From Anne Marie: Gorgeous day (I suppose every bride says that) – outdoor morning ceremony at the gardens at Tudor Place in Georgetown, Washington, DC (the estate of Martha Washington’s granddaughter), followed by a champagne brunch at the rooftop at the Beacon Hotel, Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. Smallish event, about 70 people, which was perfectly sized for us as we were surrounded by our nearest and dearest.

From Christine: First, I must say that I visited this website on a daily basis when we were planning our wedding. I loved looking at all the pictures and reading each couple’s story. It was so inspirational to see other couples like us getting married and creating ceremonies that were unique and special.
Our story: We met through friends at a party in Philly. For Jamie, it was love at first sight. It didn’t take long for me to become completely head over heels too, and within a few weeks, we were inseparable. In 2008, Jamie asked if she could keep me forever, and of course, I said YES! We waited until 2012, when civil unions were finally legalized in Delaware, to have our wedding. All of our summers together were spent in Rehoboth, so it seemed like the perfect place for us to have our wedding. We found a gorgeous venue to have a ceremony outside and a dance floor big enough to party the night away.
It was the most amazing day of our lives. Our friends and family had traveled from PA, NY, NJ, WA, and VA to celebrate with us. Our close friend, Tammy, had prepared for months and led us in a ceremony that we created ourselves. It was really important to show everyone that love is love no matter what, and I think we succeeded. Our ceremony has been described to us as the most heart-felt expression of love and commitment they have ever witnessed.
Looking back, there is absolutely nothing we would change. At one point during the reception, we looked around the room to see all types of couples on the dance floor. Love was all around us, and that it is all that we ever really need in life.

From Leanne Rose: I met Cindy and Allison during College and from the first time I saw them together roaming the hallways, I knew they had an everlasting bond. Their wedding was on a beautiful late Sunday afternoon in a big white tent with a garden in the background. The best way to describe their wedding was written on the ceremony program. ” It means a great deal to us to have each of you here today. Thank you for witnessing our expression of love for each other through the vows that begin our new life together. We feel that our love stems from our capacity to love deeply, enjoy simply, and to think freely. Our special wish is that you will continue to be part of our lives. Without friends, family, and community we have very little.”
From Allison: We met at work, from that first day we became great friends and had an instant connection. That was eight years ago, we have lived inseparable for 5 years now. During our first year of living with each other Cindy asked my mother for my hand, but not for marriage, but for her blessing. We truly are blessed to have each other and family who are just as happy. She is my best friend, my soul mate, and partner that I get to spend my life with.
