As promised, this is the second half of yesterday’s same sex wedding. I get goosebumps looking as this first picture. The ruffles, the light, the Californian landscape, the serenity. This is a two-dress wedding done perfectly. Photos by Nicole Anderson.

I have been not-so-patiently waiting to share the wedding of Arley-Rose and Morgan, the talent behind Ladyfingers Letterpress. Their wedding was a collaboration of friends and family that took place on Seven Arrows Farm in Massachusetts. Neon invitations, jeans, singing, tears of joy; how can you not be inspired by their lesbian love story.
From Arley-Rose: We had booked a school bus to haul our guests from the hotel and the wedding and Morgan hopped on! She traveled with our family and friends to the farm while I drove with my mom and sisters in my mom’s car. Traditions? What traditions? We were all about creating new ones that day.
We walked with our families down the aisle in threes, led by our flower girl, Louise (the daughter of our good friends Shawn and Jill), followed by my cousin and ring-bearer Nick and my two sisters, then Morgans two brothers and sister. I walked down with my mom and dad on each arm, and Morgan followed with her two parents.
Hand in hand, Morgan and I floated on some kind of cloud as we stood in front of 130 of our closest and dearest family and friends. Alyn’s words were amazing and we held back tears as we looked into each others eyes and sent secret brain messages to each other “We are so lucky!” I could hear her think! I wonder if she could hear my thinking about the delicious dinner we were about to eat. Hmm. Anyway, Alyn shared her wisdom about creating “a cozy spot” – that middle space of shared sanctuary in a venn diagram of individualism where she urged us to never lose sight of ourselves as independents, but never stray too far from that cozy spot where we become more than individuals. She quoted the United Nations when they declared that “Marriage is a human right” and stirred up our inner activists as she quoted Sir William Robert Ferdinand Mount when he said “Marriage is a subversive act against authority.” At some parts of the reception I had forgotten that what we were doing was even illegal in some states, but quotes like that brought me back to the reality – and importance – of what we were doing.
I performed two songs, the first was a cover of “Be My Baby” by the Ronettes and the second song was a song I wrote for Morgan a few years ago called Balloon Heart.
Can’t you practically hear her singing just looking at that picture? Well, if you actually want to hear her sing and for more wedding details, check out their wedding blog

Alaine and Jenna incorporated their love of industrial downtown Detroit and their boisterous personalities into their colorful lesbian wedding…
I love how they tied the black, white and gray of their wedding attire together. And that industrial space! Jealous.

Emily and Meghan were same-sex married at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in Hillsboro Oregon. I love the robin’s egg blue and the bicycle built for two (of course). And the love! It just radiates from the photos.
Poor Emily was hit by a car a week before the wedding and had a huge brace on one of her legs for the whole night. Hence the “Just Married” wheel chair

Blog, I forgot about you for a moment. Autumn arrived in NYC and that pretty much trumps all. I was gently brought back to reality by Leah who emailed to say: I came across this wedding and oh my god, you need to see it. It is, they are, gorgeous and even if you don’t post it, still, oh, so so so beautiful. The couple’s names are Liz and Christina. And no, I don’t know them. This isn’t creepy, is it? Sorry if it is. :/ Okay, I’m done
Leah, not creepy at all. I’m grateful to you for encouraging me to share it, as this colorful lesbian wedding is a bit of a departure from my typical go to two-bride wedding aesthetics (and because I am a total sucker for that shot of the girls in their dresses and boots). Here you all go…

How sweet is this: Becca and Laura had a private ceremony at their church two months prior to their reception celebration. Separating the serious and the fun – ideal. It makes both elements equally special and important and allows a couple to specifically focus and reflect on what they are partaking in at that time.
