From the happy couple: When planning a wedding in Texas, our first thought was the date had to be in the fall, when the weather is beautiful. We met & began dating in the fall, so the season already had a special meaning to it. When thinking about what we wanted our wedding day to be, we just wanted to be able to look back on it and know we were in the moment of it all. More than anything, we wanted our wedding to feel authentic to both of us. The first vendor we met, The Minnericks, said something that stayed in our minds all through planning & the day of the wedding. Jeremy told us, “this is the one day in your life when all the people who love and support you are in the same room together, celebrating your love.” It was something so true and simple, yet often forgotten when planning a wedding.
We kept the wedding casual, fun and easy-going – just like us. A close personal friend acted as our officiant. She wrote beautiful words, which felt very true to our relationship and personalities. The reception was, and granted we are biased, the best party we have ever been to. Judging by the pictures, it looks like some of our guests might agree. Our memories include a lot of laughter, love, and (sometimes bad) dancing. The flutter-fetti (recommended by our wedding coordinator Nicole) was a hit! Many guests continued to pick up large piles and let it float around us all night. We loved every moment of our wedding and reliving the night through the beautiful pictures. We loved being surrounded and supported by so many. We feel truly lucky!

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.

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.

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!

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.

omigosh, the officiant and the munchkin are priceless… =) -S
From Tracy Wong: Since 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!
