Wedding: Lisa & Marina

Today we’re thrilled to bring you an award-winning LBTQ wedding! Lisa and Marina’s wedding recently won a Belief Award, a prestigious international award for wedding planners. The Belief Award team reached out to us to share the couple’s story:

This was the wedding of two Muscovites. In Russia, same-sex marriage is not allowed; however, it was very important for the brides to be registered and recognized officially. Lisa and Marina chose to be married in Portugal.

Lisa and Marina met occasionally in Berlin, and this city marked their lives forever. Traveling is one of the favorite activities of the couple. So, one day they came to Portugal, the country of great travelers, to make the most important decision of their relationship.

The main idea for the decor came from rustic chic. One of the most important and even crucial elements turned out to be the wedding bouquet. The objective in some ways was to reproduce the old master paintings using David Austin roses. 

It was quite emotional to make this alliance happen. Overall, they had a cozy party for 15 people who enjoyed incredibly tasty catering.

Wedding: Jen & Beth

We found today’s wedding through Beth’s personal blog, The Babbling Blonde—and we couldn’t be happier! After you’ve ready Beth & Jen’s story and scrolled through the gorgeous photos below, make your next step Beth’s site, where you can read Beth’s “Tales of a Bisexual Bride,” as well as other stories from Beth and Jen’s wedding planning experience!

Now, here’s their story: Jen and Beth met in the early spring of 2014 when they began working at the same company. After a fast friendship made them platonic companions for the next year, both of them finally wised up to the fact that there was something more to the relationship. They began dating in the summer of 2015, and Jen proposed at Konzelmann winery among the waters of Niagara Falls in Canada in July of 2016.

As a super fan of the Dave Matthews Band, Beth had previously bribed Jen to chase the band around to quite a few concerts over the years, including one in Charlottesville, Virginia. While they were in town for the show that same summer, they attended a wine tasting at Blenheim Vineyards, the local winery owned by Dave. Beth and Jen fell in love with the atmosphere and decided to make it their wedding venue.

After several visits to the winery and a few months of hectic planning, the two tied the knot on April 22, 2017. The skies couldn’t have been darker, and the rain couldn’t have been steadier, but everything was perfect under the tent outside by the sprawling vineyard. The cozy ceremony took place in the same space as the reception with a few reading from close friends, a gift and sand ceremony with Jen’s  5-year-old daughter, Mia, and an ode to the elements.

Once they made it official, Beth, Jen, and Mia ate and danced the night away with their closest family and friends. The first dance was to Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do”, and they finished the night out in rambunctious style with Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl”. The food was delicious, the cake was to die for, and guests also enjoyed a homestyle cookie table supplied by Beth’s family, which is a Pittsburgh and West Virginia wedding staple.

The wedding made official what everyone already knew: a little family of two became #McDpartyof3, finally legally.

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.

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)!

Wedding: Bonnie & Ali

From Jay, Bonnie & Ali’s photographer: I was honored to photograph this lovely intimate wedding in Nashville, TN for these 2 amazing ladies! They came to me Thanksgiving week looking to bump their wedding up to New Year’s Eve 2016, being unsure about the Trump administration. Our wonderful Nashville mayor, Megan Barry, agreed to officiate the wedding at relatively short notice at her home—she’s been a great ally for the LGBT community. Ali hired a car through Matchless Transportation, a 1961 Jaguar to transport them to the mayor’s house from their first look spot… then the guest ceremony and reception took place at their friend’s larger home in East Nashville. The day was full of people, laughs, and nice intimate feel. They hired a personal chef crew and had me lurk in the shadows to document the event.
