Wedding: Erin & Heidi

From Erin: Heidi and I met on our first day of nursing school at St. Francis Xavier University in the small town of Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Walking up to the School of Nursing I was terrified and had no idea where I was heading. A sweet little blonde with kind eyes appeared and asked me if I was in first-year nursing, and when I replied “yes,” she said “good – will you sit with me in every class?” We sat next to each other for the next four years. Eight years later, we’re now a happy married couple! The day was simple, relaxed and lovely: everything we dreamt it to be. It was such a whirlwind but we are thankful we had a fabulous photographer, who captured our day beautifully!

Wedding: Sara & Megan

From Megan: Sara and I met online, and we hit it off over a shared love of maps and This American Life. We had our first date at Metsker Maps near Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA, and returned one year later for our elopement. We both have very supportive families and planned to keep our elopement quiet until a big wedding… but word got out pretty fast due to some loose Instagramming within the wedding party! All in all, we were very happy to have a small ceremony with close friends at a place that is very dear to our hearts, and we have the honor of being Metsker’s first map store wedding in 28 years of business!

Wedding Video: Nikki & Sara

From Nikki and Sara’s filmmakers, With LoveNikki and Sara planned a beautiful weekend up in Cold Spring, New York for their wedding. Close family and friends arrived on Friday for a welcome BBQ. On Saturday, guests chose from kayaking, hiking, or shopping in the town of Beacon. On Saturday afternoon and evening they held a Quaker Ceremony (even thought they’re not Quaker, but they really love the idea!) where friends and family were able to share thoughts and memories about the couple, followed by a moonlit dinner. Sunday was the big day, including a beautiful outdoors ceremony and a white tent reception.

Wedding: Amanda & Dani

From Jessica, Amanda and Dani’s photographer: Amanda and Dani met a very long time ago at summer camp and ended up finding each other again years later! Their wedding was at the Hyatt at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia, PA. These ladies were two of the funnest women to work with!

Wedding: Keven & Lynn

From Julia Mehler, Keven & Lynn’s photographer: Keven and Lynn’s Wedding was a beautiful lesbian wedding in Mill Valley California. Their matching gold wedding dresses designed by Nicole Miller matched their personalities perfectly. On the inside of their dresses they each had matching pins that said, “I’d rather be kissing my nerdy wife.” The day started at the Acqua Hotel in Mill Valley with a beautiful lake as the backdrop to some couple photos. Mill Valley Golf Course was a great venue for the ceremony and reception with lots of dark wood on the interior and a woodsy feel outside that worked well for a January wedding.

Keven and Lynn glowed with love and affection for each other. They had so much fun during their couple photographs laughing, whispering sweet nothings to each other, and sword fighting with their matching bouquets. The evening was filled with good food, lots of dancing with every guest participating, and even the hokey pokey. All of the guests and vendors lit up with glow sticks while dancing to good music. I am so glad that Keven and Lynn were finally able to legally tie the knot in California.

Wedding: Cassie & Dana

From Dana: Cassie and I met shortly after I moved to Maine on a blind, lesbian double date while dating other people…presumably a rare occurrence for the Bangor area. After a magical summer in Bar Harbor followed by two years apart for graduate school, we found ourselves back on Mount Desert Island with 200 of our favorite people to tie the knot.

Our wedding weekend was a wonderful disaster. Horrific weather moved our ceremony, messed up quite a few travel itineraries, and forced us to trade in fancy shoes for rain boots. The craziness forced my type-A tendencies to give way to taking in every moment. The amount of love, support, and incredible dance moves that filled our rainy tent was perfection we’ll never forget.

Wedding: Alexis & Corinne

From Alexis: Corinne (long dress) and I (short dress) were married at Franklin Circle Church in Ohio City, Ohio. Both of our bridal parties got ready on opposite sides of a conjoined suite in the Ritz-Carton Cleveland. We purposely booked a suite with French doors dividing the two spaces, giving us both privacy and a dramatic photo for a first look!

After our first look we took photos at the Cleveland Public Library right in downtown Cleveland. The beautiful marble accents and murals reflected our personalities and served as a great backdrop for our wedding portraits.

Corinne and I wrote our own ceremony and included our entire bridal party, each member saying a small quote about love. We were blessed to have 150 of our family and friends witness our special day. Before the start of the ceremony we asked each person to sign our homemade Quaker wedding certificate. Because we live in Ohio, we would not be able to have a marriage license. It was important to us to have something to signify our day and the tradition of the Quaker was license was perfect.

After the ceremony we took a limo to Tower City where we finished our wedding portraits under the archways of the historic terminal. Our reception was held in the English Oak Room, the old terminal restaurant renovated to match it’s appearance from the 1930′s. Corinne and her mother completed all of the table decorations, thrifting for silver and china making each table it’s own unique version of a stylized French tea service. During our cake cutting, we wanted to symbolize everyone around us becoming one family. Each table had a different flavor cheesecake and on a count of three we all cut our cakes and shared them.

Another tradition we revamped was the father-daughter dance. We decided to share the dance as a family. During John Mayer’s “Daughters”, Corinne danced with her father while I danced with mine. About a minute into the song, we switched dads to dance with our new father-in-laws. A minute after that, we invited our mothers to the floor and as a family we six danced the remainder of the song.

All in all, it was an incredible day and we could not have pulled it off without our wonderful family, bridal party, and the great vendors who helped us out. Our photographers, Kelsey and Meghann of IN Lace were incredible. They were attentive to all of our requests and were there for us literally every step of the way. Cristina Lowenfeld at Executive Caterers was just as gracious and continually went out of her way to guarantee a successful and amazing night. I especially wanted to mention the incredible talent of these ladies because I want to personally recommend them to anyone in the Cleveland/Akron/Toledo area.
