From Brooke, Anna and Erika’s photographer: Last year, I had the pleasure of spending the day with two wonderful women, Anna and Erika. Throughout the day, I was reminded of how beautiful the love between two people can really be. It was a great day and awesome wedding to be a part of.
From Anna: As with any good lesbian love story, Erika (the tall one) and I met at a gay bar in Bloomington, Indiana in 2009 while we were both in grad school. She made some terrible puns, and I was hooked. We’ve been inseparable ever since.
We were so excited for this day! We had gotten engaged 2 weeks after marriage equality and were planning our wedding during the Religious Freedom Restoration Act outrage in Indiana. Luckily, we had no issues and worked with some really amazing people to make our big day happen. Our goal was to plan a fun party and hang out with our favorite people. Mission accomplished.
We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful photographer Brooke at The Lucky Willow Photography, Lacey from Blooms & Lace, and the wonderful folks at the Fountain Square Theatre in Indianapolis.

I was driving in the East Village early yesterday morning and the remnants of NYC pride looked a bit as though a very large unicorn puked up glitter and rainbows.
In honor of these festivities I’m sharing Jessi and Lizzy’s rainbow themed lesbian wedding photos because even though I have a bit of an aversion to color schemes that aren’t monochromatic (I am such a bore in that way) I do feel my heart swell with pride when I see all these colors. Who can’t fall in love with a rainbow kabob?
From Double K Photography: Jessi & Lizzy were married in New York City on July 24th 2011. We were able to be present as photographers to capture their intimate wedding reception in April in Lafayette, Indiana! They clearly love each other, and their family & friends adore them too! It was a great way to spend an evening!

I have a huge affinity for lesbians with tattoos so I have an extra reason to love Anna and Anna’s tongue-in-cheek theatre themed wedding.
From the Annas: Yep, another one of those same-named lesbian couples! We got married in the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, right smack dab in the middle of downtown Bloomington, Indiana. Nope, it’s not legal in Indiana, but we decided to have a giant party anyway! We got to personalize the marquee out front and printed our own Playbills to serve as the wedding programs. In January 2011, we made a short film for the local PRIDE Film Festival (“The Lady Bunch“), so we also designed a movie poster to display in the poster case in front of the theater. We got our good friend Anna (yep, another one) to officiate our wedding, and our little dog Mogwai was our ring bearer.
The parents of Anna S. (in the dress) gave Anna V. (in the suit) silver cufflinks from Anna S.’s grandfather. As you can see by the picture, Anna S.’s mom burst into tears when she saw her in her wedding dress! We asked our wedding party (and our guests, if they wanted) to wear Chucks so everyone could be cool and comfy. We also had a makeshift photo booth with props.
It was an amazing event, and great to be surrounded with so much love, especially in a state that does absolutely nothing to show love for its LGBT citizens.
We also made a short film about our wedding for the 2012 PRIDE Film Fest in Bloomington.
