There’s something particularly special about a same sex wedding. I absolutely love being a part of them! I think its knowing that not too long ago it wasn’t legal… and these couples had to fight for their right to marry, It gives their ceremonies a heightened sense of emotion (I always cry… and I mean ugly cry)… and then following, the celebration is that much bigger!
Below you’ll find a video montage of a few of my lgbtq+ couples.
Now, check out these two awesome couples that were featured in nationwide publications!! Enjoy the pictures…the stories…and the inspiration!
Todd & Scott’s Station House Wedding | Florida LGBTQ+ Wedding Photography
Todd and Scott were married on January 27, 2019, at the quirky and eclectic Station House in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was such an honor being their same sex wedding photographer for this fun wedding filled with personalized details…. They wanted a laid-back celebration to enjoy with their family and friends… and they found the perfect spot for that at the Station House. Their photogenic Boston terrier was dressed for the occasion with his own tiny bow tie!
Even rain couldn’t dampen their spirits! In fact, the rainy wedding weather resulted in some of my favorite photos of their wedding day. To see more of Todd and Scott’s amazing details, read their feature in Gay Weddings and Marriage Magazine (pages 40-43). Some of my personal favorites from their wedding day are shared here, below:
During Todd and Scott’s cocktail hour, they had Hyppo (a local St Pete company) create Champagne Pops by taking their signature popsicles and serving them in a glass of champagne. So AMAZING!
Amy & Grace’s malibu Wedding | Destination LGBTQ+ Wedding Photography
Amy and Grace were married on August 7, 2016 in a beachfront ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the Malibu West Beach Club in Malibu, California. The stunning colors of the sand, sky, and sea provided the inspiration for their bridesmaids’ dresses and wedding details… not to mention a gorgeous backdrop for their Jewish ceremony… Amy and Grace wanted to celebrate their love by choosing female wedding vendors from their community. Author and lesbian Jewish activist, Rabbi Lisa Edwards, officiated the ceremony. Award-winning singer/songwriter Jennifer Corday, who was recently featured in the national ‘Ride with Pride’ UBER commercial, provided the entertainment at the reception, making their day even more meaningful and memorable. Please read about their wedding in the Real Weddings section of the Let’s Bee Together blog and enjoy some of my favorite wedding photos of their day below:
Proud to be a LGBTQ+ Friendly Photographer
I believe that it’s important to learn a little bit more… and do our best for others… each day. In that spirit, I invite you to join me and more than 250,000 people in the St. Pete Pride Celebration… the largest Pride celebration in Florida… and one of the oldest in the country! 2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots… so it was especially meaningful for me to be there to support this open and loving community.
