Wedding: Keven & Lynn

From Julia Mehler, Keven & Lynn’s photographer: Keven and Lynn’s Wedding was a beautiful lesbian wedding in Mill Valley California. Their matching gold wedding dresses designed by Nicole Miller matched their personalities perfectly. On the inside of their dresses they each had matching pins that said, “I’d rather be kissing my nerdy wife.” The day started at the Acqua Hotel in Mill Valley with a beautiful lake as the backdrop to some couple photos. Mill Valley Golf Course was a great venue for the ceremony and reception with lots of dark wood on the interior and a woodsy feel outside that worked well for a January wedding.

Keven and Lynn glowed with love and affection for each other. They had so much fun during their couple photographs laughing, whispering sweet nothings to each other, and sword fighting with their matching bouquets. The evening was filled with good food, lots of dancing with every guest participating, and even the hokey pokey. All of the guests and vendors lit up with glow sticks while dancing to good music. I am so glad that Keven and Lynn were finally able to legally tie the knot in California.

Engagement: Rheanna & Martha

From Martha: Rheanna once summed up our relationship in these terms: “it was…an energetically favoured chemical reaction,” it wasn’t a decision, it was just something that had to happen.

Rheanna is from Alberta, Canada. She moved thousands of miles away to New York City, just as I was doing the same from a medical school in the Caribbean. We happened to end up living in bordering neighborhoods of Brooklyn. She chose a kickboxing studio at random and began to take classes. I happened to go for a run one day and passed the same dojo’s van parked on the street. I decided to go to a kickboxing class. We met.

Six months later, Rheanna proposed at our favorite Italian restaurant in Brooklyn, and two months after that I asked her in front of the Rockefeller Christmas tree. We both said yes.

A couple of months later an LGBT photo series was going viral online. It was called “All Love Is Equal,” by Braden Summers. On a whim, I decided to email Braden and thank him for his work and ask for a recommendation of a photographer to shoot a series of Rheanna and I. Much to my surprise, he offered to personally work with us. Getting the photos done was such an amazing process and I will never forget it, or the lifelong memories Braden has given us in these photos.

Much of our relationship, even down to getting these engagement photos, could be called coincidence by some, or fate by others, or by us: an energetically favoured chemical reaction. The scales were tipped with Rheanna and I, and I couldn’t be happier.

Engagement: Jessica & Natalie

From Jessica & Natalie’s Photographer: Life is full of surprises. And no surprise is greater than finding the love of your life is right in front of you, encapsulated in a person you did not expect. Suddenly you can’t imagine life without them. The world is sweeter with them in it. Every memory you make is with them standing by your side. And while life may have taken you by surprise, when this happens there are only two words you need to remember: ‘I do.’

We met up in Elmira in the very spot that one year from that day they would be taking their wedding pictures at; our Engagement session a sweet kind of before to the Wedding Day’s after.

Meet the happy, blushing couple counting down the days to their wedding…

Wedding: Cassie & Dana

From Dana: Cassie and I met shortly after I moved to Maine on a blind, lesbian double date while dating other people…presumably a rare occurrence for the Bangor area. After a magical summer in Bar Harbor followed by two years apart for graduate school, we found ourselves back on Mount Desert Island with 200 of our favorite people to tie the knot.

Our wedding weekend was a wonderful disaster. Horrific weather moved our ceremony, messed up quite a few travel itineraries, and forced us to trade in fancy shoes for rain boots. The craziness forced my type-A tendencies to give way to taking in every moment. The amount of love, support, and incredible dance moves that filled our rainy tent was perfection we’ll never forget.

Engagement: Kylia & Taylor

From Taylor: Kylia and I met while attending Berry College in Rome, Georgia for our undergraduate degrees. We worked in the same molecular biology lab and were both competitive public speakers (nerdy I know). She had such a kind and giving spirit and was wicked smart to boot, needless to say I fell for her almost instantly. One night (with the help of her best friend and roommate) I burst into her dorm and declared my love! I was immediately, but gently, shot down by her telling me that she was straight. To my surprise, she came by the same means to tell me that it was only fair to give us a chance. Thus began our beautiful years together that have led us to Connecticut with her at Yale and me finishing preparations for medical school.
Kylia and I are both avid followers of the blog and she has been begging me to post our engagement shoot for months. I hope that this surprise post will be a much-needed treat!

Wedding: Monique & Nicole

My wife asked me to marry her on the New York State Capitol steps moments after gay marriage passed in New York. We then got married at half time at a women’s roller derby game in Albany, NY. We would love to share our story with you. Also,  here is a link to an article about the wedding which shares a lot about us.
