Derek, from Two Ring Studios, emailed me yesterday and said “It’s a sad day here in NC with the passing of Amendment 1. So, I thought the timing of posting Patty and Lisa’s commitment ceremony this week might raise awareness of the issue.”
I agree! As a big eff-you to North Carolina for their decision to deny basic civil liberties to their residents, today’s wedding features a (still) proud, lesbian, North Carolina couple.
From Derek: Patty and Lisa were officially wed in Boston, MA earlier in year, but they celebrated their marriage in the lush mountains of Asheville, NC. Surrounded by friends and family, a blessing service was held at Trinity Episcopal Church in downtown Asheville followed by an enchanted reception at Biltmore Estate’s Lioncrest venue. The lovely couple wore dresses in shades of blue that complimented the floral embellishments of hydrangea and lilies. Lanterns hanging from trees lit up the beautiful spring evening as guests danced the night away to jazz vocalist Kat Williams.
Are you kidding me with this last picture? That setting (and photo!) is stunning… I think an excursion to the Biltmore is in order. More importantly, congratulations ladies and thank you for being an exceptional example of love and commitment in the face of discrimination.
