Wedding: Marybeth & Molly

A few years ago I gave away a wedding dress on the blog and I am so happy that Marybeth won,saved it for a few years, wore it and looked incredible (the halter wedding dress below)! Their wedding cake even has a bicycle built for two topper! I am so happy that you shared this wedding with us- congrats Marybeth and Molly! -Tracey

From Molly: Marybeth and I met at school in 2009. She was a kindergarten teacher and I was teaching ESOL and working with students in her room. A co-worker introduced us and I will always remember what she said, “You are going to love Marybeth, she is incredible”. She was so incredible in fact, that I fell in love with her shortly after. We planned our wedding in small pieces over time and wanted it to be the perfect reflection of us together. This blog will always have a special place in our lives because Tracey gave us one of the first and most important pieces of our wedding, the dress that Marybeth wore. We saved it for quite some time before it actually was worn, but it was and she looked beautiful. We were officially engaged about two months before the Maryland vote on marriage equality and overjoyed when our state affirmed our relationship and desire to be married. We were married on the first day of fall, September 21st, in the presence of our closest friends and family in a beautiful park in Potomac, Maryland. We are so happy to finally be able to share our photos from our big day after spending so much time looking at the incredible photos here on the blog.

Wedding: Celia & Myrna

From Steph Grant, Celia & Myrna’s photographer: Hi! I am a LGBT wedding photographer. This wedding made me completely sappy. At the beginning of this month I took a last minute flight to California to photograph an absolutely stunning Los Angeles rooftop lesbian wedding. A storm was rolling in as the sun was setting, champagne glasses were clinking as the violin played in the background. It made for a perfect evening.

Wedding: Rachel & Rachel

From Rachel: Hey! We got married on an unseasonably hot October day at the Union Project in Pittsburgh, PA. We went for a fall-themed DIY wedding and succeeded! We did a lot of stuff for the wedding ourselves. Rachel made the beautiful flowers from old children’s books and a bit of paint. My mom and I made the flag banners. It also helped that our venue, Union Project, is a gorgeous site and didn’t require much decoration. Our goal was to have a day that was authentic and reflected who we were both as individuals and a couple. We also wanted to keep things local, so Rachel arranged for catering from a local cafe that employs at-risk youth. We entered to the Big Bang Theory theme music and our friends took turns officiating or doing readings for the ceremony. Our siblings were also in the wedding party. We wrote our own promises to each other and exchanged rings. Afterwards, everyone hung out, took pictures at the photo booth, ate some good food and drank some good wine, and socialized. We also had a cookie table, which is a Pittsburgh tradition. Everyone from the little kids to Rachel’s 87-year-old grandma had a blast!

Wedding: Meghan & Sarah

From Sarah: Meghan and I met in San Antonio, Texas while she was attending flight engineer school for the Air Force. I made fun of her shoes which was my way of “flirting” and never thought she would agree to go out with me after that, here we are almost 2 years later getting married. We chose New York because through out our relationship we went from living in San Antonio, TX to Dover, DE to Little Rock, AR and Shreveport, LA (Military) so our friends and family were scattered. Our wedding was very intimate, reBar was the perfect location, from graffiti to Victorian furniture and not to mention they had an amazing view of The Brooklyn Bridge. They catered the wedding and also had a great pastry chef, we decided to go with a dessert bar instead of a traditional wedding cake. We went with assortment of dessert shooters, cannoli, tarts and the cake pops were probably the best things I’ve ever tasted.


The wedding could not have been any better, specially since the entire thing was planned from a different state.

Wedding: Kelly & Nicole

omigosh, the officiant and the munchkin are priceless… =) -S

From Tracy WongSince Nicole and Kelly already had a commitment ceremony back in 2008, they kept matters pretty small for this day to make their union official. They were joined by a small group of close friends and their daughter Clementine for a civil ceremony in the gorgeous rotunda inside City Hall, then had a fun-filled celebration at the nearby Show Dogs. Show Dogs was just a 10-minute walk away from City Hall, plus Nicole loves their veggie corn dog! I also have to give their amazing friend/vegan blogger Micah Ludeke a shout out for the delicious Lemon and Raspberry wedding cake with chocolate ganache. That was so yummy!

Though the couple kept their legal wedding day private and simple, this was also an excuse to wear a new wedding dress and accessories! I love both Nicole’s peplum dress and Kelly’s Tulle gown. I hope Nicole and Kelly’s wedding can be a great source of inspiration of engaged couples out there on throwing a memorable and beautiful celebration with a personal flair!

Wedding: Brandi & Shelby

Sometimes we miss one in the archives– sorry ladies! Sending out congratulations with interest!

Shelby and Brandi met during their seniors year of college while they were both visiting home in Dallas, TX at a local lesbian bar. Over the next several months and year, their love grew stronger and they were ready to commit their lives to each other. In 2010 Shelby and Brandi went to Iowa with two friends and legalized their love before a judge! Two years later, Shelby and Brandi had their beautiful ceremony with 100 family and friends in attendance! Currently, Brandi and Shelby live in Colorado with their puppy, Bailey May. Brandi just finished her Master’s and Shelby is working on her PhD. They couldn’t be happier!
