Wedding: Carole & Louise

From Carole & Louise’s photographer: Carole & Louise had a relaxed barn wedding in the UK. The day was set in the rolling countryside. They had a bright colour scheme, with orange details and flowers. Both brides wore white trousers and tops—the typical princess wedding dress wasn’t for them. Very in keeping with the relaxed vibe of the day, focus was on friends, family, and good food.

Gallery: Weddings On the Water

With the temperature in the 90s every day here in North Carolina, Ashley and I are longing for lakeside living, and these weddings fit the bill! Last winter, we featured beach weddings (here and here) to cure your winter blues—now, these lovely waterside celebrations offer the perfect breath of fresh air in the midst of a hot summer (at least in this hemisphere!).

Link Love: Catalyst Wedding Co.

When Tracey started A Bicycle Built for Two, sources of LBTQ+ wedding inspiration were still few and far between—but in the last seven (!!) years, times have changed for the better. Today, we’re fortunate to exist in the midst of an amazing landscape of LBTQ+ wedding goodness, so we’re starting this new feature to share with you just a few of our favorite things in the queer wedding space!

IMG_3552

Today’s Link Love is going out to Catalyst Wedding Co., a print and online publication that covers “love, sex, weddings, and marriage for feminists, the LGBTQ community, & woke folk.” Obviously, their mission is right up our alley, and we’re always pumped to see their great features on real LBTQ+ couples like long-distance lovers Jen & Amy, amazing activists Bianca and Christina, and NYC’s Rachel & Leah, well known to Hamilton fans for their backstage engagement ft. Lin-Manual Miranda. Recent weddings include Crystal and Michaela’s gorgeous two-dress affair featuring both pearls AND lace and Dana and Colleen’s rainy day, which ended with a REAL rainbow!

The folks at Catalyst are the quintessential wedding space disruptors, working to increase representation and challenge gender roles in the often very Barbie & Ken world of wedding planning. We are so inspired by their work, and we hope you’ll head on over to their site, follow them on Instagram, and maybe even subscribe to that fancy magazine, pictured above!

Look for Link Love every Friday through the end of August—and drop us a line if you have a suggestion for a featured link!

Flashback Friday: Lindsay & Christine

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team (and friends!) are revisiting some of our all-time favorite weddings!

From Ashley:

I am a sucker for DIY weddings, and Lindsay & Christine’s is one that stands out as a favorite of mine! They designed/produced all of the beautiful details of their wedding and the results are truly impressive (check out those gorgeous centerpieces as an example!). I also love this white suit coat/black pants situation and the more feminine take on the bow tie. Finally, this last photo really makes me think we’d be great friends… Brides who dance are my kind of people.

Road Trip: Boston

In 2003, Massachusetts became the first state to recognize marriage equality, so it seems fitting that we’re shipping up to Boston for the first stop on our LBTQ wedding road trip!

In 2014, Melissa & Jamie traveled from Tampa, Florida (where same-sex marriage was not yet legal!) to get married in Boston, and took some adorable photos around the city:

Then, there’s this glorious shot from
 Kate & Amanda‘s wedding at the Ritz-Carlton-Boston-Common:1-Amanda_Kate-269

Erin & Karen‘s wedding on the Boston harbor (or, I should say, “hah-bah”) is also lovely:image10

As is Anne & Tina‘s engagement on the Charles River Esplanade:

I, personally, am completely in love with Carol & Anna’s wedding at the Metropolitan Waterworks Museum:

The Arnold Arboretum has also been a prime location for both weddings, like Jennifer & Shereta‘s…

… and engagements, like Gretchenrae & Molly‘s:

Cambridge has been the place for some hip weddings as well; in particular, Samantha & Whitney‘s wedding at the Blue Room…

Wedding: Emma & Katie

Emma and Katie’s Georgia wedding was our kind of day: featuring some top-notch dancing, donuts, AND cake. Watch their video here, and be prepared to cry. Their vows are pretty amazing. As for their message on the blog, they kept it simple.

From the bride & broom: It was the best day of our lives and the most fun we’ve ever had (and we have a lot of fun)!
