Amanda and Matilda’s wedding day took guests to new heights! You won’t be able to look away from this Colorado trans wedding, from the architecturally stunning venue to the brides’ breathtaking dresses and finally, the CUTEST inclusive alternative wedding bouquet toss.
Fair warning: this amazing, colorful wedding shoot includes ALL THE COLORS, just in time to yeet those Winter blues away. Coming to you from Pittsburgh, the combined powers of Maya Lovro (photographer), Amanda Wolf (planner), and Kati Grimes (fashion designer) created something magical: think “Lisa Frank marries Billy Porter” where all the players are LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and/or allies to both!
Politically, things in Florida are a mess which leaves local wedding vendors and queer soonlyweds questioning the state of LGBTQ-friendly weddings in Florida. Let’s talk about the current climate, how it affects LGBTQ-friendly Florida weddings, and ways to support queer folks in the Sunshine State.
This team of vendors conjured the idea of a dream wedding over drinks at a local mixer: something full of dark elegance and mystery, centered around a lovely couple they had in mind. Cillia of Marion Matrimony Events proposed the idea of a Sleepy Hollow Wedding, and everyone was on board! Black wedding dress paired with a floral back tattoo? Oh my Goth YES.
I was interviewed recently for a story in the New York Times about how to find inclusive wedding vendors who align with your values. I hate that the 2023 Supreme Court ruling made this issue something that we need to talk about, but I’m honored to get to speak up on behalf of those of us in the wedding industry willing to take a strong stance around inclusivity.
We think the best way to describe the proceedings is as a three-day wedding festival – vibrant, cheery, and outdoors! They didn’t realize they had a theme until after sharing what they were wearing themselves on the day and someone described it as “Disco Pride” and people seemed to run with that which was great!
