & Jessica

From Albert, Jania & Jessica’s photographer: These two ladies were absolutely a blast to work with, not to mention their families and their bridesmaids (who wore suits and ties to defy the norm) were fabulous the whole day! Not to mention the ladies’ love for one another shone throughout the whole day and set the mood and tone for the many years to come! It was an honor to photograph and ensure their memories live on forever!

Link Love: Love Les

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

This week, we’re excited to share Love Les, a photography and interview site focused on queer stories! Leslie, the site’s founder and namesake, is a self-described lipstick lesbian and LGBTQ+ advocate, committed to uplifting and affirming love in all its forms. She says she’s a “hopeless romantic,” but Leslie’s site is filled with hope—in the form of conversations with queer folks about their coming out stories, relationships, and ways of moving through the world.

Because Leslie is based in Atlanta, her site is a gold mine for stories of Southern queers—but she’s also interviewed folks as far away as New York City. Head on over to Love Les to read stories from A Bicycle Built for Two‘s very own Taylor, military couple Krystal & Brook (pictured here), and “wild and holy woman” Jes Kast, a femme minister with a collection of “different colored heels to match the liturgical calendar.”

We can’t get enough of these stories and images—and we’re so grateful to Leslie for her work on this amazing project!
