Wedding: Erica & Brittany

From Jane, the brides’ photographer: Brittany and Erica first met in May 2014. Brittany swept Erica off her feet when she sent her a message on her online dating profile about macaroni and cheese. When the two met in person at Ubon Thai restaurant in Wilmington, Delaware, they hit it off right away.

On September 4, 2015, in Bethany Beach, Delaware—just a few miles down the coast from where they shared their second date—Brittany proposed to Erica. Showing off her creative side, Brittany created a homemade picture book that told their love story and Erica read it as they enjoyed a picnic. A little over a year later, they are thrilled to be celebrating the start of this next chapter with beloved family and friends!

Erica and Britt are a couple full of joy and who bring everyone together in any setting. Their wedding was no exception. There wedding was aboard a boat that took the couple from engaged to married to dancing in the mist of a beautiful nighttime cruise!

Wedding: Maureen & Morgan

From Morgan: Maureen and I met on OKCupid over four years ago. Even though we lived on either side of Los Angeles, we found out on our first date that we grew up less than a mile from each other, worked next door to each other in high school, and have mutual friends, among other coincidences. We were destined to cross paths and are thankful every day that we found one another.

We were able to plan the wedding of our dreams at one of our favorite places, the Ojai Valley Inn. We are so grateful for all of the amazing professionals that made our wedding so special and uniquely us, especially our incredible planner Michel of Michel B. Events, our florist Bree of RockRose Florals, and photographer Daniele of Lavender and Twine.

Surrounded by 130 of our close family and friends, we said our “I do’s” in the historic Wallace Neff courtyard with the rolling hills of the Ojai Valley as our backdrop. The ceremony was followed by cocktail hour in the terraced herb garden. The Get Down Boys provided a fun bluegrass music backdrop and were a hit with our guests. The reception dinner was held on the Orchard lawn below and was set up with extra long tables and strung with twinkle lights. DJ Wes of RedShoe L.A. got everyone on the dance floor following our first dance and joint father/daughter dance. 

It was the most memorable weekend of our lives and we can’t wait to go back to relive it every year on our anniversary!

Wedding: Rebecca & Katie

From Rebecca & Katie, #TheLuckyDucketts: The night before we got married our venue called to tell us they had just lost power. Our region was experiencing widespread flooding, wind damage and power outages due to Hurricane Matthew. We took a deep breath and tried to keep it in perspective because although we were running into challenges (delayed vendor arrivals, guests canceling) we knew there were others affected by the storm much more severely than we were.

The morning arrived quickly. Our bride tribe worked at lightning speed to set everything up in order to be ready for our scheduled three o’clock ceremony. We walked out to Patti Griffin’s “Heavenly Day” and as we said our vows, the sun began to come out. One of our good friends performed our first dance song, “Slow Pony Home” by the Weepies. We made the day our own by adding in a Chambong and jumping on stage with the band. At one point a bouquet landed in a chandelier during the bouquet toss (but that wasn’t intentional!).

Delicious food, lots of wood accents and flowers, and quite possibly the best 80’s cover band in the country made our wedding day a dream, but being surrounded by our loving friends and family made it perfect. We had spectacular vendors and people helping us, and we’re beyond grateful for all of the love and support we received. It was truly the most special day of our lives and we’re SO glad to be finally married!

Today’s Story 

“Rain was predicted for our wedding day, and we were both so nervous, but when the time came and we had to make a choice to stay under cover and play it safe or take a chance and do things our way, we chose our way. We made it to the vows when the rain started to fall. Even though we had both spent so much time being afraid of the storm, when it hit it was like the pressure of making our wedding perfect just washed away.”—Dani & Melanie

Today’s Story

“We moved in together by February with my three kids and their dad, who has become one of Monika’s best friends. We are all very happy together and I love that our family is so unique. My kids absolutely adore Monika and she is so great with them. 

In September of 2015, Monika surprised me for my 40th birthday by taking me to Maui! As part of the surprise, she made me a board with 40 tins on them that each held little gifts or notes about what we were going to do in Maui. Tin number 31 held my engagement ring and at midnight on our one year anniversary, she proposed to me on the beach, under the stars in Maui. It was so magical and beautiful!”Monika & Autumn

2016 in Review: Parkas, Parasols, and Pocketwatches!

In honor of the end of this crazy, crazy year, we’d like to treat you to an end-of-year round up! Way back in the early days of the blog, Tracey used to do a “year in review” series, and for the rest of December, we’ll be doing something similar—a kind of highlights reel of some of the beautiful weddings and engagements we’ve posted in 2016.

Each day, we’ll share a selection from a couple’s story, a sweet engagement shot, a wedding detail, and a picture of two ladies kissing: a smorgasbord of LBTQ love and delight to warm your hearts and souls—in the face of steadily dropping temperatures (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere)!

Whether you’re planning a holiday engagement or spring wedding, we hope you’ll take this opportunity to peruse our archives for inspiration—and if you’re recently married or engaged, don’t forget to send in your stories and pictures via our submission page!

Today’s Story

Rhodes and I first met in 2010 during my freshman year of college during a course called Philosophy of Ethics. She was a senior philosophy major and I was pre-med. Unbeknownst to me, Rhodes was crushing on me from day one. Throughout the year we hung out more, resulting in her even asking me to pride prom in the spring…” Kaylin & Rhodes

Today’s Engagement Shot

We love this Washington state shot with Megan & Jenna—it’s not every couple that can look glam in parkas!

Today’s Wedding Details

We couldn’t resist picking two from the month of January: this selection of artfully mismatched parasols carried by Tara and Megan‘s wedding party…

parasols…and this beautiful pocket watch, with a photo of broom Marissa’s late father, so that he could be present for Marissa & Sarah‘s big day.
