Wedding: Rocio & Riza

From Riza: Rocio and I met on October 1st, 2010, Rocio proposed to me on October 1st, 2015, and we were married on Oct 1st, 2016. We both love the desert and decided to have an outdoor wedding at the Le Haute Desert Aerie in Pioneertown. We walked down the aisle to mariachis playing and we were married by our close friend Sara. For the reception we served ceviche and chorizo tostadas as an appetizer and tacos for dinner. My friend Sam, who I went college with was the DJ, and she kept everyone dancing the entire night. Having our closest friends and family all together and dancing in one place was an amazing experience. It was the happiest, and hands down, the best day of my life!

Wedding: Kaysey & Jacque

From Kaysey: Jacque and I married on a beautiful autumn day in Portland at Holocene, a local club/venue that hosts many queer dance parties that we have enjoyed over the years. Out friends and family did a brilliant job decorating and bringing the warm colors of autumn into the room. My little brother sang an original song as we walked down the aisle. Our best friend Mark married us, and we all nervously giggled together. We served tacos and cupcakes and spent the night dancing to our favorite songs. It was the most joyful room I have ever been in. My advice: make the ceremony your own. If you want to be political, poetic, spiritual, religious, traditional, radical—do it! We chose an excerpt from the Obergefell v. Hodges Supreme Court decision during our ceremony, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. I’m so grateful to be married to this strong, sensitive, beautiful best friend of mine!

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!

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.

Gallery: Get Me to the Church on Time!

Here at the blog, we love featuring weddings of all faiths and no faith, but in this gallery, we wanted to focus on a collection of lovely weddings that take place in churches—from North Carolina to California to the U.K.. When so many of us have had to struggle in the intersection of our faith and our queer identities, there’s something particularly beautiful about seeing these couples say their vows in front of congregations filled with family and friends. No matter your own religious background, we know you’ll see the love on display in these sanctuaries, at these altars, and up and down the aisles pictured here.
